Store file data to SQL without streaming on server – MSDN TSQL forum


–> Question:

I need to store file(s) to SQL without streaming / reading at Server. I have created a Web API with AngularJS and SQL.

e.g.

var fileType = httpRequest.Files[file].ContentType;
var fileStrm = httpRequest.Files[file].InputStream;
var fileSize = httpRequest.Files[file].ContentLength;
byte[] fileRcrd = new byte[fileSize];
var file_Name = Path.GetFileName(filePath);
fileStrm.Read(fileRcrd, 0, fileSize);

Is it possible to send file data to SQL (in bytes) without streaming / reading at server?

I don’t want to put a load on server for large files. just read the data and send them to SQL where SQL will do the streaming and store data as varbinary.
 

–> Answer:

Store the file in File System via FileTable feature that uses filestream out of the box.

Check this blog on how to setup and use FileTables starting SQL Server 2012.
