Simple, Azure Native Service for Linux File Services
Azure NetApp Files is Microsoft’s fully managed, high-performance, cloud-native file service. Available directly in the Azure portal, it is delivered and supported by Microsoft but built on NetApp technology. The service delivers both Linux NFS (v3 and v4.1), and Windows SMB protocol support, advanced data services, and integrates directly into the Azure service infrastructure, including AzureCLI.
Watch this quick demo video to see how you can achieve simple, Azure-native Linux file services, including how to deploy a new volume in seconds.
Performance So Good, You’ll Think You’re on Premises
Linux file services are extremely dependent on the performance of the storage service in use for any given workload. Many applications require a high-level SLA to maintain peak operability and performance levels.
Azure NetApp Files brings extreme performance–up to 4.5 GBps per volume–with sub-millisecond latencies to address even your most critical business applications.
Migrate More Linux Workloads to Azure
When using a cloud-based file share, it’s important to find a solution for migrating data to the cloud without having to rewrite the applications that depend on the data. If applications need to be rearchitected or refactored, the enterprise must commit significant amounts of time and money to design and test the “new” applications to ensure that the end user isn’t negatively affected.
With Azure NetApp Files, organizations save hundreds or thousands of hours without re-architecting for the cloud. Migrate Linux, Oracle, SQL, and other enterprise workloads in minutes. Organizations can also migration SAP landscapes to Azure, as Azure NetApp Files is certified for HANA production scale-out requirements.
Get Data Security and Protection with Guaranteed Business Continuity
When it comes to running a Linux enterprise file service, any disruption in normal operation can negatively impact the business. Whether an outage is caused by a disaster or through an update process, it is essential to ensure the availability of the file share, with zero downtime and no data loss.
Azure NetApp Files provides your business with peace of mind with:
- Built-in data management and NetApp SnapShot™ technology to protect and recover data without added capacity and cost
- Built on dedicated, highly-available infrastructure in the Azure data center to meet stringent RPO and RTO requirements
- Always-on at-rest data encryption
