This topic lists the databases supported by vCenter Hyperic.

The vCenter Hyperic database supports PostgreSQL or vPostgreSQL 9.1.x.

The vCenter Hyperic server vApp includes a VM with a vPostegrSQL database. The built-in database installed when you run the vCenter Hyperic installer in default mode is PostgreSQL.

For deployments with more than 60 platforms, run the database on a dedicated host, not on the same machine as the vCenter Hyperic server.
