My experience with SharePoint 2013 so far…too good.

After such a long time I am back to my own blog ,all these days I was busy with Technet and MSDN blogs. I am exploring currently SharePoint 2013 for couple of RFIs. So decided to write about my SharePoint 2013 experience so far

  1. Shredded Storage
  2. SQL Improvements
  3. Cache Service
  4. Request Management
  5. Themes
  6. Sharing

Shredded storage

Shredded storage is a new data platform improvement in SharePoint 2013 related to the management of large binary objects (I.e. BLOBS such as Microsoft PowerPoint Presentations, Microsoft Word Documents, etc.).

Shredded Storage is both improves I/O and reduces compute utilization when making incremental changes to document or storing documents in SharePoint 2013.

Shredded Storage at its most basic is designed to ensure the write cost of updating a document is proportional to the size of the change, and not of the file itself.
