Beware the blob!


BLOBs, Binary Large Objects, are increasing their consumption of storage space and running havoc in SharePoint environments. Ontrack PowerControls 7.1 provides you with the weapons to fight back!

Fight Back with Granular Search and Restoration

A major challenge all SharePoint administrators face is the requirement to store BLOBs on the most expensive tier of storage when alternative, less-expensive tiers of storage can be used. “BLOBs consume 80-95 per cent of SharePoint storage space, and storing that content natively is extremely expensive and can result in poor performance,” explains Tom McCaffrey, product director of enterprise solutions, Kroll Ontrack. “Extending the granular search and restoration functionality of Ontrack PowerControls to support Metalogix StoragePoint allows IT administrators to locate and granularly restore externalised SharePoint content with ease and efficiency.”

Reduce the Food Supply – SharePoint 2013 Shredded Storage Restoration

Shredded storage refers to the new data platform improvement in SharePoint 2013, which focuses on the management of documents, but more specifically, BLOBs. Shredding reduces the amount of data passed across a network and improves performance. By storing the incremental changes made to a document, rather than saving an entire copy of the document each time it is edited and saved, shredding can also reduce storage on the SQL Server side. Ontrack PowerControls is one of the only tools on the market that can search, reassemble, and restore SharePoint 2013 Shredded Storage.
