All editions of SharePoint require Microsoft SQL Server databases to store metadata and document content. This leaves IT departments with the challenge to operate and maintain a fast growing Microsoft SQL Server database environment. About 80 percent of the storage volume in these databases is binary large object (BLOB) content, which is not necessary for queries to the database.
Storing BLOB content outside of SharePoint databases reduces costs and increases efficiency, enabling the storage and management of an increased number of documents, simplifying backup and restore processes, and allowing customers to house SharePoint content on less expensive storage devices.
OpenText Storage Services for Microsoft SharePoint is compatible with devices from all major storage providers—including Hitachi Data Systems, StorageTek, Network Appliance, EMC Centera, HP, IBM, and Sun Microsystems.
- Integration of Storage Services for SharePoint configuration and administration into the SharePoint administration user interface
- Ability to specify a BLOB storage location on both the Web Application and Site Collection level
Configurable deletion delay intervals, enabling administrators to specify how long a BLOB should be unused before deletion
- Multiple file detection to ensure that only a single instance of every file is stored
