Oracle 11g saw through very significant PL/SQL feature i.e. Storage of external files/objects. These objects fall under unstructured data category and database recognises them as Large Objects. They are stored as LOB types in database. This normal storage was improved upon, after this philosophy slowly moved from ‘featured one’ to ‘overhead’ level in terms of application performance and security.

Surely for the readers, come up with your comments, feedbacks and queries. I shall be thankful.
