FTP as a service
FTP is used a log for integration. It's often a common need and a common customer request. I would like to have an FTP/FTPS offering that would be HA & Auto scalable (with several pricing tier).
- A simple one with basic security : should cover most need (TLS / encryption at rest)
-A more advanced one maybe with Azure AD integration
Storage should be HA (Using Azure Blob or Azure Files).
I would like just to have a PaaS service and do not care about the infrastructure.
Future feature like : Integration to Azure Network, Private endpoint (no public endpoint exposed), can come after.
With Azure Web Apps there is already something similar. The idea would be to have a v1 that could reuse the same bits to quickly release a preview & test.
The goal would be to leverage this service as a data source for Integration (Azure Logic Apps, Azure Functions, Azure Stream Analytics, Azure Data Factory) out of the box. And that could unlock a lot of new scenarios.

SFTP as a service is highly needed

This would be extremely useful, and allow us to go "all azure"

SFTP as a service would be very useful for a migration project we have lined up.

So many services still require SFTP/FTP for integration purposes, for a small and cloud-first IT team having this as a PaaS offering would be amazing, alleviate strains of using infrastructure and provide a cost benefit.
Our new Reporting Services program will definitely need SFTP services to integrate with all of the other Azure based services we will be deploying soon.
SFTP as a service in Azure would eliminate cumbersome 3rd party VM solutions that have additional security requirements.
A solution that integrates AAD/guest to have SFTP access would be a leg up on AWS. A bring your own identity scenario would prevent the need for user/pass management, as well as the need for SSH keys or whitelists.

This would be very helpful, ideally something that could be included with or linked to storage accounts
FTP/FTPS/SFTP are all highly critical services in a post on-prem world. Please add these must-have features.

This is becoming a very important service for our organization in today's world.

FTP and SFTP specifically as a service is a must have.

I also want ftp as a service in Azure.
- SFTP service more than ftp is required
- encryption at rest
- no public endpoint exposuse (to backup NVA configuration) which often use sftp or scp protocol
3 years in and MS still hasn't provided this? What is it going to take?
please SFTP will help
