Server to cloud migration guide

Use our step-by-step migration guide for resources and best practices to ensure a successful move to cloud


Welcome to the server to cloud migration guide and congrats on taking your first step towards cloud! As part of the Atlassian Migration Program (AMP), we’re here to help you navigate your migration journey by splitting it up into 6 digestible phases. While this guide follows a structure, we know that a move to cloud isn’t always linear and conversations with stakeholders happen out of order. Feel free to flip back and forth between phases, revisit sections as many times as you need, or follow it from beginning to end as your team sees fit.

How we support cloud migrations

You may be asking yourself, “how does the actual migration not even happen until phase 5?!” We’ve migrated thousands of customers, and know that the investment in upfront planning, research, and preparation are key to a smooth (and faster) transition to cloud. If you’re feeling overwhelmed, we get it. A migration is a big transformation, but our resources, tools, and migrations support team are here to answer your questions and offer you guidance whenever you need it.

While most teams can manage the migration on their own, we recommend customers migrating over 1,000 users to contact us directly for additional guidance and support.

Now let’s get going - onwards!
