A large estate of enterprise applications running file-storage doesn’t have much of a choice but to run on expensive on-premises infrastructure. Migrating to cloud is hard, and often falls short of customers' high expectations around performance and data protection.
Enter Azure NetApp Files (ANF) – the industry’s first, bare-metal, file-based storage service seamlessly integrated into Microsoft Azure. ANF offers unmatched performance, rich data management, and only takes minutes to get up and running. Unlike other offerings, Azure NetApp Files is an Azure first-party service - sold and supported by Microsoft.
This session provides a brief introduction to Azure NetApp Files, including use cases and demo, and then goes deeper on the capabilities and roadmap. Top workloads include: HPC, lift-and-shift of complex file-based apps, and SAP HANA.
