Azure Files is a Microsoft managed file sharing solution, which helps to provide centralized file-sharing capabilities similar to a traditional on-premises file-server.

In this lab, you will have the opportunity to create an Azure Files share and connect to it from a Windows Server using SMB (Server Message Block, file sharing protocol).

After completing this lab, you'll be familiar with how to create and connect to an Azure File share, as well as understanding important security considerations.

What are Hands-On Labs?

Hands-On Labs are scenario-based learning environments where learners can practice without consequences. Don't compromise a system or waste money on expensive downloads. Practice real-world skills without the real-world risk, no assembly required.
