I'm in the process of migrating an application working with Oracle to MySQL. That application stores data in the form of blobs, which can be pretty big. The Oracle production database is 60 Gb large because of that.
That's obviously a really bad idea, but that's how the system is working. For the new MySQL version, I could rewrite this part, but, given the short delay for the project, I need to know if it's essential, i.e unavoidable.
My question is: can I expect the same level of reliability in blob management when using MySQL? Which new risks is the system exposed with MySQL?
