Hi Everyone,

If I'd like to deploy SharePoint 2010 Foundation with Express DB (no SQL Server) what's the limitation ?

and suppose i have implemented BLOB extender from freeware 3rd party http://www.avepoint.com/sharepoint-storage-extender-docave/ does that means i can deploy more than 4 GB of data and it should perform faster since the SQL Express is not loaded with BLOB (document binaries).

Can anyone clarify this matter please ?

Thanks.

Yes, you have it correctly.  SQL Express is limited to 4 GB of data.  With the BLOB extender, your file content is not being stored in SQL and therefore increases your capacity.

It is not necessarily faster to go External BLOB vs SQL Storage, it all depends on your infrastructure.  You probably won't notice much of a difference in performance if everything is setup correctly.
