Azure File Shares are a powerful tool for managing data in the cloud. The data stores that uses File Shares can take many forms, and it can even include configuration data. One way to use Azure Files shares is to store shared configuration files in them so that the shared configuration files can be accessed across multiple servers. In this lab, we will explore Azure File shares. We will configure an Nginx web server on two machines using a shared configuration file stored in an Azure File share. This will provide you with some hands-on experience with what it might look like to manage shared configuration using Azure File shares.
