What's the difference between trial and trial (subscription)

From the Microsoft documentation (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-platform/admin/trial-environments#frequently-asked-questions)

 

it says

 

  • Trial (standard): This is the type of trial environment that companies can use to allow users and department managers to try new features and quickly build low-code and no-code applications and processes. Organization (tenant) admins can enable all users to create trials, or only tenant admins. If allowed for users, any user from that organization who has a suitable license can create a 30-day trial environment. After 30 days, the environment is disabled and deleted.
  • Trial (subscription-based): This is the type of trial environment that companies can use to develop larger, multiuser and multiple-department solutions and perform proof-of-concept reviews. Tenant admins can add a trial (subscription-based) environment to their tenant, or new customers can sign up for a new tenant and become the Global admin. For new customers, an admin-managed subscription is created with a set number of licenses (usually 25); admins control which other users get licenses assigned to them. An admin-managed subscription has an end date that can be extended.

 

I'm still not 100% clear what this means. Does the Trial (subscription-based) environment type have 30 days expiry?

 

How is the subscription version used for "to develop larger, multiuser and multiple-department solutions and perform proof-of-concept review" ? What are the actual functional differences between subscription and standard?

Hi @diskdrive 

As far us I know, The trial (subscription-based) environment does not have an expiry

 

Ok and what's the difference between these two plans?
