Klaas Langhout joins Scott Hanselman to show Azure File Sync for centralizing file services into Azure, which reduces the cost and complexity of managing islands of data while preserving existing app compatibility and performance. In addition, it provides multi-site access to the same data, tiering of less frequently used data off-premise, and integrated backup and rapid restoration.

    We are very excited about this announcement as it will allow us to setup a server in Azure, sync files to it using azure file share sync, install myworkdrive software and use it access file shares remotely or during a disaster. We can then access windows file shares over https port 443  from any location worldwide (Azure File Sharing only supports access over smb port 445 which is typically blocked from most remote locations).

    @wanpath: Wanpath, glad to hear.  Yes, syncing files from/to a VM in Azure to an Azure File share is definitely in scope.   I hadn't heard about myworkdrive prior: am reading up on what they offer.  Thanks for the feedback!
