Microsoft Syntex – Big Data Analytics for SharePoint & OneDrive with Project Archimedes

Have you ever worked in a very large enterprise scale SharePoint Online or OneDrive for Business environment?  I mean a Microsoft 365 tenant that contains 10,000 or 20,000 sites, or 50,000 sites or even 100,000 sites? An environment with 10 Million + files? 50,000+ users?

If you have, you understand some challenges in trying to get detailed & timely analytics on the current state, including permissions for all files across all sites, the storage info for all those sites, or which groups are consuming all your space.

Microsoft recently announced that Syntex will provide some exciting new capabilities with Project Archimedes (code name) which will help to get us this data quickly and in a form that we can easily report on, across very large enterprise scale environments. Lets see what Project Archimedes is about!

Can I upload files directly from SharePoint to Teams?

As part of the M365 Voice podcast, we’ll often answer questions from listeners about the Microsoft 365 platform. We recently received a great question from a listen about “Can I upload files directly from SharePoint to Teams?”. We answered the question from several perspectives, and eventually ended up in a discussion about where data is actually stored in Microsoft Teams. We wanted to follow up that session with a blog to share a helpful table with everyone that itemizes the various types of data stored in Teams, share where that data is actually stored and categorize each data type by some of the compliance capabilities that are supported.
