Artifactory uses Derby as the default database, which requires no additional configuration. However, if you expect intensive usage or high load, high availability setup, and better tooling, we recommend that you use PostgreSQL( PostgreSQL v10.x to v13.x). Since other JFrog products support only PostgreSQL, choosing PostgreSQL for Artifactory allows you to use the same database for the entire JFrog Platform.
Additionally, Artifactory supports the following pluggable database implementations.
For each of the supported databases you can find the corresponding example values in the
system.yaml configuration file.
