Upload/Download very large documents (> 500mb)

  Asked By: Rey    Date: Dec 10    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1958

we have to upload and download documents which can easily extend
500mb(requirement). Except for the traffic I'm not really worring about the
download part. The upload part is what i'm uncertain about. Even if I raise
timeout and max document size, i have the feeling this not what sharepoint was
designed for.

So my questions are
- Is it sufficient to raise the timeout and max document size?
- would the windows explorer access / webdav behave differently
- does the active x control (multiple upload) perform better (binary upload)

To answer your question the max upload  size is yes by default set to
50MB and you can raise the bar a little on this depending your
Hardware and network speeds. The highest I have seen being uploaded
98% correctly all the time is 100-150MB files. I would not really go
over this mark being that you might lose the integrity of the file
(it might be corrupt). As for the multiple  upload option this
performs the same as if you were to upload one big file once you
start reaching the upload size  threshold you will run into problems.
