Confluence scaling


We are planning to upgrade our confluence platform up 10k users. What recommendations do you have for the hardware and nodes count to support so many users with satisfying productivity? Does standard confluence license support clustering in one data-center or even between two data-centers?


Best regards,

The Data Center license is different, and might be something to look at for 10K users.  

Data Center covers high availability setups (e.g. clustering, same data center), but not geographic redundancy or geographic load balancing (like a CDN).

Thank you! But could you please specify us the difference between the standard license and data-center license:

  • Both support 10k users;
  • Both have no any data size limitations;
  • Both support database clustering

What will be the user amount limit or data size limit that will require us to migrate the enterprise license.
