Different types of database

When attempting to add a database, it's necessary to define the type of the database being added. I'd like to know if there's any way to add a database with a type different from the one predefined by Metabase.

No these are the supported databases:

But you can try to add unsupported plugins if you want to try you will find a couple around. You need to add them in the plugin folder of where you deployed metabase

I need to add InterSystems Caché, do you know anything about how to do this?

never heard of such a plugin for that sorry

You can use MS SQL, then have a linked database. That will work with anything that supports ODBC or OLE DB. Performance isn't quite as good and it's a faff to setup but does the job.
If you need Caché, it suggest this may not work due to data volumes. Depends what you're trying to do.

Does this also work with a JDBC?
