Improved SharePoint Manageability
Smaller content databases translate into less operational challenges and compromises. No more long backup times…you can quickly backup and restore content databases and with site collection and web application -scoped storage profiles it's easy to sync those backups with backups and snapshots of the file store. No more need for complicated item level backup/restore solutions… extend Recycle Bin retention times and remove version retention restrictions…and with compression you're still storing less than before.
Increased SharePoint Performance and Scalability
StoragePoint moves the content BLOB I/O (read/write) from the SQL tier to the SharePoint Web Front-ends, which is more easily and economically scaled-out. …And if SQL is not being burdened with managing large content BLOBs it has more resources to process queries and manage transactions.
