I am wondering what kind of support CRDB has for file storage, such as images/files or arbitrary sized blobs. Considering the KV store on the backend can we expect to be able to store larger blobs than a traditional relational DB?
CockroachDB is not currently well suited for storing large blobs. Our docs recommend keeping blobs to around 64KB. Larger values are possible, but the total size of a row (including all columns, and all versions within the GC TTL) must not exceed the maximum range size (64MB by default).
Just bit wondering, Is it 64KB or 64MB?
It’s 64MB, megabytes.
I don’t see that recommendation of 64 kb there (anymore). Does this mean that cockroachdb can handle files now better?
