Azure Unblogged - Replace your file server with a serverless Azure file share!

You can already extend your on-premises file servers into Azure using Azure File Sync, but now you can completely decommission those old on-premises file servers and replace them with serverless Azure file shares. With the new capabilities, the Azure Files team announced this week; you can now integrate your Azure File share in Active Directory and your on-premises network.

 

In this video, I had the chance to talk to Will Gries from the Azure Files team, to give you a quick look at how to domain join your storage account to your on-premises domain, and configure Azure networking to access your Azure file share from on-premises.

 

 

If you want to learn more about Azure Files and how you can start using Azure Files to replace your on-premises file server, check out the following documentation:

 

I hope you enjoyed the video if you have any questions feel free to leave a comment. You can also watch previous Azure Unblogged videos here:
