xcAuction can utilize a JET database for small scale auction sites. This is a single file database, that is included with xcAuction and can be used on any webserver that xcAuction will run on. For larger sites, or when the highest security and reliability are required, we highly recommend running xcAuction on a Microsoft SQL Server database. Microsoft SQL Server 7.0 and later are supported (includes MSSQL 2000, MSSQL 2005). In a hosted environment, you do not normally need to license SQL Server yourself. Most good web hosts will also be able to provided hosted SQL Server databases at very reasonable costs.
