StoragePoint is a Remote BLOB Storage (RBS) solution that externalizes SharePoint content to slash storage cost, boost speed and simplify backup. StoragePoint moves unstructured SharePoint data, known as Binary Large Objects (BLOBs), outside of SQL Server on to affordable external storage tiers, including SAN, NAS or the Cloud. By externalizing BLOBs, StoragePoint improves SharePoint performance by shrinking databases by up to 95%. StoragePoint automatically and continuously backs up externalized BLOBs and provides item-level restore capabilities, removing the need for expensive third-party backup solutions. StoragePoint installs in minutes and is managed directly within the SharePoint Central Administration interface.
StoragePoint helps organizations backup content databases within minutes, instead of hours. With StoragePoint, organizations no longer are forced to buy the most expensive, Tier 1 storage for their SharePoint content. Because the product externalizes BLOBs outside of the SQL Server database, organizations can put in place a cost-effective, tiered storage architecture that offloads up to 95 percent of SharePoint content and dramatically improves SharePoint performance.
StoragePoint provides granular, item-level restore capability that works with standard out of the box backup tools, removing the need to purchase complex and expensive third-party backup tools. These capabilities increase the speed of backup and recovery operations, while also exceeding the Recovery Time Objective (RTO) and Recovery Point Objective (RPO) service levels now required for most organizations.
