The data store...do I need it?

I am rolling out the ArcGIS Enterprise products for testing.  I am wondering what is the purpose of the datastore, if I already have an relational SQL enterprise database?  The documentation makes it seem like just another database to store our data.   Do I need the datastore at all?  What benefits does it have over my current SDE database?  


Thank you
