Azure Files Preview

Finally I got access to my Azure Files Preview, and so far it really looks promising, and opens a lot of possibilities. Can’t wait to dive in an test it more…

For now, the storage is only available when you access it from a VM/Worker/Web role in the same region, but hey, it’s still in Preview, so we can hope. If you want to speed it up, please give it a vote here

Until you have the access your self, take a look at this blog post that explains the service
