StorageEdge provides you the facility to migrate BLOBs from External BLOB Storage to Remote BLOB Storage. With this facility you can migrate content to Remote BLOB Storage (RBS) from any where. Once RBS is installed and a content database is enabled, all BLOBs from EBS and database can be migrated into the RBS content database using PowerShell 2.0 commands.
