ArcSDE is a technology that bridges ArcGIS to databases.  It is not a database, so a database
is required, but the choice of database for Enterprise ArcSDE is quite flexible.  However, if you
don't have an ArcGIS Server license, choosing the database for your ArcSDE deployment is
premature (the SQL-Server Express instance which backs Personal and Workgroup ArcSDE
instances is installed by ArcGIS -- you don't get to choose the version).

All the system requirements and installation documentation are online, so you can continue
your research via the search fields in the upper-right corner, or via search engine (for example,
a google on "arcsde archiving arcgis" returned this podcast transcript on archiving).
