Using MySQL as a filesystem

Posted by: Anonymous [ip:] on February 16, 2008 08:21 AM
Maybe you want to link data from an existing database with some files that you can access and update through a filesystem interface.
For example, storing digital pictures or other content that like to be seen as a filesystem and being able to select * from mysqlfs, existingtable... where JOIN-Condition-Here.

IIRC there was a large company playing up how wonderful life could be when filesystem queries could be performed using SQL. Can't recall the name of the company off the top... microsomething?
