Database

The database stores administrative information, security policy rules, endpoint history, and other information about security events. The database is managed over the MS-SQL platform. Each database requires a license and can communicate with one or more ESM Servers. The database may be installed on the same server as the ESM Console and ESM Server, such as in a standalone environment, or the database can be installed on a dedicated server. For information on hardware and software requirements for the database, see Database Software Requirements.
During evaluation we recommend you use SQL Server Express which enables you to easily migrate the database to SQL Server Standard or SQL Server Enterprise.
