Foundational Resources to Your Cloud Migration Journey

Migrating to the cloud is a journey, and whether you are migrating a large or a small set of data and users the common foundation is prior proper planning. Planning is crucial to the migration journey and solidifying a strategy before executing is a key element to the success of a migration as it would minimize the chances ro run into blocker later on in the journey.

To help prepare you for the migration Atlassian has built thorough documentation to prepare you for this ride which is dependant on your specific requirements!

  • Cloud Migration Center -this is the hub for all the things you need to know about cloud migration

  • Plan your cloud migration - this guide provides a high-level plan for migrating from Jira or Confluence Server or Data Center to the cloud. Before getting started, learn more about migrating to Atlassian's cloud products and check out our migration FAQs

  •  Compare cloud migration methods- A comparison between the methods available to move data from the server or Data Center to the cloud. The best approach will depend on the needs of your particular migration. Learn about the primary methods, along with the benefits, requirements, and limitations for each.

Another important assets are the Jira Pre-Migration Checklist and the Confluence Pre-Migration Checklist  as they include everything you need to do to ensure your data is ready to migrate. 

For app migration it is very important to know that none of the migration methods migrate app data. Here you can find the Atlassian Marketplace apps that are available in cloud with migration paths . There is also an Early Access Program to automate app migrations for Confluence and Jira.

You can also make use of the Free Cloud Migration Trial, We provide cloud migration trials that match your user tier (up to 10,000) and the length of your remaining server maintenance or Data Center subscription (up to 12 months) to help you evaluate and migrate to cloud over time—without disrupting your teams!!

Great article @Amna Elabbas !

I'll also give a soft plug for the bi-weekly cloud migrations demo for folks who are more visual learners, want to see a walkthrough of the process, or just want a chance for some live Q&A :)
