If I just need basic subscription and hold a basic server for small office, is there any reason to pay $349 for a server subscription rather than pay $49 for a workstation license?

BTW: Redhat is a must have choice, so I can't use centos or any other alternatives.

With $349 you get support. With $49 you don't.
With the server subscription you get Red Hat server packages. If I'm right, $49 is for Red Hat desktop.

No real need to spend the extra money.  

The server version just has larger limits and wider support for various chipsets.

Hi Rick1i,

The server has packages which the workstation does not have. The packages on the server variant is available due to the role and needs of the server. If you have further questions, you may call up Red Hat support at 1-888-REDHAT-1
