windows server 2016 Essentials

Hello Experts,
This customer is using windows server 2016 express

what are the limitations or missing parts of the essential versions?

given the fact that our application uses a MySQL database and visual c# as a development environment?

Should we look for another version of windows server?

Regards

Given that essentials also MUST be a domain controller, it is particularly I'll suited for development. Look towards another edition.
