Artifactory supports the following databases that you can use depending on your requirements.
Artifactory also comes with a built-in embedded Derby database.
Artifactory supports the following modes of operation.
Metadata in the database and artifacts stored on the file system (This is the default and recommended configuration).
Metadata and artifacts stored as BLOBs in the database
Artifactory uniquely stores artifacts using checksum-based storage. For more information, see Checksum-Based Storage.
Accessing a remote database
When using an external database, you need a reliable, stable, and low-latency network connection to ensure proper functioning of your system.
When using a full-DB configuration, we strongly recommend a high-bandwidth to accommodate the transfer of large BLOBs over the network.
