In Q3, we continue to expect the in general server revenue expansion price to decline from Q2. That explained, with the close of new server license income and on-premises selling price adjustments effective February 2, 2021, we hope some server buyers will invest in extra licenses and early renew their routine maintenance contracts.

Membership earnings will be the main driver of progress. We hope to attain membership earnings expansion in the mid-30%s consistent with the mid-expression fiscal 2021 and fiscal 2022 targets articulated at Investor Working day.

Though the initial primary indicators are encouraging, migrations will have only a modest effects on fiscal 2021 revenue. We continue to count on this profits driver to make steadily above time. As shared at Investor Day, we anticipate 50 percent of our server clients will migrate in fiscal 2023 and beyond. It is really essential to note our assumption that medium and massive-sized shoppers, which have a bigger effect on revenue, will choose extra time to migrate than scaled-down prospects.
