Load Balanced Azure File Sync'd Servers

Regular Visitor

Hello All -

 

We're in the process of retiring our StorSimple.  Currently we have a single server presenting an iSCSI mounted volume to users.  This works "okay" but when the server goes down for patches, folks are out of service.  I'd like something a little more highly available and cloud oriented like our StorSimple.

 

I'd like to move to a storage vip, that fronts two file servers that are synced to the same Azure Files location.  Will that work?  Have others tried it?  I've attached a crude Visio diagram.  All users are on-prem for this, and the servers are in the same location.  The goal is just more up-time and less "Oh bummer, gotta be down for patches"
