According to Q&A with Atlassian President Jay Simons, there are no immediate plans to create a server version of Trello
Q. 12. Are there timelines for Trello integrations with other Atlassian products? Is there going to be a Trello server version anytime soon?
Integrations are available now called Atlassian Power-Ups. We have no immediate plans to create a server version of Trello.
We would also need a server version.
My company is regulated by NERC CIP (energy industry) and putting certain information in the cloud without following CIP Standards (technical requirements which essentially federal law) is a violation and subject to regulatory actions and fines. The server(s) storing the information becomes a repository of the information and is(are) subject to these standards. As written, the standards make it extremely difficult to store information in the cloud. Minimally, we would need a satisfactory SOC 2 Type II audit report, confirmation that our information is encrypted in transit *and* at rest and that we hold the only key to that encrypted data, and that no unauthorized persons can access the data. Privacy controls are not enough. Authorized persons must undergo a satisfactory background check as well as take specific training for NERC CIP information handling.
An on-premise server version of Trello would be ideal to satisfy the NERC CIP standards.
@Michael Pryor, it seems like moving to cloud would introduce a whole host of other issues for an enterprise.
Besides the time cost of migrations, Atlassian's own pros-and-cons-of-cloud-vs-server page lays out a few good reasons, including:
Additionally, non-profit and academic institutions users would lose their (generous) discount.
I really love both products, and would love to integrate Trello further into my Atlassian workflow!
My company is working with different, regulated industries where a cloud solution simply doesen't cut in terms of contractual obligations, standards and other regulatory concerns that we are required to follow. Trello would only be viable for us if there was an on-premise version.
Hey Atlassian - love Trello!!
It's now 2020 and, whilst global Regulators in Financial Services are continually evolving their thinking with cloud, any cloud service provider must either prove their compliance with relevant regulatory circulars and provide the necessary controls to prevent e.g. downloading of applications (Data leakage issues), or provide an on-premise solution or they simply won't be compliant.
The challenge is that, working for a global Financial Services firm, Icannot appease just one or two regulators but must effectively appease all regulators in all jurisdictions in which we operate regardless of where the product is used in practice. Layer on strict controls of some regulators about the geography in which data is hosted and you get an idea of the problems we're facing.
I do understand if not providing a server version is a commercial decision to push people towards on-site JIRA as an Enterprise solution but if this isn't the case, then this must surely be worthy of consideration?
It would be great to get a comment from you on whether this is even on your roadmap or not.
If you had to thrive a new habit during a lockdown, what would it be? Trello
