Multi-Tiered Storage: Why and How (By Iqbal Khan)

It's a common observation that only 2-4% data is active in the database so it is cruel to treat all the data the same in terms of its storage. Its cost saving to simply offloading BLOBs from transactional SQL Server storage to less-expensive external storage

A worthwhile approach for the storage of externalized BLOBs is structure the external storage as a hierarchy of multiple tiers with one storage tier corresponding to one age-based category of BLOBs. It is important because If you keep all BLOBs in your primary, single tier of external storage, there is a fair chance you will get only a marginal benefit out of externalization.

StorageEdge provides multi-tiered storage that allows you to keep your active content in the most expensive storage and archives older content out to less expensive storage, read more



Use SharePoint Blob Caching for Performance Boost

BLOBs are saved in SharePoint in the form of unstructured data and as its size grows, access latencies can hurt the performance of SharePoint very badly. This performance issue can be handled by BLOB caching, which SharePoint also offers, but this caching is only disc based and it cant go beyond WFE in SharePoint infrastructure.

StorageEdge offers a highly sophisticated method of BLOB caching which is a unique combination of BLOB externalization and BLOB caching. StorageEdge, with the help of NCache , provides distributed caching facility for BLOB management which is distributed, highly available and failover.
