SQL Server :: File System Better Than Sql Server For Video Storage?

Nov 6, 2010

Currently, I am storing images and video clips in my database as a varbinary(max).

The problem is that when my front-end goes to retrieve and play the video, it takes an excessive amount of time to download.

For example, I have a video file: test.avi (5mb). If I attempt to read from database and play avi, it takes about 40 seconds. If I attempt to play this test.avi from the filesystem, it takes about 10 seconds to load.

I have investigated compression/decompression, but those seem to be as time-consuming as just loading up the raw data from the database.

Should I scrap storing video clips in the database, and go for a file system approach. I would really like to keep everything clean, secure, and organized. Which is why I am storing images, video clips, etc. in database.

How To Scale Document Storage System

Feb 1, 2011

I maintain a web application (ASP.NET/IIS7/SQL2K8/Win2K8) that needs to access documents, actually hundreds of thousands of documents, and growing. Currently, they are all on a Windows 2K8 Server fileshare, being accessed by UNC path (SMB). The files are in a single flat directory and I'm trying to plan how to best improve this solution. I don't want to use the SQL Filestream attribute as it would be significant effort to migrate it all into that, and would really lock in to SQL Server. I also need to find a way to replicate the data for disaster recovery, so perhaps a solution can help with that too. Options could be: Segment files into multiple directories? application would add metadata for which directory it's on (or segment by other means) Segment files into separate servers? (virtualize)Backup becomes more complicated. Application would add metadata for which server it's on

NAS Storage
SAN Storage

Put a service (WCF) in front of the files and have the app talk to the service bonus of being reusable across many applications Assuming I'm going to store on filesystem and not in database (I've read those disccusions here), which would be a more scalable solution?

How To Secure File Transfer And Storage

Feb 21, 2011

I would like to be able to give my users the ability to securely upload and store files, sometimes upwards to about a gigabyte in size. I'm not quite sure what's the best way to go about doing this. I would like to have the connection between the client and the server secured, so I'm sure I will probably have to use SSL. Now, my major crux is secure storage. Being that the data is somewhat sensitive, I'm wondering if I should encrypt the file before it is stored. I guess my question is, should I open the file and encrypt each byte or encrypt the file as a whole. I'm assuming that the latter is the better option. I know that there are a number of examples of how to encrypt a file using a number of different methods (aes, des, md5 (hashing not really encrypting), etc). Currently, to encrypt text, I am using the Rijndael algorithm, sha1, 256 bit keys, a predefined passphrase, salt value, and IV.

C# - Developing A File Storage Web Application?

Aug 5, 2010

I'm currently developing a web application whose primary user function is uploading and downloading of files. The files will be stored on the hard disk (no cloud storage yet).

Taking into consideration the possibilities of gigabytes of data and a large number of files, do I need to organize files into sub folders to account for the fetching of a file or is the file system's indexing already very efficient and I can ignore this potential bottle neck?


On a side note, I plan to store file names and any additional information in a SQL database and only query the disk when a user actually wants to download the file. This is how I plan on retrieving files:

FileStream stream = File.Open("C:file.txt");
byte[] fileContent = new byte[stream.Length];
stream.Read(fileContent, 0, fileContent.Length;

Any file information will be retrieved from the database. The hard disk will only be used for saving and fetching files.

Update 2:

Files will be saved as GUID + EXTENSION on the hard disk while the actual file name is stored in the database.
