  2. What are the differences between server pricing and Subscriptions and add-ons cost per year
  3. If my application is just installing SQL 2019 server on a workstation for proof of concert and the client is the same workstation itself. Do i get one server license + CAL license? 4. Do I need to pay for the yearly subscription even though I purchased server license + CAL license?
