Azure Files VS Azure NetApp Files

Hi,

Has anyone tested both as a replacement for on-prem file servers?

Any feedback? (Azure files/ Azure File Sync/Azure NetApp Files)

We run 7 servers on 3 continents, with 13TB of data.

Our on-prem Internet speeds:

A- 2GB (~200users)

B- 500GB(~30 users)

C- 140GB (~100users)

We are wondering if:

1- NetApp offers an on-prem "Sync" option as Azure Files does.
2- Which servie would better answer our needs as stated above.

@SoheilSamNahid-1670 Welcome to Microsoft Q&A Platform. Thanks for posting the query.

You can refer to this page to understand the various Azure storage options and the scenario each option is best suited for. I would recommended Azure Files based on your scenario.


Hope this helps!

Thank you very much for the answer, it was indeed helpful.

One important question for us is knowing if "Sync" option(Azure Files Sync) which is basically extending on-prem file shares to the Azure is available in NetApp Files as well.
