BlueThread Announces StoragePoint for SharePoint 2010

LAS VEGAS, Oct. 19 /PRNewswire/ — (at the Microsoft(®) SharePoint(®)
Conference); BlueThread Technologies(®), Inc. (BlueThread) announced
StoragePoint(®) for SharePoint 2010. Attendees at the conference can preview a
demonstration of the 2010 version at the BlueThread booth.  StoragePoint
enables organizations to realize at least a 95% reduction in the size of their
SharePoint content databases by relocating content BLOBs (Binary Large
Objects) out of the SQL database onto virtually any Cloud-based or on-premise
storage platform. It improves SharePoint manageability, scalability,
performance and security without any sacrifice to functionality or user
experience.

“We wanted to provide our clients with unprecedented SharePoint 2010 BLOB
storage flexibility,” says Rob D’Oria, BlueThread’s CTO and co-Founder. “With
StoragePoint 2010, you will be able to create policy-based storage profiles
which manage content BLOBs at a very granular level.  It also leverages both
SharePoint 2010 EBS and RBS provider interfaces. Clients can choose to use
them independently, side-by- side or leverage our out-of-the-box the EBS to
RBS migration capability.”

D’Oria continues, “Organizations don’t have to wait for 2010 in order to
realize the benefits of StoragePoint. WSS 3.0 and MOSS 2007 customers can
install StoragePoint within their existing SharePoint deployment while taking
comfort that a no-hassle upgrade to 2010 is already in place.”

Mark Wiley, Chesapeake Energy’s IT Supervisor for Document Management &
Collaboration said; “Our current StoragePoint deployment reduced our content
databases from 450 gigabytes to less than 20, a reduction of over 95%.  Not
only did it dramatically improve SharePoint manageability, it surprisingly
increased performance as well.  As an early adopter of Microsoft technologies,
we are looking forward to SharePoint 2010 and leveraging StoragePoint.”

“BlueThread is a great partner and StoragePoint is a perfect complement to our
SharePoint 2010 ECM solution,” said Ron Cameron; President and CEO of
Knowledgelake, a BlueThread partner. “StoragePoint enables our customers who
are scanning millions, or even ten-of-millions of documents with our software
to manage them simply and easily within SharePoint.”

Customers can download a 30 day, no-cost trial version at StoragePoint’s
