RBS custom storage

Jul 25, 2012 at 11:08 AM

Is it possible to customise RBS code to store BLOBs to different sources. For example, I want to save *.xls files to Sharepoint database, and *.doc files to Sharepoint, *pdf files to one RBS location, *.html files to RBS but different location on disk?

yes, you can.

you can write your RBS Provider to do this

I'm a bit late with this reply, but was browsing anyway...

In order to do this you would have to inspect the files individually (and rely on mime types or similar) as the metadata is not included so not really a great solution. Another option would be to use a webpart that appends data to the end of the file that you can read and strip before offloading, but again it's not a brilliant solution.
