File storage

Simple, distributed, cross-platform file storage

Migrate your data to Azure File storage and then integrate with clients or applications through simple configuration changes. It is simple lift-and-shift cloud migration, without code changes. Plus, you no longer have to manage on-premises file servers or the hardware and cost.

Migrate without changing code

Moving to the cloud can be easier than you think. Migrate your data to Azure File storage and even your previous and packaged applications can access it without code changes. Just lift and shift without worrying about file server dependencies and securely mount storage from anywhere using SMB 3.0 encryption.

  • REST API development—develop lean solutions with web-standard architecture for a variety of clients, including mobile.
