Database selection is upto you.You can use any database. Flex communicates with the .Net using diffierent classes like HTTPService, WebService, RemoteObject etc. .Net is a middle tier between Flex and the Database.

Deploying flex applications is easy as the output is compiled swf. To create a release build of your application in Flex Builder, select Project > Export Release Build. This compiles a version of your application's SWF file that does not contain any debug information in it. Once you get the release version, copy that folder to the IIS directory.
