Database:

Airodis ships with SQL Server 2008 R2 Express, the free edition of the SQL Server that has certain limits imposed. See the table below for a comparison of the versions. The Express version is sufficient for small to medium sized operations but as the database grows it may have an impact on the speed of operation. There is no limitation imposed for the number of concurrent users on any of the versions.
