Serving databases with container fields

If your file sizes are large the chances are that they have some fields with the type ‘container’. Typically these contain PDFs, images, Word, Excel or some other file format. The large database file sizes this produces can really slow things down. This video shows the adjustment you need to make to split the database data from the container data at the server end. We require this for hosted files greater than 250 MB but it is good practice anyway.
