    Thank you for your feedback. We are currently in public preview of blob storage lifecycle management. The feature set offers a rich, rule-based policy engine which you can use to transition your data to the best access tier and to expire data at the end of its lifecycle. See our post on the Azure Blog to get started: https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/azure-blob-storage-lifecycle-management-public-preview/preview/.

    For any further questions, or to discuss your specific scenario, send us an email at DLMFeedback@microsoft.com.

    Hi folks,

    I have this update marked as “started” as we have 100 TiB available through premium and through limited regions for standard (see public announcement of this coming soon – should already be available).

    For File Sync, we test with number of items (files/directories), as we don’t really care about file share size (it doesn’t affect the performance of sync – just upload/download). With v7, our current tested threshold (not a hard limit) is 50 million objects. This was done on ~20 TiB shares, but you should be able to go larger without issue.

    We plan to continue to scale up this tested threshold with future versions of the agent as we continue to test.

    Thanks,

    Hi folks,

    We are evaluating what we can do to address this feedback and would very much appreciate your continued votes and suggestions on it.

    One alternative to mounting the share on-premises over port 445 is Azure File Sync, which enables you to create a cache of an Azure file share on an on-premises Windows Server. Azure File Sync only sends data over the Azure Files HTTPS (using the File REST APIs). You can learn more about Azure File Sync here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/storage/files/storage-sync-files-planning

    Please don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any additional questions!

    Thanks,

    Will Gries
