switch from jira server to cloud, how secure is my data in the cloud Edited

Unfortunately, we have to do this step in the next years

Important changes to our server and Data Center products
We’re making changes to our server and Data Center products, including the end of sale for new server licenses on February 2, 2021 and the end of support for server on February 2, 2024 

Atlassian products are designed to protect your users' privacy. We commit to meeting the highest bar for personal data privacy and support your organization in meeting data privacy obligations around the world like GDPR.

--> what, when I don't trust this?
I am the jira admin and I would be the one responsible if something happes with our company data (currently, the IT is responsible because they host our jira server and all the company internal network stuff).
I don't want to read all this privacy stuff and also I dont understand all of it.

We don't want to have our data in a cloud somewhere

Hi Alexander


one option if you would like to stay on premise would be to evaluate if switching to data center instead of server could be an approach (although this might come with an cost increase)


if you should choose the cloud hosting option, check for the different tiers and what they offer toward data residency

For the trust related topics (you mentioned already the privacy part), is the general starting point


All the best

I know it's not a happy situation to be in, you're not alone. 

While Atlassian has done tremendous amount of home work in moving to Cloud, is where you can get your concerns addressed in terms of all regulatory frameworks being followed, blah blah. But this option certainly needs to be run through your company's legal department as you as a techie cannot own responsibility for what happens in Cloud hosting.

However, in case it helps, here is a good starter guide <> to move to Data Center by @Rodney Nissen.  

I hope that helps.
