Configure a local database

The database can be installed on the same server as WebSphere Portal. Having the database on the same server has advantages and disadvantages. This is a common scenario for a proof-of-concept installation where you want to test out the capabilities and features. Another scenario that may use this configuration is a stand-alone server installation. Installing the database on another server has the advantage of distributing the processing and workload.
