Azure file shares are used as serverless file shares.
Azure file shares are used as serverless file shares. Azure Files can completely replace or supplement traditional on-premises file servers or network-attached storage devices. With Azure file shares and AD DS authentication, you can migrate data to Azure Files. Azure Files makes it easy to "lift and shift" applications that expect a file share to store application or user data to the cloud. You can use Azure Files as storage for backups or for disaster recovery to improve business continuity. Data that's stored on Azure file shares isn't affected by disasters that might affect on-premises locations. With Azure File Sync, Azure file shares can replicate to Windows Server, either on-premises or in the cloud. This replication improves performance and distributes caching of data to where it's being used.
