New Version Rights

New version rights, a major benefit of having active SA (Software Assurance) coverage on on-premises product licenses, provides the right to deploy new product versions that become generally available during the term of SA coverage (at no additional cost).

For perpetual licenses, rights to use certain types of recent versions persist if SA coverage is later dropped, whereas for subscription licenses, all rights to use the product ends when the subscription lapses.
