What is Azure NetApp Files?

Azure NetApp Files (ANF) makes it easy for enterprise line-of-business (LOB) and storage professionals to migrate and run complex, file-based applications with no code change. Azure NetApp Files is widely used as the underlying shared file-storage service in various scenarios. These include migration (lift and shift) of POSIX-compliant Linux and Windows applications, SAP HANA, databases, high-performance compute (HPC) infrastructure and apps, and enterprise web applications.
ANF provides the widest choice of file protocols (NFSv3, NFSv4.1, SMB3) in the public cloud. It provides on-premises class performance with multiple tiers (Ultra, Premium, Standard) along with most advanced enterprise data management (Snapshots, Clones, Replication)
