Hi Scott,

Can you please send me the documentation for database-backed storage service?

That's not appropriate. The ClientSessionStorageService version is meant for that. Persistent just means the storage will outlast the session and that's pointless because the data is only references by session cookies.

You shouldn't. That is not a database-backed storage service.
