Acrolinx stores terminology, analytics, and reporting data in databases. When you install the Acrolinx Core Platform, the Terminology Manager, analytics, and the reporting database each come with a default database. The default databases are freely distributed but aren’t optimal for storing high volumes of data in combination with the Core Platform. You can connect Acrolinx to a database other than the freely distributed database formats that are installed with the Core Platform.
To connect to external terminology, analytics and reporting databases, follow the relevant user guides:
- Connecting to external terminology databases
- Connecting to external Analytics databases
- Connecting to external reporting databases
Configuring the connection requires knowledge of the operating system in use, TCP/IP networks, client-server systems, and the necessary communication protocols as well as knowledge of XML.
