[u-u] redhat licensing / subscription

i have a project that requires an official RedHat installation, CENTOS won't cut it.

we have a dev/staging environment, as well as a production environment.

my understanding of RedHat licensing is that you need a subscription, which
enables access to the repositories (and support forums, etc).

when you fire up a server with RedHat, you need to associate that server with
a subscription, in order to enable access.

they seem to have a normal commercial subscription, as well as a developer's

i'm kinda envisioning this:

we set up a developer's subscription, and each server we bring up in the dev/staging environments would attach to that subscription.

in production, where will will only have 2-10 live servers, we will attach those
to the commercial subscription.

is that the way it works?

anyone actively using redhat subscriptions who can i can speak to and get clarity?

to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up,
totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming "Wow! What a Ride!"
