Does ArcGIS Server deployment require an existing relational database (SQL Server) or could I deploy with only existing File GDBs?

I am an analyst and far being from a DBA tasked with looking into implementing an Enterprise set up for our office. I am trying to understand how an ArcGIS for Server deployment might work for us. We currently do not have an existing DBMS for our GIS data, so I am wondering whether building a DBMS is required for an ArcGIS for Server deployment or if there might be a workaround such as using Esri's File GDBs.
