Ideal way of uploading huge files in ASP.NET
Posted on 2006-11-06
How to accomodate uploading huge files in ASP.NET. To quantify the term 'huge', I mean something around 500 MB per user.
Since this is a photo studio portal website, I also need to take into account regarding concurrent users and other server equilibrium factors and hence I don't think I can just increase HttpRuntime values in machine.config or web.config just in ad hoc fashion.
If ASP.NET can not scale up, can some workaround be done using ASP or PHP or Perl technologies. The bottomline of the problem is that the application would run in ASP.NET. While an upload is encountering, the handler above would process that and return the processing to the main thread.
