Yes you can in Foundation 2010/2013 as it included Business Data Connectivity Services. You'll need to create a service application, then use SharePoint Designer to create the External Content Type. This will depend on the database type, are you using SQL?

There should be plenty online to walk you through how to do this. If not, let me know. HTH
