The BEL Framework is preconfigured to use an embedded database to store BEL Documents and Knowledge Assembly Models (KAMs). For performance and scalability reasons, the embedded database option is not recommended for any production deployment. To deploy the BEL Framework in a production environment, choose from one of the following databases:
- MySQL Database Server 5.x
- Oracle Database Server 11g
Refer to the BEL Framework V1.0 System Configuration Guide for additional information on configuring the above databases.
