Timeline regarding the end of support for Server platform
Due to the changes we recommend you to check the options for your platform and consider migrating either to Atlassian Data Center or to Cloud platform.
Data Center – high availability alternative to Server
Unlike with Server solution, Data Center platform offers an option to set up your database to connected cluster nodes; load balancing minimizes the risks for possible system failures and downtimes. Data Center platform is suitable especially for delicate data that requires on-premise nodes and self managed maintenance.
The user tiers for Data Center platform start higher – if for the Server solution it was possible to buy products for 10 users then the minimal user tier for Data Center Jira and Confluence is 500 users (Jira Service Desk 50 agents).
Cloud – convenient solution for growing organizations
As a Cloud First company, Atlassian offers convenient and quick solutions to growing private sector enterprises; it is possible to join with Atlassian Cloud Free plan with a team up to 10 users/3 IT agents, whose data storage needs are covered with 2GB. SaaS solutioned Cloud platform is a great way to save from server and maintenance costs.
Atlassian reports the popularity of Cloud among their customers has grown 60% over the years. For organizations with delicate data, Cloud Enterprise plan offers an opportunity to choose the region for data residency: APAC (Singapore and Sydney), EU (Frankfurt and Dublin) or US (US east and west).
