Course Overview
Hi everyone. My name is John Savill, and welcome to my course, Configure Microsoft Azure Files. I'm a principal cloud solutions architect, helping many of the largest organizations in their adoption of Azure. Nearly every organization uses file shares today for documents and maybe even enterprise workloads. And as the cloud is embraced, what does that really mean for those file share requirements? In this course, we're going to explore the capabilities and use of Azure Files. Some of the major topics that we will cover include the capabilities of Azure Files, the different authentication and network integration options available, and then integrating Azure Files with our on‑premises SMB file servers using Azure File Sync. By the end of this course, you'll be able to utilize Azure Files in Azure and in a hybrid environment. Before beginning the course, you should be familiar with the basics of file services in Windows Server. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn file services in Azure with the Configure Microsoft Azure course, at Pluralsight.
