The world is a crazy place these days. I hope, first and foremost, all who are reading this blog--and their families and team members--are safe and healthy!
As most people are aware, due to COVID-19, Atlassian canceled their annual Summit Conference & Expo and went for a virtual event instead. During Remote Summit 2020, Atlassian announced the exciting new features and products they're debuting in 2020. One of the most exciting announcements (in my opinion) is the release of Atlassian’s Enterprise Cloud offering (yet to fully be released).
This new plan supports unlimited users, enhanced security capabilities, governance, data privacy and administration, 99.95% uptime SLA, and the highest priority support from Atlassian. All those fancy words sound like things people are interested in, however, the reason this is the most exciting announcement for me, is the ability to (FINALLY) have a sandbox environment with a Cloud deployment option! This comes just one year after Atlassian’s push to be a Cloud First organization. The Solutions Partners have been LOUD in the gap of services for Cloud. We want to help Atlassian really hear our customers, and what they are looking for in the ecosystem. Our cries have been heard!!
Now, while I believe this feature should exist on all levels of Atlassian’s Cloud products, I am very happy to see a sandbox environment existing at all! I am really looking forward to all the incredible features Atlassian Cloud will be released with next.
