Microsoft Azure recommendation

Occasional Visitor


We want to migrate our business data from our local server to cloud to ensure an everywhere connectivity . My concern is to unterstand how we can move our local data (file sharing, excel, word) from local to cloud knowing the we have currently 12TB of working data, and how long it will take to do this task knowing that i cant afford more than a one day data unavailability .

Also, i want the same data to be accessible by 200 employees as a shared data from their local computers including a specific access rights (Read only, RW) that i define later . 


Please help me to understand the adequate and best solution to succeed this test .

You can use import/Export Service to ship large amount of data. Just copy the data and then upload changes using internet.


Then use Azure File Share to provide access to employees.


Permissions will not be possible to define as of now but its planned.
