While CKAN allows easy flexibility in the file storage location, I haven’t found anything in the documentation about how we can put the CKAN database behind the firewall.  Has anyone done this? 

That approach, of the database not publically accessible/internal network only, is quite a common set-up, and the approach we generally use in our deployments.
