Express edition is the entry-level, free database and is ideal for learning and building desktop and small server data-driven applications. It is the best choice for independent software vendors, developers, and hobbyists building client applications. If you need more advanced database features, SQL Server Express can be seamlessly upgraded to other higher end versions of SQL Server. SQL Server Express LocalDB, a lightweight version of Express that has all of its programmability features, yet runs in user mode and has a fast, zero-configuration installation and a short list of prerequisites.

SQL Server 2016 Express with Service Pack 1


Component Requirement
.NET Framework SQL Server 2016 RC1 and later require .NET Framework 4.6 for the Database Engine, Master Data Services, or Replication. SQL Server 2016 setup automatically installs .NET Framework. You can also manually install .NET Framework from Microsoft .NET Framework 4.6 (Web Installer) for Windows.
Network Software Supported operating systems for SQL Server 2016 have built-in network software. Named and default instances of a stand-alone installation support the following network protocols: Shared memory, Named Pipes, TCP/IP and VIA.

Note: Shared memory and VIA are not supported on failover clusters.

Also note that the VIA protocol is deprecated. This feature will be removed in a future version of Microsoft SQL Server. Avoid using this feature in new development work, and plan to modify applications that currently use this feature.
Hard Disk SQL Server 2016 requires a minimum of 6 GB of available hard-disk space.

Disk space requirements will vary with the SQL Server 2016 components you install. For more information, see Hard Disk Space Requirements later in this topic.
Drive A DVD drive, as appropriate, is required for installation from disc.
Monitor SQL Server 2016 requires Super-VGA (800x600) or higher resolution monitor.
Internet Internet functionality requires Internet access (fees may apply).

Note: Running SQL Server 2016 on a virtual machine will be slower than running natively because of the overhead of virtualization.
