I am trying to install Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager 2012 and Operation Manager 2012. These products need a database called SQL Server. New features of the latest version of SQL Server database engine has been introduced.

Some topics are below
- Manageability Enhancements (DB Engine)
- Scalability and performance Enhancements
- Security Enhancements
- The Database size for SQL Server Express edition has been increased to 10 GB
- Encrypting Connections to SQL Server (more information KB258858)
These are the areas in which the Database Engine has been enhanced for both SQL Server 2008 R2 and SQL Server 2008.
