Hey, Samuel.

I believe that it uses MySQL (MariaDB). On top of that, it also uses Redis and ElasticSearch - http://highscalability.com/blog/2014/1/6/how-hipchat-stores-and-indexes-billions-of-messages-using-el.html As of now, I don't think there is any possibility of having external database for HipChat Server.
