Atlassian pricing updates

Featured Image

Over the past years, Atlassian has been highly committed to becoming a cloud-first company by assisting its customers in easing their way into the Atlassian Cloud. For instance, after the past price update, Atlassian reduced the self-hosted product offerings and provided customers with advantaged pricing plans to motivate clients to take the leap into the Cloud.

The price on these advantaged plans is scheduled to increase on February 15, 2022, as Atlassian currently brings advantaged prices closer to the list.

What are the most important upcoming changes after February 15, 2022?

  • Price increase for Data Center clients benefiting from advantaged pricing
  • Price increase for Server clients benefiting from advantaged pricing
  • End of user tier upgrades and downgrades for server
  • Discontinuation of any new feature development on server

How will the price of my licences increase?

The price of your licence will depend on the products you are subscribed to, which user tier you are and the date of purchase of your subscription.

What are the changes to server licences?

The sale of new server licences stopped on February 2, 2021. Therefore, after February 2, 2022, there will be no further development of features for server.

Although, customers have the option to renew their maintenance until February 2, 2024. The maintenance price for specific server products has also increased, ensuring ongoing platform security and support.

What are the changes on Data Center licences?

Data Center licences will also increase for subscriptions purchased before February 2, 2021. So if you bought your licence before this date, you should benefit from an advantaged price plan (less than Atlassian list prices) that will eventually rise to meet the new Atlassian list prices over time.

What are my options?

1. Seek advice from an Atlassian Solution Partner

First, you should look for expert advice that helps you find the best solution fitted to your company's needs. Suppose you are interested in discovering the options, risks and possibilities of Data Center or Cloud. In that case, we at DEMICON can guide you through.

There is no need to navigate alone through the process of migrating an instance. In our workshop, we analyse the risks and possibilities between Data Center and Cloud, helping you make the best decision for your business goals.

2. Migrate into the Cloud or Data Center

One of the best options we can recommend is moving to the Atlassian Cloud or Data Center. Since the discontinuation of server, Atlassian has worked on bringing the Cloud to the next level with hundreds of features and functionalities. Atlassian is currently developing 40 new features, making the Cloud one of the most efficient and safe options.

Many individuals are not sure of moving to the Cloud due to the "high price" of the monthly subscriptions. If we compare the monthly price of Cloud versus the payment of software licences, it might seem highly pricey at first glance. Still, if we look at the long term costs, on-premise installations are cost heavy and more challenging to manage, maintain and administrate.

Migrating to the Cloud is a massive hop that reduces infrastructure, platform and security risks to a minimum, increasing performance, decreasing downtime and freeing time for your IT teams to focus on the work that matters.

Although in some cases, depending on your instance and your requirements Data Center might be the best option, due to this it is recommended to get expert advice to choose a solution that fits your needs.
