          Hi Suneelkumar --


          1. We use PostgreSQL
          2. No, it is not.(It is possible, actually...but not supported and would put the install of Tableau Server "outside" of support guidelines.)
          3. No. Per #2, we don't let people use our database as a storage location for arbitrary. However, you may want to read about "Tableau Extracts" which allow you to save rows from different data sources in a columnar, in-memory store.


          Hope this helps!
