I am designing the architect of a version control system to store big design files across an enterprise. Most of files are ~10MB. But some files (Multi-media) are as big as ~500MB. The employee number is around 3000. The service will be used quite often during the day time. I am wondering that Web Service is a capable technique to handle such problem.

I do not think Web Services and SOAP are appropriate for very large media files (?). There is something ("SOAP with Attachments"?) which attempts to address such situations but some people I work with tried and gave up on using it, a while ago.

You might want to use JDBC, and CLOB's in a database, I think, that has good performance for large ones (Oracle comes to mind).

Also you probably cannot store incremental "diffs" for files which are that big and are presumably not just text, so much of the value and complexity of a version control system (involving the diffs between versions) is irrelevant.
