Atlassian relies on the fact that a startup will buy the 10€ license as it’s dirt cheap for such a product. When the company grows, they will fork out thousands of dollars for larger licenses.
Atlassian products are made to scale to thousands+ of users. This unfortunately means that minimum requirements are quite brutal. You really need a dual core + 2GB RAM as a minimum for a JIRA instance serving even 1 user.
Don’t bother, I’ve used it a couple years ago too , it got clunky, then they started to strip down the community version in favor of the paid version.
It was because of odoo that I ended up in erpnext. Erpnext haves everything I need but the problem is that they moved too fast to goble up vertical markets instead of polishing up what they already have. And their public channels are pretty much dead with users screaming for help.
But if you liked odoo you should definitely take a look at erpnext. If I recall correctly erpnext came out ahead of odoo in some industry award thingy.
Interesting, that’s a shame. Thanks for the heads up though. I’ll check out erpnext. I’ve also been wanting to check out OpenProject as well to see how that is – more interested in the proj mgmt / issue tracking stuff over the erp-related stuff.
I would avoid it if you plan on self hosting. It’s a nightmare to maintain or keep stable. In the past I’ve just had scripts that literally restart it every hour and make sure it’s online, if not reboot (the whole node, because that’s how broken it can be). It can be stable, that’s for sure, and I’m sure many people don’t have many problems if any, but that software (and as I’ve come to learn, a lot of front facing software written in Java) is going to cause you hassle at some point, if not regularly.
This is also comes from someone who has worked at a shop that made a lot of money selling everything Atlassian.
Yeah I know about how hungry it is for resources. I am pretty much averaging my experience out across hundreds of instances with varying configurations, concurrent users, general activity.
I wouldn’t recommend someone start out with it, because you become dependent on that way of doing things, and when you try to scale in the future, it will not only cost you thousands just on licensing, but also on time spent maintaining it or even worse moving to another system. However, this all flies out the window (along with your cash) if you’re not self-hosting. Then it’s someone else’s problem.
Not as much as trello but still simple.
It’s grear for a lightweight cooperation.
Some nice stuff.
You can have several departments, each with their own projects.
Message streams per task and per project.
Update the task via email
Upload files are or link to file on dropbox, etc…
I’m on a phone so I’ll stop here. I know it haves lots of integrations with external apps, but I never explored that.
Sorry didn’t mean to scare you that much It’s great software, but you did ask for experience so I gave mine.
If you want that unicorn with all of the features you wanted, well Atlassian products do that, and there isn’t a lot of real competition, it’s similar to cPanel and SolusVM. If you’re running one or two users, and you can set aside a decent chunk of resources - you’ll probably only run into problems every now and then, say some annoying Java error every month or so. I think that’s fine for a lot of people, so the $10 offers are great.
If you see any sort of scale in the future, like tens of employees or more, or lots of clients that need to access it, or if it’s going to be public facing with a lot of hits, then self-hosted will become a pain in the ass, and license fees shoot up. I can tell you, there’s a reason there is a (relatively) large market for Atlassian hosting - because people don’t want to deal with that shit. It might be that you never get to the point of needing to deal with it though. I hope this came across a little more balanced since
