sharepoint document blob DB storage

  Asked By: Krista    Date: Oct 19    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 837

My boss has asked me to check something and I'm just finding it
difficult to find an article that confirms it.



I believe that sharepoint stores each version of a document as it's own
blob entry in the database.

(eg upload 3 versions of 10mb document will take up 30mb of storage).

That it is does not employ any fancy single instance storage (eg as in
the exchange DB ) or delta only changes between versions.



Can anyone confirm this for me?

The ability to have the blobs stored outside of SQL Server will be part of
Service Pack 1.

Yes, each version  is a complete version.

So, 3 versions  of a 10MB doc will take 30MB of storage. Bad for storage,
good for restores when the user does the ctrl+A,backspace,save combo

Maybe with the next version  of SQL and Sharepoint they can be a little
bit more fancy with the storage  subsystem.
