Shared storage device suitable for use in Premiere Pro available in Azure

아롬 황 236 Reputation points

We are looking for a shared storage device suitable for use in Premiere Pro available in Azure.

Several Premiere Pro users will work simultaneously using the SMB protocol on one shared storage device.
As suitable services, I think of Azure Files and Azure Netapp Files at the storage account premium.

However, Azure Files is expected to lack IOPS performance.
Azure Netapp Files are too expensive and cannot be checked if they are suitable.

Are there any other suitable solutions commonly used, such as solutions installed as VMs?

    @아롬 황 You might consider utilizing a VM to host a SMB file share for performance then utilizing Azure File Sync to sync data to Azure Files. This would allow you to have locally available data for higher performance while utilizing the advantages of Azure Files for reliability. For detailed information about Azure File Sync you can refer to the planning guide.

    Hope this helps! Let us know if you have further questions or any issues.
