Completly, I use a sqlite fs on some projects with terabyte db size and
0 problems. One has write file once, update occasional and lots of
reads (no deletes) workload. Read speed is faster than XFS and UFS2.

You need to tune Sqlite to big databases and blob direct read (check the page 
Dr. Hipps linked for compile options)
