Store Mosaic dataset

Where should I store a mosaic dataset?  File geodatabase or Enterprise geodatabase?  Currently we have a stand along Image Server(9.3) without ArcGIS Server installed on it, and users load image services via the ArcMap image server client.  I am migrating our ArcGIS 9.3 image services and I was planning on using a fIle geodatabase located on the same server as our ArcGIS server. I was then going to share these out as Image Services to distribute to our end users.   We will be using ArcGIS 10.2.2.

Hi Matt,

I recommend File Geodatabases.  The performance is usually faster than enterprise geodatabases.
