Confluence Server and Data Center feature comparison
If you manage your own Confluence site (it's not hosted by Atlassian), you'll have either a Confluence Server or Confluence Data Center license. If we manage Confluence for you, you'll have a Confluence Cloud license.
Your Confluence license determines which features and infrastructure choices are available.
We want all teams to get the most out of Confluence, so the core features are available for everyone – including creating pages, working together, and organizing your work.
Here’s a summary of available features for Confluence Server and Confluence Data Center. If you’re interested in having Atlassian host and manage your products, see how a cloud plan compares on our Confluence features page.
