What is your rating of the Atlassian product

Atlassian Update 2020: Atlassian will discontinue the server lineup in 2024.

Why is the server line being discontinued?

Atlassian wants to become a “cloud-first company” and is now focusing on the products Data center and Cloud. As a result, Atlassian expects to be able to respond better and faster to changing customer requirements.

What changes have been announced?

For all Server products:

In order to offer a first-class cloud experience, Atlassian is discontinuing the sale of new licenses for the server offering and the Atlassian apps on 02/02/2021. Anyone who has acquired or already has licenses by then can continue to operate their Atlassian instances (Confluence, Jira, Bitbucket, etc.) without problems until 02/02/2024. Atlassian will also continue to guarantee maintenance and support during this period. However, there will be no further development of the platform (e.g. new functions). The prices for the server products will also be increased. This is intended, inter alia. a smooth migration z. B. can be guaranteed in the Atlassian Cloud. The new prices for server renewals & updates can be found here.

For Data Center Products:

For existing data center customers nothing will change apart from the announced price increase. For existing server customers, switching to the Data Center option is associated with the least amount of migration effort. The data center licenses only have to be imported. A further development of the data center platform will also be actively promoted in the coming years. In addition, better integration options with the cloud products are to be created.
