The specification doesn't state where this data has to be stored, only that it must be.

WebSphere Portal Server uses a centralized database, so that regardless of which cluster memeber a user logs into, they can access their custom data.

I don't know WebLogic too well, but with thousands of users, that data has to be stored somewhere reliable and accessible. It's gotta be a database of some type.
