NFS 4.1 support for Azure Files is now in preview

September 15, 2020

Azure Files is a distributed cloud file system serving Server Messaging Block (SMB) and REST protocols. Azure Files enables customers to easily lift and shift their legacy workloads to the cloud without any modifications or changes in technology. SMB works on both Windows and UNIX operating systems for most use cases. Because some applications are written for POSIX compliant file systems, our customers wanted to have the same great experience on a fully POSIX compatible NFS file system. Azure Files support for NFS v4.1 protocol is now in preview.
