    Hi Carlos
    The TMF Open APIs are just that, a specification for APIs. They make no assumptions about the architecture of the underlying software implementation of the API functionality.
    So it's up to you to choose a persistent storage that meets your business and non-functional needs.
    It could be argued, due to the nature of the Open API payloads (JSON documents), that non-SQL document databases would be a good match, but really there's a lot more to discuss, such as transaction support, reliability, scalability, and a whole lot more.
    Hope it helps.
