It’s a common belief among developers that storing binaries in a database is not a best practice. It is particularly believed to be slow in both read and write performance. A common solution is then to store binaries as files on a (networked) filesystem while keeping a reference to those files in the database. While this is fine in most cases it does pose one issue: It’s not ACID.
