With over 700GB on a single content database the project seemed daunting, but by harnessing Metalogix’s suite of solutions for SharePoint migration the upgrade was extremely efficient. For Knight Frank’s SharePoint content database, Metalogix StoragePoint externalizes SharePoint content Binary Large Objects (BLOBs), so that they may be stored on less expensive or more appropriate storage systems. This means their SQL clusters can be right-sized for optimal performance and the size of the SharePoint content database can be dramatically reduced while still maintaining critical metadata in the SQL Server SharePoint to ensure content is easily discovered and retrieved for ease of management within SharePoint.
- Comprehensive feature set
- Common user interface
- Strong SharePoint integration
