    Azure NetApp Files

    In my opinion, I would say it is more suitable to huge workloads, where you really needs the reliability and performance that a Netapp storage provides to you, larger share sizes, etc. Use cases where you really needs to store large amounts of non-structured data.It is not a cheap solution, I mean, you can find other options to store your data on the Cloud at smaller prices. So, for small companies, or companies that depends mostly on web-applications, or don't have such a specific requirements, I would not go with Azure Netapp Files.

    Well suited when your product is used by millions of customers and less appropriate where the application is based on performance or execution speed

    Pros

    Azure NetApp Files

    • We have found that it scales very well. In some cases we had a large existing storage infrastructure and were able to migrate it while other times we started from scratch with low storage demands and Azure NetApp Files fit the bill each time.
    • We have been impressed with the replication capabailities.
    • The read and write speed when interacting with files is a major asset.

    Cons

    Azure NetApp Files

    • It does not support file locking although its available as an add-on
    • Design is far from native and has a learning curve
    • We would like to have backup functionality built in so that we don't run into the issue where the replication process makes a copy of the corrupted data.

    Azure NetApp Files is very well integrated with Microsoft Azure, we use the same request methods that everyone knows from Azure. NetApp and Microsoft has built a very efficient solution that allows you to transfer virtually any service to the Microsoft public cloud. Azure NetApp Files also protects our data very well.

    • Its security and ease of use are most valuable.
    • It is stable and scalable.
