About this talk

Migrating an organization’s file data to the Azure cloud can address a number of pain points that are commonly associated with storing and managing large quantities of unstructured data. However, enterprise class organizations have traditionally shied away from performing large scale file server migrations to the cloud, citing concerns over logistics and latency.   Attend this presentation to: • Learn about the major trends, ranging from Window’s Servers 2008’s end-of-life, to the need for remote file access, which are driving companies to migrate file data to the Microsoft Azure cloud now. • Understand three different cloud migration solutions that can be implemented and how they differ with respect to architecture, salability and cost, and how the choice of Azure storage types significantly impacts the price you pay. • Hear company examples of moving windows file servers to Azure Blob and Nasuni, their decision-making process and the results they achieved.
