SharePoint stores documents in Microsoft SQL Server databases, an architecture that was never designed to efficiently store unstructured data. But more and more, unstructured data is what’s populating SharePoint databases. This can lead to performance and reliability issues. Fortunately, Remote BLOB Storage (RBS) mitigates this issue by moving BLOBs outside SQL and replacing them with pointers to the actual content, without impacting SharePoint features or functionality. This approach can save money because RBS solutions can store BLOBs on less expensive storage tiers and reduce overall storage requirements by eliminating the duplicate BLOBS that are common in SharePoint content libraries. This paper covers RBS in greater detail later, as well as alternative RBS solutions and other storage optimization strategies. Read it to discover more.
