Differences between Jira and Confluence server and cloud


Learn the high-level feature and functionality differences between server and cloud.

Important changes to our server and Data Center products

We’re making changes to our server and Data Center products, including the end of sale for new server licenses on February 2, 2021 and the end of support for server on February 2, 2024. Learn what this means for you

At Atlassian, we offer two hosting options for our products: cloud, and self-managed (server and Data Center).

While our products provide the same benefits – planning, tracking, collaboration, code repository management, and more – deployment options do differ in features, functionality, and user interface.

Understanding and communicating these differences is essential to planning a successful migration, setting expectations for your stakeholders and users, and landing happily in cloud.

At a high level, customers choose to move from self-managed to cloud because our cloud products enable them to move faster, deliver more value, grow with confidence, and future-proof their teams. There can also be cost savings, since hosting and maintaining on-premises applications can be time and resource-intensive.
