So what is RBS and why would I want to use it in order to help my PowerPivot for SharePoint farm? Well, RBS in this particular case is Remote Blob Store which was introduced as part of one of the SQL Server 2008 Feature Packs. As of this post, the current version can be found in the SQL Server 2008 R2 November CTP Feature Pack (search SQL Server 2008 R2 Remote Blob Store). Simply put, remote blob store allows you to put blobs outside of the SQL Server database so you can reduce the performance and manageability impact of storing blobs directly within the database. For more information about RBS, please refer to the documentation linked below
