    +[#what is lOB]
    +== What is LOB
    +
    +LOB (Large Object), a set of large object data types used to store large volumes of data,
provides random and piece-wise access to the data. 
    +
    +Database support for LOB is not universal.
    +
    +[#lob data types]
    +== LOB Data Types
    +
    +The following are the data types supported by Trafodion. +
    +
    +
    +[caption="Table 1-1 "]
    +.Descriptions for BLOB and CLOB
    +[cols="30%,70%",options="header"]
    +|===
    +| *Data Type*         | *Desciprtion*
    +| BLOB                | Binary Large Object. + 
    +
    +Holds large blocks of unstructured data in binary format. +
    +
    +BLOB is ideal for storing and handling unstructured data, such as images, audio, video
and other multimedia objects.
    +| CLOB                | Character Large Object. +
    +
    +Stores unusually large amounts of string data in character set format. +
    +
    +CLOB is ideal for storing and processing semi-structured data, such as large document
or string.
    +|===
    +
    +[#lob storage]
    +== LOB Storage
    +
    +The basic design idea is to allow a database row to have multiple LOB columns and a table
to have multiple such rows. The design takes a combination approach of rows store and column
store.

    "row store" is better ("row" is being used as an adjective)
