Getting past the 4GB limit in Business Contact Manager

I have a client using Business Contact Manager.  His data file is 3.4GB.  He is running it with Outlook 2010 32-bit on Windows 7 64-bit computer.
I realize we can't exceed the 4GB limit in this configuration.  I would like to find out what options are available, though.  Is Microsoft 365 a potential solution?  Could I install SQL Server 2008 R2 and host the BCM database on that server?
I am not real familiar with BCM (just picked up this new client) and I appreciate any guidance you can offer.

Hi Rick,

SQL Server 2008 R2 Express has had its database limit increased to 10gb. I would suggest starting with that as the cheaper option. You would be able to upgrade to SQL Server 2008 R2 should your database reach 10gb.
