Multi-year subscription

Unlike cloud subscriptions, Visual Studio standard MSDN subscriptions (VL) require a commitment of 24- or 36-months under Volume Licensing. The licence becomes perpetual and can be cost-effectively renewed. Visual Studio standard MSDN subscriptions (VL) not only offer access to the latest versions of much of Microsoft’s software catalogue, but also support for previous versions for those working in environments that do not use the latest releases.
