STEALTH Content Store for SharePoint using Windows Azure - "SharePoint® Unlimited"

What is the STEALTH Content Store for SharePoint?

STEALTH Content Store for Microsoft SharePoint is the industry’s first truly seamless integrated SharePoint Content Store solution for Microsoft Windows Azure. STEALTH Software extends the value and performance of Microsoft SharePoint while optimizing storage and server resources using Microsoft Windows Azure. Exploding data volumes make companies quickly run out of Microsoft SQL server resources which means that additional Microsoft SQL servers must be deployed resulting in information silos and overall a higher management effort. When this is the situation at your company, STEALTH Content Store for Microsoft SharePoint can save your company money in terms of license fees, management effort and additional hardware.

Typically, as much as 80 percent of data for an enterprise-scale deployment of Microsoft SharePoint consists of file-based content that are stored as BLOB data. These BLOB objects comprise data associated with Microsoft SharePoint files. However, maintaining large quantities of BLOB data in a Microsoft SQL Server database is a suboptimal use of SQL Server resources. You can achieve more value at lower cost with equivalent efficiency by using an external data store like Microsoft Windows Azure to contain BLOB data.
