Re: Great masses of files on database.

You have a common question and this topic is covered many times, here and elsewhere on the web.

The simple problem is 1) store the information in the database or 2) store metadata in the database and the files elsewhere.

It may be easier to store the metadata (patient links, path to file, etc) in the database and store the files on a redundant data storage area.

You could do a similar approach using the database as the media store, but it still uses the database resources.

Storing such large data files within the database would add significant bloat to your backup and managment processes.
