Very vague, but it seems it will be possible to use different storage than SQL Server, probably starting with SP1. Might it be in conjunction with SQL Server 2008 Katmai?

SQL Server "Katmai" 2008 will be good to Sharepoint  !!!

 

Quoting from SQL Server "Katmai" 2008 White Paper:

 

FileStream data

The SQL Server FileStream object allows large binary data to be stored in the file system yet remain an integral part of the database with transactional consistency. This enables the scale out of large binary data to be managed by the database and yet stored on more cost-effective storage and file systems.

Sparse columns

Sparse columns allow users to store object models onto relational data without undergoing large space costs. They also allows users to build complex content management applications with the underlying database.

I often get asked the difference between NLB based services (Web Services, Remoting, WCF) and Digipede

 

Digipede

  • not limited by NLB - load balancing on real time CPU load
  • not limited by different computer hardware -can run on 1 CPU PC AND 32 way-servers
  • uses both server AND client (XP, Vista)
  • Publish & Subscribe architecture doesn' overload server
  • Digipede can run in background, on idle or when user is logged off
  • Incredible scalability up to 1000 servers

 

Windows Network Load Balancing (NLB)
  • limited to NLB - based on connection load balancing thus not "tuned" for CPU workloads
  • needs (almost) identical server hardware
  • exclusively server based
  • suffer from peak workloads
  • difficult to control workflow on single computer (Round Robin)
  • limited scalability in one cluster (32 way)

 

More info (in Italian) on Decatec and in English on www.digipede.net
