  • SQLite is supported by each and every platform
  • Lot of tools are available.
  • SQLite has only 1 file (SQLCE too)
  • The same file can be opened and used on other machine, OS. It is binary compatible between all platforms and can be easily moved, copied, saved/restored.
  • Simple file API can be used by SW when necessary to create, recreate, repair the DB
  • SQLite DB is about 2 times smaller then SQLCE DB
  • It is at least 2 times faster then SQLCE
  • It needs no maintenance at all
