New Content Database and RBS Sizing Guidance (Via Russ)

Extract from the original post “I was eagerly awaiting some new content database and RBS storage guidance that I had heard was coming from Microsoft. Of course, they managed to release the new info when I was out on vacation. Then I had planned on transferring my blog to a new hosting provider and didn’t want to put out any new posts using the old system.

So yes, this post is a little late and I’m sure half of the planet has already blogged about this, but since storage and RBS are something that I’ve talked a lot about, I feel like I need to add my 2 cents to this one. What am I talking about? I’m glad you asked…

The Microsoft SharePoint Team blog has published some new guidance regarding supported content database sizes. The provide a summary of the changes and some nice background info in this blog postwhere they did a VERY good job highlighting the changes and pointing you to the new supported limit statements referenced in TechNet. So in the sections below, I want to just mention a couple of things related to the new guidance.
