Image Store

I have to store the image at mysql as a database filed.
I am planning to use blob filed for storing images, But the experts of the mysql are suggesting to go for NFS; and store the path of the image.

If i go for blob object it slow down the performance?

Any opposition / ideas?

Thank you


Go for filesystem .
Is faster .


Thanks for the suggestion given. Many of the people have suggested the same.

I will follow this. But we are using both Fedora 11 as well as win 2003 servers for this application.

Can you help me, How to configure NFS in both Fedora / win 2003 ?

Thank you
