Hi Jonathan,

PRTG comes with its own proprietary, file-based database. Therefore, you won't need any additional database server nor any additional licenses for PRTG. The database for monitoring data is always located on the core server, for local measurements as well as for data collected by remote probes.

Kind regards,
