If I have a 100 user licence for my production confluence server, what sort of licence do I need for a cold-failover server ?
Do I need another 100 user licence ?
I have looked at the FAQ and in the documentation, I was wondering if I could use a development licence to cover that ?
Yes, you can use a development license to cover a cold-failover server - http://www.atlassian.com/licensing/purchase-licensing#licensing-9
"Developer licenses can also be used for non-production installations of our software deployed on a cold stand-by server."
I've used developer licenses for cold standby servers in the past and haven't run into any technical or licensing issues.
Hope that helps?
On the topic of failover: Atlassian has just released a dedicated best practice guide for High Availability. It covers a cold failover scenario and includes implementation details on reverse proxying, monitoring, replication and failover mechanisms:
