Help me understand which enterprise geodatabase (mainly PostgreSQL question)

I cannot find a good list that tells me what I am looking for. My company currently has ArcGIS for Server Workgroup, Standard license. Does this mean that I can only use Microsoft SQL Server Express as my Enterprise Geodatabase?

 

If I was presented with a PostgreSQL database, would I not be able to connect to this database due to the type of license that I have?

 

All of the documentation I have found tells me that I need to download the installation files from My Esri. (http://desktop.arcgis.com/en/arcmap/10.3/manage-data/gdbs-in-postgresql/get-started-gdb-in-postgresql.htm) If there are no installation files, is it safe to assume that I cannot use this type of database?

 

I believe I heard Derek Law mention the database limitations in one of his talks at the UC, but I cannot find that in his presentation slides.

 

Thanks in advance!
