We have a solution which includes storage of PDF documents.
Currently we have 50,000 documents that are 0.6 MB each (all documents same size)
We currently store these documents in varbinary(max) fields in SQL Server.
Everything works fine now.
Problem is that we are expecting to have over 1 million documents.
Shoud we continue to store these documents in SQL Server, or should we move them to a file system on a SAN? If we move them to a SAN what is the max number of files per directory?
