This really depends on how it's going to be used.  Do these inserts
need to be made to the same exact image to prevent collisions? Can
they go to multiple servers and be aggregated at a later date?  Are
you running thousands of inserts in the same transaction? couple? one?

vendors tend to overcharge for storage boxes.
