Get up and running with Azure Files, which offers fully managed file shares in the cloud.
Azure Files offers fully managed file shares in the cloud. These highly scalable file shares, or network file shares, are accessible via Server Message Block (SMB) and REST APIs and can help to simplify cloud development. In this installment of Azure Storage for Developers, learn what you need to know to get up and running with Azure Files. Instructor Anton Delsink details how to create a new storage account in the Azure portal and protect your stored data using stored access policies and shared access signatures. He then dives into the Azure Files service, explaining how to connect to and query files, access files from both SMB and REST APIs concurrently, leverage the optimized data transfer utility AzCopy, and more.
