Hi Tousif,
The primary difference is that the attachments can only be stored in the database for clustered. When switching to standalone we can change the location to a file system but this is not required. Also, the connection to the database for clustered is set as a datasource in the server.xml file. This too can be chanegd when moving to standalone but is not required (the other optiob being ot establish a JDBC connection in the confluence.cfg.xml file. After that there are some tables used by clustering that will no longer be used in standalone mode but this too requires no action.

I hope this helps.
