Refined’s CEO: The End of Life for Atlassian Server Is a Chance to Rethink Deployment

Announcing a new Refined Migration Center, plus a look at the hidden opportunity in the end of life for server.

With Atlassian’s end-of-life for server announcement last month, a lot of our server customers are busy planning their migration to data center or cloud.

Where you go depends on a number of factors, including the complexity of your deployment, security requirements, and more. I’m writing to let you know that, whether you move to data center or cloud, Refined is ready and waiting for you with apps for both environments.

To that end, recently we launched a new Migration Center. Built with Refined’s own site-builder (this is our eighth Refined site as a company; larger companies like Box have many more), is a one-stop resource for all the information you need to plan and execute your move to data center or cloud. 

You’ll find:

  • Migration instructions
  • Detailed feature comparisons along with known limitations 
  • FAQs
  • Product demos
  • A host of additional resources to help you get the most out of your migration

Are you getting the most value from your Atlassian migration?

One upside to the end of life for server: It gives you a chance to step back and reevaluate your deployment. 

For example, large companies with multiple Confluence server instances may look to consolidate instances on data center. Those who go that route can use Refined sites to replicate their previous multi-instance structure—without the added cost and admin burdens of managing separate instances.

User permissions, user-specific start pages, custom space layouts and other features allow you to segment users by department, team, location, and more. At the same time, Refined sites allow you to bring multiple Confluence use cases to life — you can have infinite documentation sites, knowledge bases, and intranets from a single data center instance.

(Read more about multi-site deployments here, and watch our site-building demo here.)
