I'm counting your voices! 

Let me know, who has already decided to switch from Server and who is still waiting (and why?).

I have two instances under my purview/control - one Server and one Cloud.

We will never migrate our Server to Cloud ... because Cloud has so many missing features and capability c.f. Server.

Server and Cloud used to have "the same" capability about 10 years ago ... but then they started "chopping the arms and legs off" Cloud editor  .. it was like the Black Knight in "Monty Python and the Holy Grail".
I was lucky enough to have a page template that worked as it used to but the editor is still so much less capable that we knew our Server Users would not be able to use Cloud the same way as they did in Server 

So until Data Center offers something for some specific use case we need, we stick with our Server.

But Cloud is not on our plans.

yes .. I know Server is no longer being supported (i.e. updated) .. but as the saying goes

"If it isn't broken, don't fix it!"

Don't get me wrong ... Cloud works .. but look very carefully in how your Users use your Server capabilities - some may not be affected and happy with Cloud ... others may be quite annoyed.

I have recommended my old company to stay on Server for as long as possible. The price of Data Center is at least double and they don't need it. They will eventually have to pay it or migrate to Cloud.

For 2000 users of Jira Software on Server the cost in 2020 was $60,000. They would have been paying $30,000 because of the 50% renewal cost. For Data Center at that time it would have been $52,000 (with no renewal discount).

In 2023, the cost for 2000 users on Cloud Premium is $164,000 (Standard is $109,000 with less features, and with very strict automation limits). For Data Center this is $120,000. 

This is the reality many businesses are facing. The jump from $30,000 to $164,000 is big jump, and Atlassian have been bumping the price of Server up to encourage businesses to migrate (25% price increase for 2023, 20% in 2022 and 15% in 2021). With those price increases the 2023 price taking them upto Feb 2024 will be approximately $51,000 renewal for 2023-2024 which is still half the price of the other offerings, so staying on Server is better for their bottom line.

We are actively planning the move to Cloud from Server.  This is prompted by requirements to deploy only applications and operating systems with support.  In other words, we have not choice but to migrate.  

So far, we have not found any issues that would stop us from completing it. As it is, some of our users are moving to other platforms and it may come to pass that Jira's use diminish to irrelevance.  For project managers, there are a lot of options available, including open source.  I for one find Jira unnecessarily complicated and expensive for what it does.
