Confluence Data Center documentation

Data Center is our self-managed edition of Confluence built for enterprises. It provides the deployment flexibility and administrative control you need to manage mission-critical Confluence sites. Learn more about Confluence Data Center on our website.

Data Center architecture

You can deploy Confluence Data Center in two ways.

Non-clustered (single node)

Run the Confluence Data Center application on a single server. (Available for Confluence 7.2 and later).

This allows you to take advantage of Data Center-only features without adding to your infrastructure.

Learn more about Data Center features.


Run Confluence Data Center in a cluster with multiple application nodes, and a load balancer to direct traffic.

Clustering is designed for large, or mission-critical, Confluence sites, allowing you to provide high availability, and maintain performance as you scale.
