Azure File Shares provide a simple and reliable way to store data in a typical directory hierarchy. Moreover, File Share data can be accessed using the widely supported Samba protocol. This enables you to mount Azure File Shares to a virtual machine and easily interact with the files from your VM. In this lab, you will have the opportunity to mount an Azure File Share to a Linux VM. By the time you have completed the lab, you will be able to read and write to an Azure File Share from your Linux VM.

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.
