Chapter 14. Large Objects > Understanding the LONG and LONG RAW Types

Understanding the LONG and LONG RAW Types

I mentioned at the start of this chapter that LOBs are now the preferred storage type for large blocks of data, but you may encounter older databases that still use the following types:

  • LONG Used to store up to 2 gigabytes of character data

  • LONG RAW Used to store up to 2 gigabytes of binary data

  • RAW Used to store up to 4 kilobytes of binary data
