In Entity Analytics can an external repository be used rather than solidDB?
The Entity Analytics Users Guide references using an external database for the EA repository.
Can SQL Server be used?
Resolving the problem
Modeler Entity Analytics is bundled with a single repository hosted on the IBM solidDB. Entity Analytics Unleashed (EAU) is available as a separately licensed upgrade. However, SQL Server is not a supported database with the unleashed license, only DB2. EAU allows more than one repository to coexist on the same system and allows DB2 to be used as an external repository.
