Question of the Day

Implementing Change Data Capture

I have a complex environment that uses quite a few SQL Server 2022 servers. We have a powerful SQL Server running Enterprise that hosts most of our transaction data. However, there are remote locations that run Standard, Web, Express, and Express with Advanced Services editions for local collection of data before the data is transferred to our central Enterprise Edition server. We are considering using Change Data Capture (CDC) to lower the amount of data we transfer from clients. Which editions can we implement this feature on?
