I do have an application which extracts md5 and sha1 hashes from files and store them into DB. We've to maintain uniqueness on the bases of md5&sha1 and a lot of read operations are accessing the hashes. The data growth in tables will be huge. So what will be the best data-type I can choose storing the hashes. Should I go with binary type or varchar/char type. & how this can impact the performance.
Please not that that there are going to happen a lot of read & write operations.

Thanks.
