Hi Everybody

We are in design of a Document Management System. The application is expected to store files of type Office Documents, Images and PDFs and the count of documents would be between 2000 and 3000 per day. I would like to know primarily where the documents to be stored; i.e Store the files in File System or to Store in Database.

If I store the files in Database will the database be able to hold the load.

Experts Please Advise.

Thank You.

Since you're using SQL 2008, have you considered FileStream? Best of both worlds - in the filesystem, backed up with the database.
