Access has two different parts: the interface (and interface builder), and the database.

The interface is what you see. The database can be the default JET engine, or you can use SQL Server, or Oracle, or whatever compatible database system you want. As far as I know, you could even use SAS running on a mainframe as your database engine (probably not fast).
