Image vs varbinarymax performance
See some best practices here. In one collection, there can be documents with different properties, though they must be in some logical relation to others in the same collection. This special technique enables the storing of large BLOBs, i. To implement this, GridFS uses two collections; one is fs. These little parts have ids, reference to the file and an index to rebuild them in the correct order and the binary data itself.
If the last one does not need the predefined place, it leaves the remaining segments free for other documents. Besides this, you can load only the desired sections of a huge file into the memory to get the precious data. GridFS uses an index on every chunk and file to increase performance; we can define our own custom index too. Does that mean you have to choose from one of the above when exposing files?
The answer is absolutely not. The good old File System is still the fastest kid on the ground, I highly recommend it when you have gigantic files. You should also check out static content distributers for providing media more efficiently.
First, we must get clear about the data that appears in databases. These kinds of data are easily stored in the strict template of a relational scheme of course in NoSQL databases too and efficiently ordered, searched and filtered on different properties of an object.
Is this what I am asking???? Second example is a SQL, doing the same. Inserting an Image into a table in a Varbinary column.
Is this what I am asking?? Mark Wills Topic Advisor Commented: The important thing will be your end application, and you have not said how the DB is being accessed, or what that app is. It might need recompiling with the new datatype - it might not be entirely transparent. Best then is to try it out. While you could just go into SSMS and change the column to varbinary max datatype, probably safer to take a multi-step process.
Have a look at the previous test with a few more steps: If the test works, terrific, if not can change the names back again. I would highly suggest that you would get better speed if you save the image to disk and just use a pointer to the disk file. It will cause data bloat otherwise. Question has a verified solution.
