As of February 2021, Atlassian will end new server license sales and will implement new prices for server renewals and upgrades. The company will also end support for all server products in 2024 – see timeline below.

For customers who can’t or don’t want to make the cloud migration, Atlassian will continue to offer its self-managed Atlassian Data Center, which will receive updates to make it easier to use the cloud and Data Center products together. Data Center will be upgraded with new native apps and Atlassian will throw in priority support for most user tiers. Data Center subscription pricing will also update on February 2.


The majority of Atlassian’s customers are already benefitting from the advantages of cloud, like streamlined administration, instant scalability, and quicker time to value. In fact, more than 90 percent start with Atlassian cloud products, with more server customers making the switch every day. In order to move faster and sharpen their focus as a cloud-first company, Atlassian will change their offerings to server and Data Center.
