Hi Devendar,

Updating Bamboo server to Bamboo DC is simple. 

To upgrade from Bamboo Server to Bamboo Data Center:

1> In the upper-right corner of the screen, select
Administration bamboo administration icon > Overview.
2> Under System, select License details.
3> Enter your Bamboo Data Center license key.
4> Select Save new license.

Depending on whether you actually want to use any of the specific Bamboo Data Center (DC) features, and your current Bamboo Server version, it might not take any time at all, because you can just drop in a Bamboo Data Center license to an existing Bamboo Server installation and continue working without a restart even, see the Atlassian team's answer to Do you not offer the Bamboo server version download?  (semantically your Bamboo version should be >= release 8.0, but that's not enforced: we have customers who are seemingly using DC licenses with Bamboo 6.x without issues [1]).

  • That's also a good approach to address the upcoming Atlassian Server EOL on February 15, 2024 specifically to Bamboo btw.: If you still want to get upgrades, maintenance, and support afterwards, you can simply acquire a Data Center license and are good to go.

As for Bamboo Data Center pricing, IIRC licenses cost even slightly less than the equivalent (former) new Server licenses, though you have to pay the same amount for subsequent renewals, resulting in an overall cost increase for the same number of agents.

[1] Please note that this is just a personal observation and not in any way official advise, so Atlassian might consider this a violation of their terms and/or start enforcing DC license requirements at any time!
