SAP Content Server - File System Storage is a Database still installed?


Hello, Everyone

I have installed about 30 SAP Content Servers for different customers all using the MaxDB, however today a new customer asked me if they installed the SAP Content Server were to use the File System option to store the documents instead of the MaxDB, would a DB still still be installed? If so what kind?

My initial thought would be "Yes", The get URL for ArchiveLink only includes the documentID and Content Repository, nothing else to indicate the location of where the document would be located on the file system. But you don't see any DB being installed when you just install the SAP Content Server.

Has anyone had any experience with this? I rather not build an VM and do an a Content Server install just to figure this out.
