What should be the technical considerations while shifting from Mattermost Community to E20 version?

Dear Team ,

Currently we have deployed Mattermost Community version 5.22.2 on AWS Platform . We are planning to shift Mattermost Community version to Mattermost E20 latest version. We are having following queries -

  1. How can we upgrade from version 5.22.2 to latest MM version ?
  2. How we can deploy E20 Licenses to existing community version of MM ?
  3. We are planning to have one instance which will serve as a staging / testing server . It will be VMWare ESXi VM hosted on physical server (Other than AWS hosted instance) , How we can plan for it ?
  4. If we wish to Mattermost docker images , how we can do it ? What will be the advantages of using a docker image over tradition VM Deployments as described above ? If it would have more advantages how we can plan accordingly to deploy mattermost as a docker image rather than hosting a VM traditionally for Mattermost application server as described in above stages .

Thank you .
Best Regards ,
