Q7740120: Is there any performance difference between MS SQL Server and MS SQL Server Express Edition?

MS SQL Server is faster than MS SQL Server Express Edition and can handle more records. It is strongly recommended to migrate your statistical database to either MS SQL Server or MS SQL Server Express Edition to boost the performance of the reporting and graphing tools.

MS SQL Server provides more robust performance optimization mechanisms, such as query optimization, indexing options, and query execution plans conmpared to MS SQL Server Compact Edition. These features allow SQL Server to handle complex queries and large datasets more efficiently. SQL CE, being a compact edition, has limited optimization capabilities.

MS SQL Server Compact Edition can store only a limited number of records; The maximum size for a SQL CE database is only 4 gigabytes (GB), where MS SQL Server an MySQL database can store a few terrabytes or more, depending on the version of the database.
