I'm proposing a new Environment architecture to my organization, that eventually help in setting up the Proper CI/CD setup.
Currently, they have 4 Sitecore licence, so they used each one for QA, UAT, CM and Prod CD.
In contrast i'm proposing to have separate CM and CD for each environment. For example, QA will have its own CM and CD, Like wise, UAT and Prod will have their own CM and CD. But to implement this, we may have to procure more Sitecore licence and my Organization is not ready to spend money for new licenses.
My question is, Can we use the Development license for non production environment? If required, i can restrict access of non production environment to outside world.
I'm open for any other suggestion where i can restrict licensing cost. Your help is appreciated.
