This is a great topic for me, as I'm just now starting to consider
this very issue.
Is there any advantage to maintaining separate databases for backup purposes?
Specifically, I am going to have a large number of tables with text
info, and just a few tables that saves several gigabytes of images
and data files. I was thinking of having the text data in one
database to allow for frequent backups (every few hours), with the
large image and file database backed up less frequently (once a day
or less frequently).
Is the balance in backing up several hundred megs of text data
frequently v. several gigabytes of less critical binary data a good
reason to maintain separate databases? All thoughts welcome...
