In this blog post , let’s find out few the limitations of SQL Server Express Edition.

What are the Limitations of SQL Server Express Edition ?

The Express Edition of the SQL Server works great for most of the scenarios like the higher version of SQL Server but some of the limitations include

  • Maximum memory utilized by SQL Server Database Engine is 1GB .
  • Maximum size of the each relational database is 10 GB.
  • No SQL Profiler
  • Dedicated admin connection under trace flag
  • Single CPU (prior to 2008 R2 Express).
  • Maximum number of SQL Server Express instances = 16 on a machine.
