Do we have to use a server version of Confluence to let access our partners without paying for them ?

This question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: Add, edit and remove users

We have Confluence in the cloud and have partners who need to get access to private pages. Do we have any other solution rather than installing a server version and manage access by ourself ? In fact, we are also paying for partners in the server version. At least, it is cheaper.

If it's only read access that they require, then it might be easier/cheaper to use the Instant Websites addon: and then figure out how to hide those pages behind a login.

Even people that just read content are users of the system. In Atlassian's model, yes, they count as paid users. Wether that be in Server or Cloud. If the cost of running and administering your own Server instance is less than the cost of paying for the extra users then you can migrate your data across.
