Hi @shantanoo-desai , sure you can host your own Vorto Repository on your local machine or a server that's not in a cloud. You can either run the SpringBoot application directly, or use our Docker image to spin up your own instance. You can find a quickstart guide for using the Docker image here: https://github.com/eclipse/vorto/blob/master/docker/Readme.md
If you have further questions feel free to reach out again.

@shantanoo-desai Vorto is not restricted to any specific platform. I think for understanding how it works, it is important to distinguish the different components.
The Vorto repository is a standalone application with a REST API that you can call from any application. There is a Java client that simplifies the integration for Java application.
The Payload Mapping Engine (aka. Vorto Middleware) is a separate component that retrieves the mapping specifications from the repository and uses it to map telemetry data. To receive data the Middleware supports the AMQP protocol. The middleware can be easily extended to support multiple output types. AWS Kinesis is already implemented for time series data. (see here: https://github.com/eclipse/vorto-examples/tree/master/vorto-middleware/middleware-ext-kinesis)
We currently are not planning to add InfluxDB or other similar DBs. If you would like to do the implementation, we are glad to accept your contribution.
