Photo limitation in hosted services

I am working on a project that could involve collecting thousands of points and pictures using the Collector app. I am thinking of using my origination's credits to "pay" for the hosted cloud space that is provided by Esri. With all the photo attachments involved with this project, I could be looking at 100-200 GB of photos being stored within my hosted File GDB in the cloud. Is there a limit to how many photos a file GDB can store? Is there a work around that would allow me to store my feature data in the Esri cloud, but still link my photos to each feature and have them located on an image server outside of my file GDB?


File GDB's are designed to store various types of geographic data, so I am very cautious to use the Esri cloud file GDB as a large photo storage location as well. Any insight would be helpful.
