I have a need to share information from Web Parts on one page, with Web Parts on a second page. SharePoint does not have a default Session State, and let's say for arguments sake I cannot enable Session.

If there is a LOT of information, more than can be sent via Query String, is there another option?

You can accomplish this in several ways depending on the amount of data that you need to share. The basic idea would be to have a central repository on which the web parts can read and write data.

  1. Use a Custom List within the site to be read and updated.
  2. Custom SQL database.
  3. Use Property bags in SharePoint - Read this blog for detailed info.
