Migration to "on demand" hosting

Hello -

We originally purchased a 100-user license for Confluence Hosted. In looking at the new on demand hosting, it appears that the licensing is now less expensive. For the same $5000 we invested for 1 year of 100 users, I could now have up to 500 users. Is this accurate? If so, how can I migrate to this new license structure? We are starting a project right now that requires me to add a lot of new users, so this would certainly help.

I would recommend checking out: https://www.atlassian.com/licensing/ondemand-faq-existing-customers

so you have a full picture of everything that is going on. The time-line has been pushed back a bit, so if you are looking to add new users in the near future, you will need to do so under your current Confluence Hosted setup. If you decide to go with OnDemand and 'opt-in', your instance will be migrated early next year to the OnDemand platform.

In the meantime, you may want to sign-up for a free trial of OnDemand and 'kick the tires' as OnDemand is going to be a bit different than your current Confluence Hosted experience (especially if you are not currently running Confluence 4.0).

Well there's two ways to look at it:

1) You can get support extended for your existing hosted solution, for a lot less than 5k$ but its still 100 users.

2) If you go hosted, 500 users would be 6k$/year, and the server costs, updates, costs of labor etc. would be handled by Atlassian:

This is assuming you don't have any add-ons like GreenHopper, Gliffy, etc. Putting GreenHopper on it brings it up to 9k$/year.
