Thanks for the reply. 

I recently learned about carrierwave, which does not have a dependency on activerecord. I think am going to give that a try. I don't like the idea of having embedded documents in this case but rather a reference to a value in a separate bucket. 

I will RTFM when I get a chance but is 4MB a magic number? What happens when an entry exceeds that size?
