SharePoint is one of the most popular product of MicroSoft mostly used in offices and organization. The numbers of its users are increasing day by day. As it is a database driven product and volume of database increases on daily basis in an organization, so it may ends up with some performance and storage issues. As it has to make very frequent trips to database for almost its entire works, its performance and scalability may be affected and as a result, the end user will be affected. There are some third party independent products which can solve these problems. One of them is StorageEdge. You can speed up SharePoint by removing its storage bottlenecks and dramatically reducing database size and the transaction load. Further accelerate SharePoint with caching BLOBs, lists, ASP.NET session state, and View State.
StorageEdge boost the performance and scalability of the SharePoint with the help of BLOB Externalization and caching. What is shown to the user is either a list or a document (also called a BLOB) and it comes form database. By removing the BLOB from database and place it in a file system or SAN/NAS storage, most of the pressure of database is relived. Along with it StorageEdge also provides distributed caching to SharePoint which means that it cache the frequently used data. Whenever there is any request from the users, app gets the results from the cache and doesn’t go to database which saves a lot of time. As a result of this the performance and scalability of SharePoint increases dramatically.
