Bulk or Blob storage

Discussion in 'Pre-sales questions' started by tmcewen, Apr 23, 2015.

  1. Does Winhost have some approximate equivalent to Azure blob storage for images, files, etc. that we don't want to store in a Sql Server database? Or do you recommend storing this type of data on Azure or AWS, while keeping the Website and Database on Winhost?
  2. We don't have any specialized storage that's optimized for large filesizes, no. But it seems to me that most people who use that kind of storage (or "cold" storage or even CDN) usually run the website from a web server elsewhere. That's kind of the direction things are going these days.

    All of the images on my personal sites run off a CDN now and I can't imagine going back to storing images on the web server. The CDN is simply better suited to deliver the larger files than the lone web server.

    So yes, site and database here and file storage elsewhere should work fine for you.
