Your Atlassian Cloud Migration Reality Check
5 Steps Toward an Expert Migration
Migrating your Atlassian apps from on-prem to the cloud can be challenging, but with a little expert advice you’ll be able to make the move without any missteps.
Understand the Power (and Limits) of Automated Tools
While Atlassian offers automated migration tools to assist in making your move to the cloud easier, they don’t completely replace manual efforts. Before kicking off a migration, get to know what items automated tools can and can’t address.
Test Your Migration in a Non-Production Environment
On-prem data centers are accustomed to having a standard test environment. To ensure unexpected errors don’t impact the instances, plan to create a test environment in the cloud insulated from the production platform to check your Atlassian stack prior to cutover.
Dig Into Your Data with Rigorous Auditing of On-Prem Instances
IT teams who really know their data recognize how much it grows over time, and how many integrations are added, as well. A thorough examination of everything currently residing on-prem can reveal which elements should be moved, kept in place, or archived to achieve an efficient migration.
Prioritize Your Third-Party Apps, They Can Be a “Mixed Bag” for Migrations
Not all 3rd party apps should be moved to the cloud – particularly those that overlap, aren’t in use, or aren’t fully supported. Consult vendors on cloud-readiness and talk to business users about utilization before deciding which apps can and should join the migration.
Get On Top of the Ways Life Will Be Different in the Cloud
While Atlassian instances in the cloud deliver greater simplicity, economy, and flexibility, they can also behave differently than they did on-prem. From the API set to server maintenance to log access capabilities, understanding the differences in advance can ensure your staff is ready to manage your apps as soon as your migration completes.
