Atlassian has announced that they are ending sales for their server products on February 2, 2021. If you're using these products, you wont be able to purchase new licenses after February 2, and there will be updates for prices for renewals and upgrades. Support for server products will continue through to February 2, 2024, letting organisations transition to Atlassian Cloud products.
A large number of Atlassian clients are still using their server products, many of which are enterprise clients with deep customisation of their products like Jira.
If you're wondering how this is going to impact your Atlassian implementation and the potential disruptions to your business, LPS is here to help.
As one of the few Atlassian Silver partners in New Zealand, we have the experience and credentials to support you on your journey to cloud. We can help you transition and upgrade to the new cloud suite of products, from executing the project management of the transition through to configuration and integration.
We'll work through the cloud journey with you, moving through the transition steps:
- Assess: Should we move to cloud? What are the trade-offs?
- Plan: What’s our strategy? What steps will we take to get there?
- Prep: Get people, data, and environments ready to migrate.
- Test: Does the migration work? How long does it take?
- Migrate: Data and users are moved to cloud and any issues are resolved.
- Launch: Help users get set up and retire server.
As the cloud suite is Atlassian's major focus, new features are being added consistently to their key cloud offerings like Jira, Confluence, BitBucket and Service Desk. This is a great time to leverage the new features, which are not available in server products. You can check out Atlassian's cloud roadmap here.
Atlassian are offering Server and Data Center customers the opportunity to explore and evaluate cloud at their own pace for up to 12 months free of charge. You can learn more about this offering here.
