Please note that the Atlassian suite, including Jira and Confluence, will be migrated to a new host sometime later this month. It will be managed by Avant, a trusted Atlassian partner, at a Canadian hosting facility.

This is the first step towards ensuring that the suite is more actively managed and monitored, and is upgraded on a regular basis in the near future.

At this time, Avant is running some test migrations in preparation for a seamless move with minimal down-time during off hours.

We will keep you updated as we schedule specific dates.
