License tier uses, scalability, and performance.

In addition to the features identified in the table below:

Base, Advanced, and Enterprise tiers
Are fully-functional instances of Vantage on VMware and allow you to upgrade deployed software.
Developer tier
Is a fully-functional instance of SQL Engine, and can be used for evaluation purposes such as proof of concept, development and testing, data validation, and as a sandbox for Vantage users. Developer tier does not, however, allow updating of deployed software.
There is no upgrade path to a later version of Developer. Upgrading requires a new installation, which results in data loss.
Developer tier (Preconfigured)
Is a simplified version of the Developer tier that allows you to quickly deploy SQL Engine by using the .ova template.
