Remote Blob Storage in Sql Server 2008 R2 for SharePoint 2010 enviornment

We have SharePoint 2010 environment that uses SQL Server 2008 R2 as backend content database etc. We are trying to implement large file storage in SharePoint using Remote Blob Storage on one of the file share drive on a remote server.

We started using Avepoint DocAve6 connector for the RBS. The problem with this tool is it uses SharePoint API. We enforced in SharePoint Central Admin 50 MB is the maximum size for the file to upload, so DocAve6 follows the same rule even though I try to upload greater than 50 MB file.

I want to see does SQL Server 2008 R2 RBS behaves the same way or just ignores the sharepoint set limit and allow to have the links appear in the SharePoint document library for large files greater than 50 MB. Any documentation around this piece is helpful.

My understanding of RBS is that SQL can use it to store the large BLOBs to a remote storage device. You still have to have an interface into SQL for getting the files into the BLOBs and this is what SharePoint/AvePoint do. Since you are enforcing the 50MB limit you shouldn't see any files in SharePoint that are larger than 50MB regardless of if they are stored on the RBS or not, because no one was able to upload a file larger that 50MB.

It sounds as though you are hoping that linking RBS to your network share will allow you to display the contents of this shared drive in a SharePoint library, I don't think that is how RBS is intended to work.
