Thank you for respond, this is definitely a good point, I will involve it.

The question is, how much faster it would be.. I would like to make a
simple test to simulate this soon and estimate the percentage difference..

Another point is a simple backup of the SQL database, using an existed
global backup system in a company, which is one of the main benefits of
the SQL backend. Would the external plain data be a problem for global
backup or not?
