It's written here that 'The provided images are for evaluation only. Please contact us for production and/or custom Windows Cloud Images.' I'm curious what the difference between production and evaluation images is. What benefits production Windows Cloud Images will give me?

Microsoft gave us (Cloudbase Solutions) the permission to distribute Windows images for evaluation only (see the license that needs to be accepted before accessing the download page).

If you want to use Windows images in an OpenStack cloud for any purpose which is not evaluation, you need to build your own images. To simplify this process, we offer a service in which we build fully tested and updated Windows images on behalf of our customers, releasing updated versions every month.
