Shredded Storage new feature in SharePoint 2013

Here we will discuss about another new exciting feature of SharePoint 2013. Before reading this you can check out some new features, as well as you can check about Client object model in SharePoint 2013 and SharePoint 2013 search video tutorial also.

In this article we will discuss about Shredded Storage. Shredded Storage applies to how data and documents are stored in the SQL Server database.  In all previous versions of SharePoint, for every version of a file that was saved, there was a complete copy of that document - the entire thing.  For example, if you had a 1 MB file with 10 versions, it consumed at least 10 MB of space in the SQL Server database.  With Shredded Storage, SharePoint only stores the changes in subsequent versions.  Therefore, in SharePoint 2013, this 1 MB file may have 10 versions that only consume 2.2 MB of space (vs. 10 MB).

Not only does this save space, but since the overall package is smaller, there will be increases in speed for retrieving documents.

So over all this is a very good useful feature.
