About YouTrack Server
YouTrack Server is a distributed version of the YouTrack software application that you host on your own server. This gives you the flexibility to store and manage your data according to the needs of your organization. It also means you have the option to schedule upgrades to your installation when it's most convenient for you and your team.
Here's what you get with YouTrack Server:
Complete control over your data.
With YouTrack Server, you can run the application behind your organization's firewall — or even restrict access to your internal network. Sensitive information is kept in-house where no other party has access to it, not even the YouTrack support team. If you ever encounter a situation that requires disclosing information from your installation with a member of the support team for troubleshooting purposes, you decide what information can be shared.
Security and regulatory compliance.
By running the application in your own data center, you have complete control over where and how your data is stored. This is particularly advantageous for our customers in heavily regulated industries, like healthcare and fintech.
The ability to manage and schedule routine database backup.
Import from other issue tracking and project management tools using predefined import scripts.
No-effort migration to YouTrack Cloud using a backup copy of the data from your self-hosted installation, and vice versa.
