Welcome to the Atlassian Community!!!
When we talked about difference between Cloud/Server/DC mainly core differences are:
Atlassian Cloud allows you to run Jira, Confluence, Bitbucket, and other software while Atlassian hosts and runs your Jira deployment. In addition to the standard benefits that come with any quality cloud hosting service, like scalability and reliability, Atlassian Cloud offers the convenience of a quickly available Jira instance that requires only minimal setup. You can also take advantage of automatic updates to your Atlassian products.
Both Atlassian Server and Data Center let you host Atlassian’s products on your own infrastructure or by using a third party cloud provider. Running and maintaining Atlassian software yourself does require more work — and technical expertise — than using Atlassian Cloud, but it provides control over all aspects of your deployment, from updates to security. In addition, depending on your setup, these options may perform better than Cloud.
As Atlassian Server has been deprecated as of February 2, 2021, and new licenses are no longer sold, Data Center is now the only option for organizations who are new to the Atlassian ecosystem. Thankfully, Atlassian Data Center provides superior security, customizability, and reliability compared to Server, though at a higher cost. Data Center is the most performant, robust option available, and it can meet the needs of even the largest enterprises.
Hi @Raghavarapu ,
Thanks for posting and welcome to the community.
I think you need to understand this from Atlassian Product point of view and no only Jira.
If you want to understand Atlassian cloud so simple terms it's a SaaS, preferred choice for customers who tiered price solution based on say no of users and usage.
Please go through this blog published last year for understanding the difference between server and data center - https://www.atlassian.com/blog/jira-software/server-vs-data-center-whats-right. In simple terms data center was created keeping in mind enterprise along with NFRs to meet organisations operating at scale.
Please check and let me know if that helps.
