Atlassian will stop offering Server licenses and this is all you need to know.

With increasing Server and Data Center customers transitioning to cloud, Atlassian wants to ensure an impeccable cloud experience and is aligning its focus through some bold yet necessary changes.


As from the 2nd of February 2021, new licences for server products will be ceased. There will be a phasing out period spread over three years during which existing server licenses can still continue to purchase maintenance and support. However, the maintenance price for existing server licences will be increased. The self-managed enterprise edition, Data Center, will still be on offer and Atlassian is striving to facilitate its ease of use in combination with cloud - aiming for an improved and integrated administration experience of the two offerings.
