Atlassian has launched its most advanced cloud offering to date: Atlassian Cloud Enterprise for Jira Software, Confluence, and Jira Service Management.

Specifically designed to “meet the needs of [Atlassian’s] enterprise customers,” it’s designed to  provide users with improved scalability, security, and governance controls to help standardize various Jira Software, Confluence, and Jira Service Management deployments on a purpose-built cloud platform.

Cloud Enterprise offers five new capabilities to address the “core needs” of enterprise customers. These include global scale, where customers are given the ability to not only standardize on one cloud platform that can scale on demand, but also set up multiple instances to support specific team needs; a 99.95% SLA guarantee; and a dedicated support team and enterprise-grade security and compliance to ensure safe, convenient access to Atlassian cloud products on any device while  meeting data privacy requirements across the globe.

Customers will also get more powerful governance controls, allowing them to streamline user management more efficiently while gaining faster access to innovative new features such as “smarts” capabilities. The continued partnership between Atlassian and its Marketplace partners should also allow Cloud Enterprise users to meet enterprise needs via a growing list of apps and integrations.

Bala Venkatrao, head of product, Enterprise Cloud at Atlassian, said that while most Atlassian products are often deployed first by individual developers or teams, they usually start to proliferate once IT leaders see the company-wide uses for Atlassian’s platforms.

He said CIOs want control over who’s using what, so the need for better visibility across the enterprise was one a driving force behind the Cloud Enterprise edition.
