  • Hi WLID1966,

    For SFB standard edition and enterprise edition, the function of the two edition are the same, the big difference is that the standard edition is not supported for high availability.

    For SFB standard edition:
    1. It’s all in one which means that you can collect all server roles in the same server except edge server.
    2. For SFB backend database, it is collected with SFB FE server which is a SQL server express edition
    3. It’s supported about 5000 users

    For SFB enterprise edition:
    1. It’s supported high availability
    2. For Backend database, you must deploy it with a separate server, and you need to install the SQL server full edition.
    3. It’s supported for about 80000 users per pool.

    I will share a document for your reference
