When to use cloud to cloud migrations

Hello everyone! Last month we hosted our annual Team event and welcomed customers from around the world (in-person and virtually) to the ultimate teamwork experience and Atlassian’s flagship conference, Team ‘22. If you missed the event or need a refresher, we’ve put together two recaps - one for anyone considering a cloud migration and another for those already on Cloud and interested in deeper product usage.

In addition to the incredible product announcements and customer stories shared at Team, we also had several conversations with customers asking us to make the management of their instances easier, specifically data migration. Many were excited to hear that we actually offer cloud-to-cloud migration (C2C) tooling for Jira Software. While this feature is currently in Beta, we've seen customers of all sizes finding the tool a stable and quick way to port their data between cloud sites to address:

  • Mergers and acquisitions - new teams may join your organization or you may want to continue to administer those teams separately, with cloud to cloud migrations, you can pick and choose what data moves over and what stays the same

  • Performance and scale - as the number of users grows from 1,000 to 50,000 what was once easy to organize in one instance may be more efficient to split up by department or project, allowing each team the autonomy to create their own workflows

  • Data segregation and security - when using contractors or external vendors, move the data they need into a new instance, while keeping the rest of your data, especially sensitive data, secure behind different layers of authentication

  • Moving to Enterprise - unlock access to unlimited sites and shift your strategy from creating environments based on administrative ease to what's meaningful for each team

These are just a few examples of how customers are using our cloud-to-cloud migration tooling. In the rare case that customers would like to use this tooling for testing, we recommend using Sandboxes instead. A sandbox is an isolated environment where you can test and experiment before making changes to production and is available to customers on our Premium and Enterprise plans.

If you have any questions, please comment below. We’re continuing the make improvements to this space all the time! Keep track of these changes in our roadmap.

Hi @Swarna Mehta 

Thanks for sharing this

Is testing a "rare case"?

I actually like the idea of regularly performing C2C migrations to copy parts of a production environment to a Sandbox. 🙌

Hi @Swarna Mehta , there is an extra bracket at the end of the link for the Cloud roadmap that makes it break. Please can you correct this? Cloud Roadmap | Atlassian Thanks!
