Atlassian Data Residency

Alpha Serve recognizes the importance of data residency and security for its customers. This documentation provides an overview of Atlassian Data Residency, its significance, and instructions on how to utilize the Power BI Connector for Jira Cloud add-on to leverage this feature effectively.


What is Atlassian Data Residency?

Atlassian Data Residency allows customers to choose the region where their data is stored and processed. This ensures compliance with local data protection regulations and addresses privacy concerns. By opting for Atlassian Data Residency, organizations can maintain control over their data and enhance compliance.

How Does Atlassian Data Residency Work?

Atlassian partners with reputable cloud infrastructure providers to store and process customer data within specific geographical regions. When a customer selects a region for their Atlassian products, such as Jira Cloud, the associated data is stored in data centers located within that region. This approach ensures data stays within designated regions and complies with local regulations.

Why Is Atlassian Data Residency Important?

  1. Compliance with Data Protection Regulations: Atlassian Data Residency helps organizations adhere to diverse data protection and privacy regulations. By storing data within the chosen region, potential legal and compliance risks are mitigated.

  2. Enhanced Data Security: Storing data within a specific region reduces the risk of unauthorized access or data breaches. Atlassian employs robust security practices to protect sensitive information and maintain data confidentiality.

  3. Addressing Privacy Concerns: Atlassian Data Residency provides transparency and reassurance to customers regarding the management of their data. It ensures that data remains within the chosen region, addressing privacy concerns and building trust in the platform.
