Over the past several years, organizations have transitioned more of their tech stacks and tooling to the cloud. The majority of Flow customers are now in the cloud, so we are excited to announce that the future of Flow will be exclusively in the cloud. Our Flow Enterprise Server product is in the process of being sunsetted in favor of having customers use our Cloud SaaS offering.
As a Flow Cloud customer, you will benefit from immediate access to the latest features and product updates. Learn more about what’s been recently released in Flow Cloud.
Change can be difficult and will take time. If you are a Flow Enterprise Server customer, you will continue to have access to our Support and Success teams until January 1, 2024. We want to help you migrate to the cloud so you can unlock even more benefits with Flow. The release date of our final Flow Enterprise Server version with new Flow application functionality is the first week of July, 2022.
Note: In October 2023, new major version 2023.3.1 was released. This release does not introduce any new features to the Flow application. Learn more about Flow Enterprise Server 2023.3.1.
Our cloud product is easier to set up and maintain, and you can leverage our reliable and secure cloud infrastructure to eliminate hardware costs and server requirements. This will save you both time and money.
Please review the information in this article about the transition. Then, reach out to us if you still have questions or concerns. This article will be updated with additional information as it becomes available.
There are three key dates for you to remember in this process.
- First week of July, 2022—Final Flow Enterprise Server Release: July will mark our final major Flow Enterprise Server release and will bring the server application closer to parity with our cloud application. After this, there will be no additional development aside from patches for critical bug fixes or security concerns.
- We added several exciting updates in the 2022.2.1 release, and with the final feature release of 2022.3.1, all of the following features are available for Flow Enterprise Server customers:
- Jan. 1, 2024—End of Support: We’re here for you. You will still have access to our Support and Success teams up until this date. We will help resolve questions or issues as they arise so you can continue to benefit from Flow.
- Jan. 1, 2024—End of Life: After this date, you will no longer be able to access the Flow application if you are using Flow Enterprise Server. You will also no longer have access to our Support or Success teams.
Migrating to the cloud
Migrating to the cloud involves setting up your SSO configuration, merging your users, configuring your roles, and ingesting your data. This process is functionally the same as for your Enterprise Server configuration.
The time it will take to ingest your data and configure your organization is dependent on the size of your data, including the number and size of your repositories.
As always, our teams are dedicated to your success. Support, Customer Success, and Professional Services will be by your side. The Professional Services team will help your organization navigate this transition as you join us in the cloud.
