Data Storage

Last update: Edit

1 Introduction

Data storage is the data foundation of the Mendix runtime. Data storage does the following:

  • Connects to supported relational databases
  • Stores and retrieves entities and associations from the domain model
  • Translates XPath and OQL queries to SQL queries
  • Handles security transparently and effectively

2 Supported Databases

For apps deployed to the Mendix Cloud, Mendix uses a PostgreSQL database for storing the data defined in the app domain model(s).

If you are deploying to a different infrastructure, Mendix supports the following databases.

  • IBM DB2
  • HSQLDB
  • MySQL
  • Oracle RDBMS
  • PostgreSQL
  • SAP HANA
  • Microsoft SQL Server
