BlueThread has recently announced version 2 of StoragePoint.  This product supports external storage in SharePoint, and BlueThread is talking about how StoragePoint can significantly reduce the SQL Server storage required for your SharePoint storage. 

As StoragePoint mvoes the SharePoint items into the external storage area, the items can also be compressed and/or encrypted.

Michael Gannotti has a series of video webcasts about SharePoint topics.  His latest covers BlueThread StoragePoint and may be useful to enterprises who have concerns about large amounts of storage within their SharePoint and SQL Server systems. 

In this video, Michael is joined by Rob D’Oria, of BlueThread, who walks us through an installation and configuration of StoragePoint.   Watch Michael’s video, "BackSeat Driving With Michael – BlueThread StoragePoint.”
