Kris,

Another option, depending on the size of the files of course, is to  
create a secondary database for the application and store the files  
within that database.

I am not claiming that this is optimal for your instance, just that  
it is a very effective option and should be at least thought about.

If the files are smaller and you increase your database caching  
"sufficiently" then this can prove to be a very viable option and  
quite simple to implement.
