SharePoint 2013 "Shredded Storage" a New Feature

A new feature "Shredded Storage" is here to significantly Improve SharePoint Storage utilization. Here is how it works - As you probably know, documents stored in a document library or as attachments are stored as binary large objects (BLOBs) in the content database by default.

Each new version of these documents results in a new BLOB for that document hence Consuming a lot of storage. What SharePoint 2013 Shredded storage does here is it saves only the differences, not entire BLOBs for each version. Only changed shreds are added to the storage footprint of that document. Shreds that have not changed from the previous version are simply “associated” with both versions.
