Blobs of LOB

The phrase ‘large objects’ may bring to your mind aircraft carriers and giant boulders, outsized books and packaging cartons. But LOBs, as they are abbreviated in Oracle Database 8, are for storing binary data (containing images, music, video, documents, executables and so on), and character data. “LOBs can store up to 128 terabytes of data, depending on the database configuration,” explains Jason Price in Oracle Database 11g SQL.
