Hello and welcome everybody to our TNWiki Article Spotlight on Tuesday.
Sometimes migrating an application to Azure can have some hurdles. One problem can be external dependencies to a storage system, especially file storage systems. With Azure File Storage we have a relatively new storage option in Azure Storage which can help to solve this problem. Chilberto has written an article about one technique you can use to sync an on-premise folder to Azure File Storage. This article explains the problem and different solutions and why they might not be a good fit. After that he shows a fairly simple code snippet to sync an on-premise folder to Azure File Storage.
If you want to play around a little bit with Azure File Storage, this article is a good starting point for a practical problem.
