General Availability: Azure NetApp Files Standard Network Features - Edit Volumes

Published date: February 20, 2024

We are announcing the general availability of Standard network features - edit network features for Azure NetApp Files. Standard network features provide you with an enhanced Virtual Networking experience for a seamless and consistent experience along with security posture for Azure NetApp Files. 

You are now able to edit existing Azure NetApp Files volumes and upgrade Basic network features to Standard network features.  

Upon choosing Standard network features, you can now take advantage of the below supported following new features for Azure NetApp Files volumes/delegated subnets: 

  • Increased IP limits for the VNets with Azure NetApp Files volumes on par with VMs to enable customers to provision volumes in their existing topologies/architectures. This eliminates the need for you to rearchitect your network topologies to use Azure NetApp Files for workloads like VDI, AVD or AKS. 
  • Enhanced network security with support for Network Security Groups (NSGs) on the Azure NetApp Files delegated subnet. NSGs on the delegated subnets have been a long-standing requirement from customers to meet enterprise security needs. 
  • Enhanced network control with support for User-defined routes (UDRs) to and from Azure NetApp Files delegated subnets. You can now direct the traffic to and from volumes via your choice of Network Virtual Appliances for traffic inspection. 
  • Connectivity over Active/Active VPN gateway setup for highly available connectivity to ANF from on-prem. 
  • ExpressRoute FastPath connectivity to Azure NetApp Files. FastPath is designed to improve the data path performance (low latency and high bandwidth connectivity) between on-premises network and Azure virtual network. 

This feature is currently available in these supported regions.
