NFS is important not only from a security perspective (as others before me have already pointed out), but also from a performance perspective. Latency and throughput-wise, all tests we performed put NFS at at least double the performance of SMB.
Oh, and while we're at it, can you please look at the throughput of Azure Files? It's 10 times less than the minimum performance offered by Amazon EFS and this makes migrating high traffic legacy applications (of which are plenty) to Azure quite challenging. We'd all love to use Azure Blob storage for our apps, but that's not doable a lot of times.
Cross-region read replicas are now available in public preview. You can create up to five read-only replicas in any region supported by the MySQL service.
To get started, please use the Azure portal to select the location for your read replica: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/mysql/howto-read-replicas-portal#create-a-read-replica
