That should work if you make sure your files are stored using the
DataStore, which is the default IIRC.

And of course you'll need to measure performance to verify that it
matches your need, but generally with the DataStore storing and
retrieving binaries is efficient, Jackrabbit/Sling do not add at lot
of top of Java's IO code.

Sling uses Jackrabbit by default and should have a negligible impact
on the performance of storing/retrieving files, as long as you make
sure your files are streamed and not fully loaded in memory.
