  • It's better to not store large data like that in the database, store something that points to where it can be found instead.


    But, if you must store it in the database (which still isn't a good idea), use varbinary(max) for SQL Server 2005+. It does have a limit of 2^31 bytes. For Oracle, you'd use BLOB ( 2^32 bytes).
