Heya folks, Ned here again. I recently wrote up all the changes that are now available to Windows Server Azure Edition - or are coming soon - and a number of them help out in file server and storage scenarios. Storage Replica compression, new SMB over QUIC options, hotpatching of Desktop Experience file servers, running edge file servers on Azure Stack HCI instead of just Azure, etc. Be sure to check it out at:

And, of course, Windows Server 2022 non-Azure Edition brings its own goodies to this space, in areas such as SMB Compression, SMB security changes, new Storage Migration Service options, etc. read more about all those at:
