What is a Blob? Blob is short for Binary Large Object. Blobs are stored as binary data directly within a database server as opposed to a file within a file system. This provides you with the best possible read, write, and availability performance.
Does HighContext replace my traditional relational database? No. HighContext provides key-value storage with a focus on ease of use and delivering high-performance at scale.
Can I configure the data residency of my blobs? Yes, each blob is primarily stored in the region of your choice.
Can I store any type of blob format with HighContext? No. HighContext supports only JSON-formatted blobs.
What's the maximum blob size I can upload? We restrict our services to blobs with a size of <= 100 MB. Need something different? Contact us to tell us more about your use case.
