vCloud Director cells use a database to store shared information. This database must exist before you can complete installation and configuration of vCloud Director software.

Important: vCloud Director supports SSL connections only to a PostgreSQL database.
For information about the supported vCloud Director databases, see the VMware Product Interoperability Matrixes.
Note: Regardless of the database software you choose, you must create a separate, dedicated database schema for vCloud Director to use. vCloud Director cannot share a database schema with any other VMware product.
