Microsoft SQL Server 2014 Express edition has a database size limit to 10GB. Now, is that just for a single instance or the overall size that the edition will allow? Or does that means that I can have as many databases using the edition provided each database is less than 10GB?
From Express Edition:
SQL Server Express includes 10GB of storage per database
Maximum relational database size: 10 GB
This latter reference makes it clearer that the 10GB limit per database is applied to relational data, so it excludes log files* as well as
FILESTREAM and FileTable data (both supported in Express Edition).
