"A lot of the enterprise push comes with the newest release of Joomla. Multi-database support in this version helps position Joomla as "enterprise glue" to connect separate and proprietary systems and data stores and allow companies to internally display the data.

"Most open source CMS run on the MySQL database, but with the most recent version of Joomla you can use Microsoft SQL Server, Azure cloud services, Oracle or PostgreSQL.
