Hello all,

We have several desktop ArcGIS users that will read Geodata stored in SQL Server 2012, mostly vector features.
What would give them a better performance? Storing the data in an Enterprise Geodatabase or using a regular database with the Geometry Spatial Type?
The users will not be editing the data.
