Liberty University Offloads 69 Percent Of Unstructured SharePoint Content With Metalogix StoragePoint

Large Private University Dramatically Improves SharePoint Performance, Scalability, Fault Tolerance, and Reduces Backup Time by Reducing BLOBs Stored in SQL Server Databases


WASHINGTON, DC, August 23, 2011 – Metalogix Software, the leading provider in content lifecycle management (CLM) solutions for Microsoft® SharePoint®, Exchange®, and legacy environments, announced today that Liberty University has purchased its Metalogix StoragePoint solution to manage its SharePoint content database. As the largest and fastest growing Christian university in the world, Liberty needed to be able to manage the business processes of the university, including finance administration and financial aid, as well as its education information knowledge database. With their SQL database bursting at the seams, they turned to Metalogix StoragePoint to alleviate the issue.

“Before we selected the Metalogix solution, our backups would take several hours, but with StoragePoint - bam it’s done,” said Adkins. “I don’t have to worry about backup windows, or the protection and recovery of our content.”

Liberty University offers more than 60 accredited programs of study to its over 72,000 distance learning students as well as its 12,000 students on campus. It also employs another 5,000 faculty and staff. With close to 200GB of storage in their SQL database, backups were becoming too complicated. Optimizing their SharePoint storage to improve performance and data protection processes was their answer. Liberty began to seek a solution that would minimize its unstructured SharePoint data or binary large objects (BLOBs) stored in its SQL database and by selecting and leveraging Metalogix StoragePoint they were able to do so. 

StoragePoint enables Liberty to keep its unstructured BLOB content such as PDFs, JPEG images and Microsoft Word documents out of SharePoint’s content databases and offload them onto virtually any mix of NAS or SAN storage – on premises or in the cloud. Just a couple of hours after installation, the university began to see immediate ROI by enabling it to leverage more cost-effective storage without sacrificing performance, functionality or user experience. 

Now that Liberty has its SharePoint infrastructure optimized for continued growth, it is planning its migration from SharePoint 2007 to 2010. So pleased with the product quality and knowledgeable support team, the university came back to Metalogix for its migration solution. They will be using Metalogix Migration Manager for SharePoint to streamline the upgrade providing them a comprehensive content lifecycle management solution.

"The amount of reduction Liberty University experienced with their SQL content database is what most of our customers experience once they offload," said Steven Murphy, CEO of Metalogix. "We offer the most seamless and transparent solution on the market.  We are so glad Liberty was pleased enough with StoragePoint to now utilize Metalogix Migration Manager for SharePoint, too."
