I expect to host a website with many images, and I mean many - around 300-400k.
I am wondering if the number of items on my server affects access time? In other words, will GET requests be slower because I host so many images? Is saving images in plain folders even the way to go? Should I use some other method of organising images, such as databases?
The main concern here is how fast the client can get images from server.
Thanks for help
