Save money with intelligent content storage: Move from EBS to RBS
Enough empirical evidence is now available to establish that BLOB externalization outperforms in-SQL storage. BLOB storage in SQL Server hampers the overall performance of a SharePoint infrastructure. Microsoft first introduced External BLOB Storage (EBS) and then Remote BLOB Storage (RBS) in SQL Server 2008 R2, only as interface specifications, to let you take BLOBs out of SQL Server. StorageEdge fills the gap nicely as it provides enterprise-grade implementations for both EBS and RBS to offload BLOBs to inexpensive external storage.

Organize SharePoint Content on Remote Storage
Externalizing BLOBs to make the best of the limited resources at the disposal of a SharePoint administrator is one half of the solution. The management of the externalized content on remote storage is the remaining half. Unless managed properly, and with due consideration to various compliance, regulatory and policy requirements, the problems may outnumber the benefits of externalization.
StorageEdge stood out in its coverage of even the minute features which others found trivial. Following are some important features regarding management of BLOBs on remote storage.
- Encryption of Content
- File Shredding
- Encrypted File Names
