I have a small reporting system that I have written, where I generate PDF, XML, CSV reports. Currently I am storing the generated reports as binaryarray in the LONG RAW field of Oracle. My system generates 30-35 reports that have an average size of 57K. The max report size to date has been 1.2 MB, although there are less than 1% of reports that are of size > 1MB.
I am resisting moves to start storing my reports on file server because of tremendous time pressures. Can someopne suggest good reasons of db storage over file server storage? Are there any resources that you are aware of on the internet that can help me present with an arguement.
Thanks a lot for your help.
