Content management systems need to manage both content and metadata. Documentum uses the host file system (by default) to store the content and a Relational Database Management System (RDBMS) to manage metadata and its association with the content items. Note that the content can also be stored in other types of storage systems, including an RDBMS, a content-addressed storage (CAS), or external storage devices.
