Database Layer

This server powers the Microsoft SQL database. The database contains configuration data, tables and business data that needs to be persisted. Access to the database is secure and access to the data is via programmatic means only. The database on the app server hosts non-sensitive related data.

For the purposes of this content, sensitive data is data that is considered as requiring special treatment according to PCI governance rules. There is a separate database hosted in the PCI Compliant environment that contains sensitive payment data.
