2.1. What storage systems does PureCM use?

Up to PureCM 2010-1 

Up to PureCM 2010-1, PureCM used a purpose built database backend to store data. It is transaction based to maximise security and scales to multiple terabytes.

PureCM 2010-1 and onwards 

With the release of PureCM 2010-1, the default database has been changed to SQLite for new installations. SQLite is an embedded database that is installed automatically when selected, offering significantly better performance than the native database.

Additionally, support for existing SQL Server databases was added with PureCM 2010-1d to allow customers leveraging existing expertise and infrastructure. SQL Server databases are highly scalable and therefore recommended for large installations. Also, they can be managed using the powerful database management tools available, e.g. for backups or database replication.
