How can we improve Azure Storage?

Allow cloud tiering for Azure File Sync based on other attributes

In preview for Azure File Sync, there is only a simple tiering policy: volume free space percentage. When enabled, it tiers based on a "heat map" formula, which looks at last modified and last accessed. It would be helpful to allow tiering directly based on one or more attributes like last modified, last accessed, creation date, or file type.

    Thank you for your feedback! After Azure File Sync becomes generally available, we do plan to expand the available cloud tiering policies. Please continue to vote for this item to help us prioritize the need for this, and also please let us know in the comments which cloud tiering policies you’d like to see.

    Thanks,

    Will Gries
    Program Manager, Azure Files
