  1. This is awesome Adam … I'm new to Azure Files (and MS Azure for that matter). We are looking to migrate an on-premise file server that has over 4 million files which totals about 4TB of data. It's the typical office share for about 200 users. Do you have any real-world experience as to performance? Since it's going over the Internet (versus LAN), are there speed issues when accessing large files (say a file larger than 20megs)?

    This was a great video, I really enjoyed watching it!

  2. Thanks Adam, it was a great learning on file shares. If possible can you please make a video on 2nd option as well where on-prem files will be syncing up with Azure file share (which needs installation of file sync agent at on-prem).

  3. Good vid although I don't know why you bothered standing up a new VM just to test? Any internet connected computer should be able to connect directly to the SMB share as long as firewall/permissions on the storage account allows it!

  4. Hey Adam

    One thing i haven't fully understood yet is the point of File Sync if you are going to implement it in a hybdrid or cloud only enviroment.
    For example
    – If i have onPrem servers, where costumers are running CAD Applications, why should i Sync over all data to cloud?
    I can see why, if we are talking about backup, but if so. Azure Backup should make more sence woudn't it?

  5. Is there a different between Azure Storage Account files and Azure Files that we are talking about in this video?

  6. Hi Adam – is there a way to sync sharepoint files with azure files so when file or folder created on Sharepoint it auto sync with azure file

  7. Its been so long since I watched one of your videos, it is always good to be back for more, thanks for the awesome contents, you are still the best Adam!

  8. Great video, Thanks! I setup a file share to use between two different VMS. I used an http: connection with a mapped drive. It was slow when using it with a an Access database. Is there a speed or latency difference between connecting with the Azure string or connecting using http:?

  9. Hi Adam! if i want to connect my local machine (No virtual machine) to file shares ¿how i can do it?, i do the same steps, but when i try to connect, my local machine can't reach the azure file share, it works well when i use a vm inside the my virtual network, anycase, i am trying to created a vpn, each user has to connect to the file shares system from home, can you help me? do you have any tutorial about that? i think it i need an azure end point, but how i can connect with my vpn (site to point)?

  12. Hello Adam,
    Thank you for sharing your knowledge.
    Do you have any live video demo plan for labs on you tube?
    I wish to see that one. It would be really better for us. Could you please arrange such plan.

  13. Once again, a wonderful video Adam. Your style of making videos and the animations that you use is commendable. Make it so easy for the viewer to understand the concept. Thanks !
