  • Skype for Business has both a cloud-version and an on-premise version.
    The cloud version is called Skype for Business, the on-premise version is called Skype for Business Server.

    The on-premise version has a really simple edition-model:

    Standard and Enterprise where standard lacks the following functionality:
    - Desktop, application and whiteboard sharing
    - Group audio and HD video calling (3 or more)
    - Create and manage persistent chat room 
    - Conference Attendee Experience (things like joining a scheduled meeting)
    - Presenter Experience (sharing powerpoint presentations)
    - It has a maximum of 100 users in a conference instead of 250

    All the cloud versions have the above functionality.
    The difference is mostly about the CloudPBX functionality and the possibility to dial into a meeting.
    For more information about these plans, look at: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/skype-for-business-online-service-description.aspx?f=255&MSPPError=-2147217396      

    It is a lot clearer than the plan overview on the Office 365 website.
