Azure storage


while using on-premise server you can configure folder redirection. This redirects all files of users to a particular folder or directory irrespective of where the file was saved. I want to implement this with azure storage because the company wants a files to be stored on cloud and not on premises

    @Christopher Akpojotor Itobor Here is an option available for Azure Fileshares that can help you with indirection between the UNC path of your file shares and the actual file shares themselves.

    "Distributed File Systems Namespaces, commonly referred to as DFS Namespaces or DFS-N, is a Windows Server server role that is widely used to simplify the deployment and maintenance of SMB file shares in production. DFS Namespaces is a storage namespace virtualization technology, which means that it enables you to provide a layer of indirection between the UNC path of your file shares and the actual file shares themselves. DFS Namespaces works with SMB file shares, agnostic of those file shares are hosted: it can be used with SMB shares hosted on an on-premises Windows File Server with or without Azure File Sync, Azure file shares directly, SMB file shares hosted in Azure NetApp Files or other third-party offerings, and even with file shares hosted in other clouds."
