As far as I've understood, it speeds up the "moving blobs" part.
So in the end the overall mailbox move is faster.

But the time the mailbox is unavailable to user (maintenance) because of moving SQL data is still as long as without Centralized Storage.
We had bad experience with 80GB+ mailboxes that were in maintenance for several days.

Can someone confirm this doesn't change with Centralized Storage?
