As Atlassian phases out its Server deployment method, they are easing the transition to Data Center for nonprofit organizations, teachers, and students. Beginning February 2, 2021, Atlassian is introducing Community and Classroom licenses for its Data Center deployment method. The licenses are FREE to qualifying customers, and once licensed, the discount extends to Data Center versions of Marketplace apps—they will also be free.
Atlassian will continue to offer Community and Classroom licenses for its Cloud deployment method at the current 75% discount. The discount also applies to Marketplace apps.
Have questions? We thought you might, so we’ve put together a brief Q&A to clarify things...
Community licenses are for nonprofit organizations and Classroom licenses are for teachers and students to use in educational settings. Classroom licenses cannot be used for administrative purposes or for anything outside of the classroom, but Atlassian does offer a generous Academic discount, as well.
