MSSQL vs SQLite: What are the differences?

Developers describe MSSQL as "It is an enterprise-level database system that is very popular for Windows web servers". It is capable of storing any type of data that you want. It will let you quickly store and retrieve information and multiple web site visitors can use it at one time. On the other hand, SQLite is detailed as "A software library that implements a self-contained, serverless, zero-configuration, transactional SQL database engine". SQLite is an embedded SQL database engine. Unlike most other SQL databases, SQLite does not have a separate server process. SQLite reads and writes directly to ordinary disk files. A complete SQL database with multiple tables, indices, triggers, and views, is contained in a single disk file.

MSSQL and SQLite belong to "Databases" category of the tech stack.

Typeform, Intuit, and Coderus are some of the popular companies that use SQLite, whereas MSSQL is used by esportshub, Shared User Management System - Georgia Institute of Technology, and engel80. SQLite has a broader approval, being mentioned in 443 company stacks & 2542 developers stacks; compared to MSSQL, which is listed in 20 company stacks and 22 developer stacks.

      What are some alternatives to MSSQL and SQLite?
      MySQL
      The MySQL software delivers a very fast, multi-threaded, multi-user, and robust SQL (Structured Query Language) database server. MySQL Server is intended for mission-critical, heavy-load production systems as well as for embedding into mass-deployed software.
      PostgreSQL
      PostgreSQL is an advanced object-relational database management system that supports an extended subset of the SQL standard, including transactions, foreign keys, subqueries, triggers, user-defined types and functions.
      Oracle
      Oracle Database is an RDBMS. An RDBMS that implements object-oriented features such as user-defined types, inheritance, and polymorphism is called an object-relational database management system (ORDBMS). Oracle Database has extended the relational model to an object-relational model, making it possible to store complex business models in a relational database.
      IBM DB2
      DB2 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows is optimized to deliver industry-leading performance across multiple workloads, while lowering administration, storage, development, and server costs.
      MongoDB
      MongoDB stores data in JSON-like documents that can vary in structure, offering a dynamic, flexible schema. MongoDB was also designed for high availability and scalability, with built-in replication and auto-sharding.

      We build queries in PHP with DSQL that work with SQLite. We also have SQLite data controller, so that you can build SQLite-based models.

      Used during the "build process" of Coolfront Mobile's Flat rate search engine database. Flat rate data that resides in Salesforce is transformed using SQLite into a format that is usable for our mobile Flat rate search engine (AKA: Charlie).

      RDBTools is a self-hosted application, and it is important that the installation process is simple. With SQLite, we create a new database file for every analysis. Once the analysis is done, the SQLite file can be thrown away easily.

      All the dynamic data (i.e.: jobs) is stored in a simple SQLite database.

      Все динамические данные (вакансии) хранятся в простой SQLite БД.

      There's really no call for something heavier for this site. SQLite is simple, easy to use and quite reliable given its age.
