In this quick video I walk you through the steps of setting up an SMB 3 file share in Azure Storage. There is no VM needed! This is a great way to share files and store backups. If you come up with a cool use - please share it in the comments.
Here is a summary of the steps:
- Create a general storage account
- From the Files services create the share
- Configure the quota on the share
- Access the share.
This quick and easy way to setup a file share on the internet takes only a couple of minutes. It is also inexpensive as you only pay for the File Storage and Egress Bandwidth. At the time of this posting this should equate to about 8 cents a month for a gigabyte of data. Nice!
