Tired of constantly adding costly disks to your file storage? Looking for better performance with unlimited expandability? Interested in one file storage solution that addresses production, archive, backup AND DR? The Hybrid File Storage solution addresses these by providing a fast, local cache for frequently accessed files, and low cost Azure storage for the rest of your files. And because a full set of your files are in Azure, it provides an archive, backup and disaster recovery solution as well.

Lower Storage Costs
