How big is your SQL Server?
When you create a database, the default size is 8MB. The autogrowth setting is 64MB at a time with unlimited growth (SQL Server 2016). By the way, the initial size and autogrowth settings are not the same between SQL Server versions. You can see this in the SQL Server 2016 and SQL Server 2008 R2 screenshots below.

What’s the maximum size of a row?
The internal representation of a MySQL table has a maximum row size limit of 65,535 bytes, even if the storage engine is capable of supporting larger rows. BLOB and TEXT columns only contribute 9 to 12 bytes toward the row size limit because their contents are stored separately from the rest of the row.
Can SQL handle big data?
SQL Server Big Data Clusters provide flexibility in how you interact with your big data. You can query external data sources, store big data in HDFS managed by SQL Server, or query data from multiple external data sources through the cluster.
