Is there any way to use SQL Server 2019 Standard Edition for testing?.

Hello, I have been looking for a way to be able to use SQL Server 2019 Standard to verify that the project we are doing works correctly in that version, for now we are using the Evaluation version but this is equivalent to the Enterprise version.

@EnriqueMRamosS , why mandatory Standard? Use Evaluation Edition, even if it equals Enterprise Edition.

You can check if you use "by mistake" an Enterprise feature by querying

sys.dm_db_persisted_sku_features (Transact-SQL) - SQL Server | Microsoft Docs


Or you use the free Express Edition with it's limitations.
