Azure File Sync replicates files from your on-premises Windows Server to an Azure file share. With Azure File Sync, you don’t have to choose between the benefits of cloud and the benefits of your on-premises file server – you can have both! Azure File Sync enables you to centralize your file services in Azure while maintaining local access to your data.
We’re just getting started!
For us, the general availability of Azure File Sync is just the start of the innovations we plan to bring to Azure Files and Azure File Sync. We have a whole series of new features and incremental improvements to deliver throughout the summer and fall, including support for and tighter integration with Windows Server 2019! Stay tuned – we think you’ll like what we have for you! See you at Ignite!
