Microsoft & Netapp to collobrate to deliver NFS on Azure

Netapp announced that it will be the data services technology powering the first Network File System (NFS) service in the cloud, the Microsoft Azure Enterprise NFS Service.

With Microsoft itself offering Azure files, a CIFS/SMB based file sharing service, NFS has until now not been a native option with Azure.
This announcement now means that NFS will be offered as a service via Azure. Allowing even simpler lift and shift scenarios for customers who are already using NFS based file shares.

The service itself is offered in collaboration with Netapp and will be available early 2018.
