Veeam is introducing a new database platform – PostgreSQL v14. Some of the reasons for doing so is first and foremost, like SQL Express, it’s free. But, from a use and scalability perspective, it has no size limit or compute restrictions, and has improved performance over SQL Express. SQL Express will still be an usable option if it’s your preference. PostgreSQL is only going to be in VBR and Enterprise Manager (EM) initially.
SQL Express limitations
- 10 GB maximum database size
- 4 cores maximum
- 1 MB buffer cache
SQL Standard / Enterprise Edition
- Too high costs
- No database size or compute restrictions
- Proven in other Veeam Products
