Azure AppService vs Azure NetApp Files

Hi All,

I would like to migrate some .NET (4.x) workloads that access Azure NetApp Files (ANF) from IIS in a VM to PaaS. What are some options to achieve this?

From the documentation I understood that currently it's only possible to mount Azure [Premium] File Shares in App Service. We chose ANF over Azure Files for performance reasons, so I'm afraid such a downgrade would be inferior for us.

Thanks in advance!

    Hello @metalheart

    You are right, currently it's only possible to mount Azure [Premium] File Shares in App Service. Documentation

    Performance for Azure Files is Up to 100,000 IOPS(up to 80 Gib/s throughput) and Azure NetApp Files is Up to 460,000 IOPS(up to 36 Gib/s throughput).
    Definitely in case of Azure NetApp Files to Azure Files migration, performance could be degraded

    Azure AKS supports integration with Azure NetApp Files, however it would be costly and inefficient for your case.
