SharePoint is an excellent collaboration platform – so good, in fact, that many organizations see extremely rapid adoption. But, as user adoption increases, so does the amount of data that must be stored in SharePoint, including large files and multiple versions of files. While rapid adoption indicates effective collaboration, this content explosion can easily outstrip SharePoint’s basic storage configuration. This causes an outcry both from end users, who complain about SharePoint’s slow performance, and SQL DBAs, who protest that SharePoint is taking up too much expensive server space and processing power. All of this can lead to dissatisfaction with a once-loved platform.
