AdaptableStorage (Ape, now, right?) maybe: it can do anything.
DirectoryStorage is a file-system based storage, with nothing and
nothing else to do with relational databases. Unless you consider the
filesystem to be an RDB, in which case you're wrong. (The filesystem is
a database, and usually a pretty good one, but it is not relational.)
There are various specialized RDB-based storages: BerkleyDB, Oracle,
maybe others. These map the ZODB into a relational database. I don't
know that I'd prefer these over FileStorage or DirectoryStorage.
