I'm pretty sure the answer is no but I wanted to ask.

If we wanted to use another DBMS instead of SQLite for the Account DB and Container DB (and any other DBs), is that possible with some easy config?

Thanks, Everett

The easy answer is "no". You can't do that. There is no config to change it.

A swift cluster can have millions of individual sqlite databases. And replication relies on being able to rysnc the dbs between servers. Those sorts of things aren't really feasible with most other databases.
