Atlassian on-premise services may be on the way out.
Atlassian currently offers cloud-based programming as well as on-premise services that enable customers to install software on their own data centers.

Atlassian will cease operations for the following on-premise server products: Jira Software Server, Jira Core Server, Jira Service Desk Service, Confluence Server, Bitbucket Server, Crowd Server, Bamboo Server, Atlassian-built apps, and Atlassian Marketplace server apps.
New server license sales will stop Feb. 2, 2021, and the company will offer support and upgrades to current customers on those platforms until Feb. 2022. By Feb. 2024, support for all of its server products will end.
Does Atlassian own Trello?
One of Atlassian's most popular products is Trello, which enables teams to collaborate effectively and efficiently through boards that organize projects and tasks. Trello compares itself to a virtual “whiteboard, filled with sticky notes,” that provides space for attachments, data sources, documents, and collaboration among team members. Its biggest competitors are Asana and Monday.
Trello also has a “Trello for Slack” extension for users to integrate with the Slack messenger app. Users can add new Trello cards directly from Slack to avoid having to switch from one platform to the other.
What are the uses of Atlassian Bitbucket?
Bitbucket is Atlassian’s product for Git code management, with free unlimited private repositories. Bitbucket currently has integration with Trello and Jira. Teams use it to build, test, and deploy code. The Bitbucket server is among those slated to go away by 2024.
What are the uses of Atlassian Fisheye?
Atlassian Fisheye enables customers to search code and extract information. Browsing, searching, and reporting from data throughout your entire repository history is possible with Fisheye.
What are the uses of Atlassian Jira?
Jira Software is Atlassian’s flagship product, a customizable platform for teams to organize tasks and initiatives. Jira was originally designed for bug and issue tracking.
Some companies that currently use Jira products are Domino’s, Audi, and Carfax. Motley Fool says that Atlassian is prepared to assist customers in the transition away from on-premise services.
