Simple, distributed, cross-platform file storage
Migrate your data to Azure File storage, then integrate with clients or applications through simple configuration changes. It’s lift-and-shift cloud migration at its easiest, without code changes. Plus, you no longer have to manage on-premise file servers or the associated hardware and expense.
Migrate without changing code
Moving to the cloud can be easier than you think. Migrate your data to Azure File storage, and even your legacy 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.
Why choose Azure File storage?
All cloud file storage is not the same. Azure offers you:
- Windows and Linux support—Connect to Windows or Linux clients for greater flexibility and legacy compatibility.
- Hybrid flexibility—It’s your data, access it however you want, from Azure or on-premises.
- REST API development—Develop lean solutions with web-standard architecture for a variety of clients including mobile.
Scale easily and spend less
Scale your storage on the fly as demand changes, take advantage of lower cloud storage costs, and walk away from on-premise file server management of hardware, capacity, and budget. Plus, make enterprise file sharing easier and more cost-effective.
Access your data, your way
You can host your applications in Azure with virtual machines (VMs), or go hybrid with simultaneous, shared access from multiple on-premise and cloud VMs. Windows, Linux, even mobile—the client platform is your choice, allowing you to manage multiple solutions with varying requirements, for maximum flexibility.
“Running on Azure File Storage puts us ahead of pretty much any solution on the market. It’s a huge competitive advantage, and I think the opportunities are limitless. The addressable market could range anywhere from small and medium-sized business all the way up to the enterprise.”
