  • Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Express edition has a database size limit to 4GB
  • Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Express edition has a database size limit to 4GB
  • Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 Express edition has a database size limit to 10GB
  • Microsoft SQL Server 2012 Express edition has a database size limit to 10GB
  • Microsoft SQL Server 2014 Express edition has a database size limit to 10GB

Orion will alert you when you approach these limits.
