In 2020 Atlassian announced changes to its Server and Data Center offerings in order to sharpen its focus on cloud-based products.
Atlassian Announcement Summary
Atlassian stopped selling new Server products starting February 2nd, 2021, and will fully stop maintaining the Server products in February 2024.
As of February 15, 2022, there is also no way to upgrade or downgrade user tiers for the Server products or apps.
