Cloud subscriptions vs Standard subscriptions RRS feed

  • Question

  • Ok.  I think I get this now.

    Standard subscription is kind of like when you buy Office 2016.  You own it.  VS you have to renew; Office, you're stuck with until you purchase the next best version.  When/if it ever comes.

    Cloud is a lot like O365; you rent it.

    Now, this is where I get confused.  When it gets to the keys of say, Windows, SQL Server, etc.; are those keys "rental" like O365, or are they still regular keys like you get with the standard version?

    PS.  I've read this page, , so much; I think I know it by heart.  :)
