DFS Namespaces (Distributed File System) is a role service in Windows Server that enables you to group shared folders located on different servers into one or more logically structured namespaces.
DFS Namespaces is a powerful Windows Server role service that enables the logical structuring of shared folders located on different servers into a single namespace. This centralized management and operation of Windows CIFS shares provides organizations with a virtual view of shared folders, where a single path leads to files located on multiple servers running Azure. With DFS Replication, high-availability replication rings can be added to on-premises or cloud servers, ensuring greater uptime. Sentinel offers a comprehensive DFS Namespace deployment service, including business outcome definition, environment analysis, and customer blueprint design. Our experts analyze the current Active Directory and application(s), review Microsoft licensing and security requirements, configure the DFS Namespace service with ReFS, and provide storage migration up to 1TB of file data in Azure. Additionally, we configure up to 10 CIFS shares within DFS Namespace, validate and demonstrate the service, and provide a high-level overview for administration and maintenance.
