Just looking for an opinion or suggestions. I have a windows form application that uses a SQL Server Database on a network server. Currently this applications creates XML configuration files and stores then in local folders on a users desktop. I am thinking of storing these XML configuration files into SQL Server table using filestream instead. I would need to rewrite some code but the benefit would be that all the configuration files will be centralized.
Is there anything wrong with storing XML files in SQL server via filestream? Will this impact performance of my application in anyway by retrieving XML configuration files from SQL Server instead of from a local folder?
