Confluence vs SharePoint - search separate server


We are considering Confluence as a replacement of SharePoint. We have 7 Millions files for 700Gb of data with 1500 users. 

SharePoint recommend to have multi server with separate roles. How Confluence can manage as much data as we have only with one server ? I don't see any information about a topology with multiple server for Confluence.

Just wondering, maybe one server is enough...

Hi @Morgan LE BIHAN,

you can configure a Confluence cluster with Confluence Data Center.

More information is provided here:

There you can also find a link for contacting Atlassian Enterprise.

@Thomas Schlegel As I understand we need the Data center solution. But it's only for a Cloud version. Is there a solution for a On-premise version ?

@Morgan LE BIHAN Datacenter is for on-premise (server) only, not for cloud.
