    Hi,Karthick R

    1.SQLite

    A larger capacity, compatibility and functionality, open-source and continuously updated.

    Refer to https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/dotnet/standard/data/sqlite/?tabs=netcore-cli

    2.LocalDB or SQL Server Express

    The former is a lightweight database application that comes with the installation of the SQL Server engine, sufficient for simple application development. The latter is the free version of SQL Server, reliable, practical, and powerful.

    Best Regards,

    Mikey Qiao
