While I have traditionally been inclined to keep images out of
databases, in the case of the application I am developing for my
company, we've made the decision to go ahead and use our DBMS to store
image data. Web servers are far better optimized to serve images, but
in our case we felt it was more important to lessen the possibility of
somehow disconnecting our row data with its corresponding image. For
our application, though, the minor loss of performance with this
architecture is not significant; your application may have different
We're using SQL Server to store our images and keeping our geometry data
in a separate PostgreSQL database. We use custom .NET code to insert
images into the database and to retrieve them. But because I am
paranoid, we keep our image data in a separate database from our related
row data, so we can tune the image database as our application grows.
