It is based on ESE (Extensible Storage Engine) which extends on demand.

From CertExpert's link: "Active Directory is implemented on top of an indexed sequential access method (ISAM) table manager.  This database is a version of the ESE database that is used by Microsoft® Exchange Server version 5.5 client/server messaging and groupware."
