After Slack announced its acquisition and discontinuation of Atlassian HipChat and Stride, HipChat users have voiced their concerns regarding the lack of self-managed options for team chat and collaboration, as well as some security concerns linked to Cloud versus on-prem options.


There is strong demand from our user community to accommodate the migration of Atlassian HipChat users to Rocket.Chat. In light of this, Rocket.Chat is offering a special Migration Bundle for HipChat Data Center users looking to migrate to its platform.This Migration Bundle includes:

  • Import assistance for HipChat Data Center users (a built-in feature in Rocket.Chat)
  • Discount on Rocket.Chat for early adopters of our Enterprise Bundle offer (includes Enterprise and Tech Support)

Contact us to learn more about the Migration Bundle and how it could work for your team as an alternative to HipChat or a move to Slack. Visit our dedicated Atlassian page for all the latest on our offering for migrating Atlassian customers.
