I am working on a project in which I have to store atleast 100000 images and rich media like virtual tour, promotional videos.
I would like to know the best practice to store it in order to retrieve it in show it on website.
What should I store it as:
Store the url into the database and store the actual image on the physical server.
Store the image itself as a binary into the sql server itself and then convert it to runtime and show on the website.
I need to know which way is the best and suitable way to do this task.
