Is there any difference in functionality between Confluence server based and cloud based?

Johnny Brisbane Jun 11, 2015

Currently running a trial version on Confluence Cloud version with view to purchase server version for 50 users. The network on which Confluence will reside will have no connection to internet - are there any issue in regard to functionality I need to be aware of on a server based version with no internet connection?

Brilliant - thanks for the expeditious response!

Our IT guys will manage the upgrades etc. so that should not be a problem. What I was trying to confirm was in regard to Questions, Calendars etc. and the general user functionality there is no difference?

Nope, the end users won't see any difference. Except that Cloud will generally be a handful of versions ahead of what they've got.

There's two questions here.

First, on a Confluence with no internet access, you won't be able to automatically install addons and updates to addons (there is a manual option), and you'll have to copy and paste your licences into it instead of grabbing them automatically.

Secondly, Confluence Cloud and Server are slightly different products.  On the surface, they're the same, but Cloud is managed, so you don't have to run it yourself (upgrades, and system functions are handled by Atlassian), and you can only install a strictly limited list of addons into it.
