Access 2013 web app file storage
Posted on 2014-12-29
With desktop applications and the need to track many large image files, the approach was to save a link to the file instead of storing the file as a blob directly in the database. That was great, and I've used that for many of my customers.
Now I'm building an Access 2013 web application and I need to do the same thing. I have around 100GB of data in the form of artwork files that need to be uploaded, downloaded, and saved, associated to a particular record. The Azure allocation of file storage for Sharepoint apps is a paltry 1GB. So, where shall I put this 100GB of data? If I find a place to store it online, how do I get my Access 2013 web app to upload the artwork files to the online storage?
Any help would be appreciated.
