Recommendation for attachment storage location

Davin Studer Community Champion May 11, 2015

Is there any downside to having the attachment storage be in the db as opposed to the file system. As far as backup/restore and refreshing our test instance just having it all in the db would make those processes much easier, but if there are performance hits I wouldn't necessarily want to do that.

FYI, our install is on Windows Server and MSSQL.

The main downside is that attachments can grow rapidly and your DBAs may not be too happy with it.

However, on top of that, I wouldn't do it now - database storage of attachments was deprecated in Confluence 5.5

Ok. Looks like database storage is deprecated. So, nevermind.
