Cloud Migration Trials are available for Bitbucket Cloud!

We are excited to announce that cloud migration trials (CMTs) are now generally available for new Bitbucket Cloud workspaces.

Cloud migration trials enable you to use the full functionality of Bitbucket Cloud during an extended trial period, so that you can plan and execute your migration from Data Center.

Bitbucket Cloud has been focused on building for enterprise scale, security, and performance. Over the past year, we’ve launched several features like Unified User Management, custom merge checks, and Forge. And now, with the launch of cloud migration trials, we’re enabling enterprises to evaluate the latest that Bitbucket Cloud has to offer. Enterprises can use CMTs to create proof of concepts, run test migrations, and migrate their data to cloud.

Cloud migration trials are being offered to all Data Center customers. For more on eligibility and trial length refer to the following support document: Cloud migration trials for Data Center customers.
