No, you need to use Auto-Hosted (free azure storage) or Provider-Hosted (you are resp for creating the whole web application including storage).

  • Please note that auto-hosted apps only are available in Office 365 (SP Online) though Commented Apr 2, 2014 at 15:25

I think auto hosted apps are still in preview state so it is not recommended to use for production scenarios. The option we have now is Provider hosted app. https://officeams.codeplex.com/discussions/539315
