Db vs Filesystem for Binary contnet

The big difference is that if it's in the filesystem, the front-end web
server can serve the file without any dynamic content at all, whereas
if it's in the database, you involve the front-web server, application
server, and DB server.

All of which are not that much of a problem, except for the DB. Every
scaling problem I've ever seen that was non-trivial to fix was related
to DB contention.
