We are in the middle of planning a Sharepoint infrastructure to handle various tasks. One of the tasks will be storage/index of invoices. Ideally we would like to keep the files (pdfs) out of the Sharepoint database on our existing file stores, but there seems to be conflicting information about this.
I have read the stuff about using external blobs, but they need to be kept on the same server as the database.
Do any one know ifs its possible to hold the file outside the database? We are going to use Sharepoint 2010.
