The Database Module embeds a free SQL database engine into Ignition called H2. The database module is the easiest and fastest way to get started using SQL databases in Ignition.

Nick this looks pretty awesome. Does this save the database on the Gateway. Excuse my ignorance. Still learning SQL part of ignition.

Yes, it saves it on the same computer server that Ignition is installed. The DefaultH2 database that is automatically created for you is located in the Ignition folder here: Ignition/data/db/userdbs/default

When you make a new datasource you can store your database anywhere you want on the computer. See the documentation for more information: http://doc.perfectabstractions.com/modules/database/
