Server support ends in

less than 30 days

As of February 15, 2024, technical support, security updates, and bug fixes for Server products have ended. If you're using unsupported Server products, we strongly recommend migrating to Cloud or upgrading to Data Center to ensure your business remains secure.

Frequently asked questions

My Server products are now unsupported, what are my options? Copy link to heading Copied! Show

We understand staying supported is a top priority. You have two options to move to a supported platform: Migrate to Cloud or upgrade to Data Center. Learn more about your options and how to take the next step.

How much does it cost to migrate to Cloud? Copy link to heading Copied! Show

To calculate and compare your costs, use our personalized calculator. To assess the costs of moving the apps and integrations from your Server products, refer to our Cloud migration guide.

How does the Cloud migration trial work? Copy link to heading Copied! Show

The Cloud migration trial is fully functional, so you can use it just as you’d use any Cloud site to explore features and test your migration. Unlike our standard 7-day trials, your Cloud migration trial matches the remaining duration of your Data Center subscription.

Still on Server? We offer 60-day free Cloud migration trials for Server customers with expired maintenance.

When migrating to our Cloud products, you’ll get enhanced security and reliability, more innovative new features, and simplified administration. Learn more about how Cloud can help bring value to your team.

Valuable time for users and admins

“Our on-premise solution had a lot of firewalls and networking to traverse, so whenever we had a new integration, the API would break. With the cloud, we can turn up APIs much quicker and deliver much faster.”
