UPCOMING CHANGES IN ATLASSIAN’S SERVER AND DATA CENTER OFFERING
Atlassian’s main goal in the future is to become an all-cloud company, as this is recognized by the whole IT industry. To accomplish this, they have announced their plan to discontinue the sale of their server products. Their clear cloud strategy contains two solutions known as Atlassian Cloud (SaaS) and Atlassian Data Center (IaaS). According to Atlassian data, over 90% of new customers have already chosen Atlassian Cloud as their solution. For customers with strict residence policies and control, Atlassian offers the Data Center solution as an alternative.
As of February 2, 2021, Atlassian terminated the sale of its new perpetual server (on-premise) licenses. On February 2, 2024, this change will fully go into effect, meaning that support and bug fixes will no longer be available for server licenses.
