NoSQL datastores are explicitly designed to handle this kind of large,
blob-ish data. In a sense, NoSQL was sort of designed as a "smarter"
filesystem - i.e. data storage that allows for more complex queries in
SQL was designed more on the principles of relational calculus.
Storage of large data is sort of an afterthought add-on (and varies
widely between the database providers). SQL's advantage when it comes
to complex queries across multiple tables.
