Metalogix and Ontrack PowerControl Solutions for Microsoft SharePoint BLOB Data
Microsoft SharePoint is growing very quickly during the last years relying on SharePoint as business critical application. Files, videos, office documents are an example of unstructured data that are stored in SharePoint content database with the associate metadata. BLOB data can consume lots of space in the SQL database and would impact in the performance of some of the normal SharePoint daily tasks.
To improve performance, management and reduce costs we can store BLOB externally reducing SQL Database storage size. EMC and Metalogix have partnered to bring Enterprise solutions for Microsoft SharePoint Applications.
SharePoint BLOB Storage Solution with Metalogix and EMC Isilon Scale-Out NAS Solution provides efficiency externalizing BLOB data outside the SQL Server database and increase performance with EMC Isilon scale-out NAS.
- Externalizing BLOB Data with Metalogix StoragePoint and SharePoint EBS/RBS provider shrink SQL Databases by up to 95%.
- Transparent to end users
- Increase efficiency with over 80% storage utilization for BLOB data with EMC Isilon scale-out NAS
- Simplicity management with monitoring and reporting tools.
Isilon scale-out NAS is simple to install and use. EMC Isilon OneFS operating system distributes data uniformly across all the nodes in an Isilon Cluster, this feature reduces costs, complexity and risks for scaling storage.
Metalogix StoragePoint recognizes when multiples copies of the same BLOB are stored in SharePoint library and will maintain only one copy improving storage efficiency.
Microsoft SQL Server stores all the data in Tier 1 block storage, which is very expensive; externalizing BLOB data will reduce the size of your SQL Database and the space on Tier 1 storage. Metalogix and Isilon Solution enable SharePoint to store BLOBs on a cost effective Isilon scale-out. To optimize BLOB storage resources, Isilon SmartPools software helps to automate storage tiering infrastructure.
