SFTP (and FTPS) protocol support for Azure Files
Exposing the SFTP protocol would facilitate a bunch of scenarios where today 2 VMs (with all the management overhead that implies) are required.
Thanks for the feedback! We are interested in collecting feedback on this request – please vote for it if this is something you like to see.
We’re also interested in learning more what people want to use the SFTP/FTPS for and which protocol they prefer. Please feel free to leave us a comment letting us know more detail!

Really need to be able to move Azure blob storage to a 3rd party FTPS (implicit). Struggling with this right now in Azure Logic apps
David Hernando commented
definetively a must have! for Files/Blob
We have a use case for this at the moment and are struggling to find a work around. We have a system generating files stored on an Azure file share. We need to move these files from Azure to on premise using the existing tool set (MSFT) which would be simply implemented if this protocol was enabled.
We will probably end up installing a SFTP server in Azure and accessing that from the MSFT tools on premise or using Azure File Sync.
For the obvious reasons specified multiple times already!!!
I need this too... For christ sake!

I would like to use scp with file storage to avoid mounting via cifs/smb in linux containers/vms.

SFTP is necessary. There are a lot of organizations that still send files back and forth with SFTP and aren't ready to use the Azure Storage API. AWS offers an SFTP service for S3.
Bread and butter for almost every business. As usual MS tackle the hard stuff but fail to provide the basics you need in 95% of everyday business.

please add this feature. I believe NFS is in preview.
SMB, NFS and FTPS and SFTP would be a undefeatable storage

@admin: maybe add to the original message?
Sebastian Ballarati (CraftLabs) commented
any update on this?
We're trying to move existing business processes to the cloud (ideally with as little change as possible) and yet there's no SFTP Server support ??
On the other hand, AWS do support SFTP - perhaps we're looking at the wrong cloud provider.

It undermines the credibility of Azure when we present it to customers that it doesn't support a very common, industry standard protocol like SFTP or FTPS. There is no sensible response back to our customers for why it is not supported out of the box.

Adding SFTP support for Azure file share or, Blob storage would be really helpful to many customers who still rely on file transfer mechanism using SFTP

Please consider this a vote for SFTP (and FTPS) protocol support for Azure Files. Amazon already offers this. https://aws.amazon.com/sftp
When will MSFT figure out how important it is to support this?!
Anil Agarwal commented
Dear Admin, this is a long-awaited feature and something very useful that would help most organisations using Azure. Is there any update on the progress if SFTP can be available as an azure native service??
With this we feature we would like to share data across.
Please add this feature.
