Cloud Files [Azure Files]: 2-Day Implementation

Storage Technology Services (Pty) Ltd t/a Nexio

Nexio Cloud Files is a professional services offering that covers the implementation of Azure Files and migration of your file share content to the cloud.

File Servers have long been core to collaboration within most enterprises. While Microsoft SharePoint Online and OneDrive for Business have become popular alternatives, many systems and processes still rely on good old fashioned file shares. But how does an organization leverage the pay-as-you-go pricing, scalability and redundancy that the cloud has become known for while maintaining file shares?

Azure Files offers fully managed cloud file shares that you can access from anywhere via the industry standard Server Message Block (SMB) protocol. Azure file shares can be mounted from cloud or on-premises deployments of Windows, Linux, and macOS.
