Re: Large files in a database

Oracle has several ways of handling this issue. Yes, BFile is one intrinsic method of keeping the file outside of the database. BFile is one example of a LOB (Large Object) datatype in Oracle. In addition, Oracle has other interesting, native (read no additional licensing required) multimedia capabilities that might help manage the images either inside or outside the database.
To be fair, similar discussions hold for the other mainstream RDBMSs.
