Questions tagged [remote-blob-storage]

Remote BLOB Storage (RBS) is an add-on feature pack for Microsoft SQL Server 2008. RBS is designed to move the storage of binary large objects (BLOBs) from database servers to commodity storage solutions. If the content databases in Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010 are 4 gigabytes (GB) or larger, consider using RBS as part of your data storage solution.
