I did not squeeze into the 17 percent that got it right... But thanks for the challenge!


Despite my "waist size challenge", I was able to squeeze into the 17 percent, but only because we have been looking at FileTables for a couple of projects here.

If one answer says "it uses A" and another says "it uses A and B" and the last one is correct, I would assume the first one is also correct.

As I don't have any of my production systems on 2012 yet, I couldn't actually test out the functionality, but it useful to know about the additional features for when we do migrate. The VARBINARY(MAX) option was a bit unfare as that information isn't readily available in the MSDN page, and if the inclusion of VARBINARY(MAX) is simply because the basis of the FILESTREAM type is VARBINARY(MAX) then isn't it inclusive when referring to the FILESTREAM type alone?

But to reiterate, it is a good question that helps many of us to expand our knowledge of the new SQL Server 2012 features, so thank you :-)

61% chosen - It is used in conjunction with the FILESTREAM data type;


It seems many people had the idea that FILESTREAM is a data type and not a column property.

Thanks for the question.

It seems many people had the idea that FILESTREAM is a data type and not a column property.

Or that many people focused on the keywords in the answer options and hence missed the subtle change between the options that list FILESTREAM data type and FILESTREAM storage type.

That's what happened to me - luckily, I knew that I had to pick three, not four options, so I picked the "most correct" of those two. It was only after reading this discussion that I went back to the list of questions and answers and noticed the subtle difference.
