Azure Blob storage—NFS 3.0 protocol support generally available

Published date: June 23, 2021

Azure Blob Storage, our object storage platform for storing large-scale data helps customers run their applications using a wide range of protocols. With multi-protocol support, customers can run their applications on a single storage platform with no application rewrites necessary, therefore eliminating data silos.

Starting today, Network File System (NFS) 3.0 protocol support for Azure Blob Storage is generally available.

Azure Blob Storage is the only storage platform that supports NFS 3.0 protocol over object storage natively (no gateway or data copying required), with object storage economics. The data stored in your storage account with NFS support is billed at the same rate as blob storage capacity charges with no minimal provisioned capacity required. The flexible pay-as-you-go pricing model gives you an extremely low total cost of ownership (TCO). Learn more about Azure Blob Storage pricing.
