"Licensing SQL Server for non-production use"
SQL Server Developer EditionSQL Server 2019 Developer Edition is a fully featured version of SQL Server software—including all the features
and capabilities of Enterprise Edition—licensed for development, test and demonstration purposes only. SQL
Server Developer Edition may not be used in a production environment.
Any test data that was used for design,
development or test purposes must be removed prior to deploying the software for production use.
Note: A production environment is defined as an environment that is accessed by end-users of an application(such as an internet website) and that is used for more than gathering feedback or acceptance testing of that
application. Other scenarios that constitute production environments include:
• Environments that connect to a production database
• Environments that support disaster-recovery or backup for a production environment
• Environments that are used for production at least some of the time, such as a server that is rotated into production during peak periods of activity
