Hi every body.
I have about 100,000,000 images (each one's size less than 10K , averagely 6K) means about 570GB and at the moment i had stored all of them in SQL Server 2008 R2 in one table.
my question is that which way has better speed in accessing them ?
1. Images stay in sql server with a asp.net page or web service for accessing each image with a given image name or id. (maybe using some technics like distributing the sql server on several servers or MS SQL Server parallel data warehouse)
2. Extracting all images to file system and accessing them via IIS ?
my first and important concern is about accessing speed .
