Why it pays off to move to the Atlassian Cloud now

Are you thinking about running your Atlassian applications in the cloud? We accompany you on your “Journey to Cloud” with our professional service and make the transition to the Atlassian Cloud manageable, plannable and reliably implementable. At this point we will inform you about the end of support for Atlassian servers and what opportunities and licensing options this presents for you.

The real cost of cloud vs. on-premises

Cloud vs. On-Premises

When companies move from on-premises to cloud, there are numerous advantages – including scalability or high availability. But what about on the cost side? The answer may come as a surprise. Gartner, for example, estimates that a migration to the cloud can bring as much as 55 percent cost savings in the long run.

Timeline to End-Of-Life for Atlassian Servers

Timeline End-Of-Life Atlassian Server

Support for Atlassian Server products ends on February 15, 2024. However, you can continue to enjoy all the benefits of Atlassian products by migrating to the cloud or data center. Updates on the latest features of Atlassian products in the cloud are summarized in a roadmap here.

Special licensing options for the Atlassian Cloud

Annual and monthly payment model

Think Big, Start Small: Get started with a small team using Monthly Cloud. Pay initially only for active users in the cloud and move directly into an annual payment after migration, rebuild.

In addition, catworkx gives you the option to pay (for the use of the cloud) in euros. This applies to both the monthly and the annual variant.

From a user tier of 26 users (min. 500 USD monthly), there is an option to receive a monthly invoice – per active user in the cloud. The advantage is that customers who have 110 users, for example, do not have to buy 200 users in the Annual Plan and do not have to pay for 90 users even though they do not exist.

Loyalty Discount

The Cloud Loyalty Discount is an incentive for companies to migrate to the cloud. Here you will be granted various discounts for new purchases, renewals or upgrades. The Loyalty Discount is a credit – always equal to the new/upgrade price.

Until June 30, 2022
Server license purchased before February 02, 2021
Maintenance still running for at least 30 days
With 1001+ users 40% discount on the current cloud list price

From 01 July 2022 – until 30 June 2023
Server license purchased before February 02, 2021
Maintenance still running for at least 30 days
For 1001+ users, 20% off the current cloud list price.
If less than 1001 users, the discount is cancelled

The user scales per product always apply. Conclusion and thus securing of the loyalty discount for 12 and 24 months possible.

Dual Licensing

Dual Licensing ensures that you do not incur duplicate costs during the migration phase and do not have to pay for the renewal of the server licenses in addition. In this respect, once you have purchased the cloud licenses, you will receive a 100% discount on up to a 12-month renewal of the on-premises licenses.

  • Buy annual subscription for cloud and continue server/data center with maintenance for 12 months in parallel and
    use free of charge

Note: Valid only for Atlassian customers with 1001+ users. Required apps are still chargeable on both instances. A renewal of the Server/Data Center licenses afterwards is no longer possible!
