This article on TechNet reads:
RBS can be run on the local server running Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2, SQL Server 2008 or SQL Server 2008 R2 Express. To run RBS on a remote server, you must be running SQL Server 2008 R2 Enterprise edition.
Does this mean that I cannot deploy SharePoint in two-tier environment (SharePoint on server1, SQL Server on server2) unless I am using SQL Server Enterprise? Or does it mean that the BLOBs cannot be installed on a remote server (such as a SAN) unless I have SQL Server Enterprise.
What I am looking at is a two server installation with SharePoint Foundation 2010 and SQL Server 2008 R2 Standard. I need to know if I can use the RBS FileStream provider in this scenario where the data is stored on a SAN. What is meant by "on a remote server" in the article above?
