Future-Proof Your Business by Phase Migrating From Jira Server to Cloud

Simplify Migration to Jira Cloud While Minimizing the Risk of Data Loss and Prolonged Downtimes.


Why Use Backbone for Migrating to Jira Cloud?


Moving your Jira instances from data center or server to Cloud can help you cut down IT infrastructure costs. It also leads to better security and reliability of operations and accelerates productivity. But the process is full of complexities and can turn into a long and confusing journey.

Solution A phased migration strategy, facilitated by Backbone Issue Sync for Jira, can help you circumvent the risks of a big-bang migration and facilitate an incident-free transition to the Cloud.

Migrate Jira Instances Without Any Data Losses

After using the Atlassian migration tool to move your Jira instance from server/data center to Cloud, you can use Backbone to keep your instances in sync. Backbone can help break the process into phases or segments so it’s easier to track and predict problems and thus avoid any major errors and consequent data loss. The modular migration approach also ensures that you can seamlessly move to another platform without ever disrupting your workflow.

Ease Your Users Onto Jira Cloud

Phased migration gives your users time to progressively adapt to the platform change. Since Backbone can keep Jira issues synced and updated on all linked instances, the users can keep working on the old instance until they feel comfortable moving to Jira Cloud. You can also set up as many synchronizations as needed to keep all of your projects up to date.

Migrate to Cloud While Maintaining Flexibility

You will find a link to the migrated Jira issue on Cloud on all server issues, making it easier to navigate between the two instances. In addition, all issue types, custom fields, and workflows can be mapped across instances, meaning you can either stick with the same workflows and fields or opt for something new.
