Company Objectives

High Availability

The Challenge:

The financial institution was an existing Atlassian customer, but its on-premise instances were highly fractured between individual teams. In addition, many Atlassian instances were multiple versions behind and needed support for maintenance and upgrades. This large and complex environment was both a challenge to manage and one that hindered growth.

The financial institution needed a secure and scalable enterprise platform that offered Data Encryption, High Availability, High Performance, Disaster Recovery, Single Sign-On (SSO), and Integration with its other DevOps tools. It lacked the specialized skill sets to manage this solution in-house and required assistance from partners.

The Solution:

To meet the customer’s requirements, iTMethods recommended to upgrade its existing Jira and Confluence Server products to Atlassian Data Center running on our SaaS Platform to provide a scalable and secure solution that offered High Availability, High Performance, and Disaster Recovery.

iTMethods demonstrated the technical expertise to architect and execute this cutting-edge enterprise migration, a first of its kind for iTMethods and AWS. iTMethods collaborated closely with the financial institution and AWS to understand the technical, process, and cost-related issues associated with a migration of this scale and implement a streamlined transition for the financial institution.

The AWS Cloud provides industry-leading security. Cloud security is the highest priority for AWS, and the AWS Cloud is built to reflect that by incorporating things like self-healing mechanisms, vulnerability reporting, and privacy safeguards. iTMethods also underwent rigorous security testing to guarantee its processes and practices met strict standards.
