Spring is JDBC-generic so I think we're good there. Improving our docs on this topic is being discussed in https://github.com/apache/metron/pull/646 so hopefully this will be clear once that's worked out. Simon is correct, I found out the hard way that Hibernate is not an option because of it's

Anything spring based is likely multi-db by definition as long as a we pick a good friendly ORM (not hibernate because licensing problems with apache, eclipselink?) But I suspect we should pick a good default and that that default should be postgres. > On 3 Aug 2017, at 10:24, Casey Stella

Matt, Thank you for the suggestions. I forgot to include Zookeeper. Are there any tradeoffs we should be aware of if we decide to use Zookeeper? Are there guidelines for how much data can be stored in Zookeeper? To answer your questions: 1. I think both use cases make sense so a combination

There’s a couple other places you could put config info (but maybe not saved searches): - Zookeeper - metron-alerts-ui/config.xml or config.json file - the Ambari database, whichever it happens to be Questions that influence the decision include: 1. Should there be one configuration shared
