Remote Blob Storage with SQL 2012 - Only for Sharepoint?

Hi,

we are looking for a way to store users file on remote storage and have it all indexed in SQL using filestream.
The first option that we've tried is to use filestream with file table, however, the problem is that file table can only export UNC and not use existing UNC that is shared from other servers.
So I've come to read about RBS.
The question is if RBS can solve this issue, so I can store the users file on remote UNC and have it indexed in SQL, or is this feature is limited only to Sharepoint?

Thank you in advance

RBS is limited to SharePoint and all its config is done through SharePoint Management Shell, however you can make a full text indexing:

Alright,
so since RBS is limited to SharePoint and filestream is limited to physical storage, both are useless for my needs.

Do you know if and how I can achieve it?
The topology is simple:
1 Windows File Server with published share  - \\share\folder
1 SQL server.

So it should be the: users storing files in \\share\folder.
Everything will be written in DB but the files will be stored not on SQL.

Please define precisely what you want to store, how you want to access it from the client side and what exactly SQL Server should index..
