Last year we started working on a new add-on for Atlassian JIRA. After months of work we decided to drop everything and start over on a relatively new platform, JIRA Cloud. This was a radical decision that definitely kept us up at night. This short story is about this decision.
Our infra will have a big upgrade next week. At this very moment the latest issues are being addressed and we will start rolling with a new virtualization setup! But why invest in hardware at a time where cloud / iaas / paas providers are popping up like mushrooms?
We all know it, backing up your stuff is a real pain. And in my experience if something horrible is going to happen, it usually happens right in that stretch of time in between your next scheduled backup and when your current one becomes obsolete.
But this time it was all different…
We attended the Atlassian Launch Night in Amsterdam on October 26th.
Here’s the short summary:
Atlassian is moving into the cloud, and they’re really going for it!!
We are very excited about this and you should be as well…
