Azure Files Integration Now Available on Files.com

Old Dogs, New Tricks  

Microsoft’s Azure Files provides a great way to implement legacy Network Shares and File Shares in the cloud.  

Users and systems requiring access to Shares using the SMB and NFS protocols can continue to access their files and folders the same way they’ve always used. With Microsoft’s Azure Files, the files and folders are now stored in the Azure Cloud rather than on the local network or the corporate data center.  

However, the SMB and NFS protocols impose limits and restrictions on access. Users and systems are typically limited to corporate machines that must be on the corporate network, which can prohibit the ability to work remotely or the ability of external partners to access files or folders securely.  

Files.com adds new capabilities, access options, and security options to your Azure Files shares, providing you with new ways to automate your business processes and extend access and integration options to your partners and customers.  

Use the latest and greatest Files.com features to complement the legacy features of Azure Files.
