Atlassian is making a major update to its cloud platform to improve choice and security for the customers.
Having more than 150k customers globally, Atlassian is a leading provider of enterprise productivity software. The main products of Atlassian include Jira, Confluence, Trello, HipChat, to name a few.
The company is now unveiling new premium plans for its cloud products which will come with advanced features and support. New free plans are also coming for Jira Software, Confluence, Jira Service Desk, and Jira Core.
“It’s clear that our customers see their future in the cloud. And they continue to choose Atlassian as their trusted partner. In fact, more than 90 percent of our new customers start with one of our cloud products,” wrote Scott Farquhar, co-founder and co-CEO of Atlassian, in a blog post.
The new plans for Atlassian cloud products include Cloud Premium for Jira Software and Confluence, free plans for Jira Software, Confluence, Jira Service Desk, and Jira Core, as well as discounted cloud pricing for academic and non-profit customers.
Cloud Premium was launched last month which is now available for Jira Software and Confluence. It will soon come to Jira Service Desk as well. This plan will provide scalability, advanced features, unlimited storage, premium support, and high uptime SLA.

Free plans for Jira Software, Confluence, Jira Service Desk, and Jira Core will be available in the coming months. These plans are aimed to provide a set of key capabilities for team collaboration to small businesses.
For eligible academic organizations, Atlassian will offer its services at a 50% discount, while non-profits get a 75% discount.
Along with these, Atlassian is also rolling out security and data privacy upgrades. The cloud products will now have data residency for customers demanding greater control over the location of their data. Enterprises will be able to customize product access with custom domains, and encrypt data at rest and in transit. This will help in protecting unauthorized access.
Furthermore, the new Atlassian Trust Center will provide enterprises latest security, privacy and compliance roadmap for their products and services.
“For more than a decade we have been providing world-class cloud software, and this major platform update reaffirms our focus on the cloud and our future strategy,” concluded Scott.
“The changes will also improve the transition to cloud, and provide better data control and security.”
