EMEA Black Belt Technology Solution Professional for Azure,
Principal Product Manager,
Background: A large estate of enterprise applications are file-based, that don’t have much of a choice but to run on expensive on-premises infrastructure. Migrating to cloud is hard, and often falls short of customers' high expectations around performance, reliability, compatibility, and integrated data management.
Enter Azure NetApp Files – the industry’s first, file-based storage service seamlessly integrated into Microsoft Azure, and powered by NetApp’s industry leading ONTAP OS.
Azure NetApp Files (ANF), the result of a deep partnership between Microsoft and NetApp is currently in preview. Azure NetApp Files offers unmatched performance, rich data management, quick and simple setup and deployment. Unlike other offerings, Azure NetApp Files is an Azure first-party (Azure native) cloud service that is sold and supported by Microsoft.
About this session: This session introduces Azure NetApp Files, including use cases and a demo, and then goes deeper into the capabilities and roadmap as the service continues to evolve. We will discuss some of the recent / upcoming developments around ANF preview including:
Coming: Preview availability in Europe West (US East and US West 2 are already active)
Coming: Support for SMB tier (NFS v 3.0 is already supported)
