Yes, if you use an online version like Azure, see: platform-for-online-databases[^]

Microsoft offers some "lightweight" versions like LocalDb, but in my opinion these versions only add confusion and problems, e.g. when upgrading to a new version of Visual Studio. See: Everything SQL Server Compact: Comparison of SQL Server Compact, SQLite, SQL Server Express and LocalDB[^]

If your needs are simple you might also be interested in LiteDB, see: best-databases-for-a-small-net-application[^]
