Can I migrate from Cloud to Data Center instead of Server?





'Data Center' deployment uses the same application as single 'Server' deployment however the architecture you set up will be a bit different to allow for hot failover so I'd recommend doing the following:

  • Ensure compatibility of your current Cloud plugins with Server and Data Center through the Atlassian Marketplace. Each add-on will be listed and labeled for Server, Cloud, or Data Center compatibility.
  • Review all information listed under the "before you start" section in our Installing JIRA Data Center documentation. 
  • When migrating to Server (on-prem), we would recommend preparing your architecture according to Data Centers setup here but only setting up a single server (i.e. only one application node) to start:
  • When you confirm your single node setup is working, you can add nodes.

You need to use latest Server release of JIRA Software and Confluence for your applications on-prem.

To buy Data Center licenses you can go directly to our website:

To create trial licenses, you can go to your My Atlassian account and create them from there.
