We are pleased to pass on the good news that Azure NetApp Files no longer has a waiting list. Though the general release of this bare-metal cloud storage occurred two years ago, there was a waiting list to get on to make use of the service. With this now gone, it is truly available for anyone to use.
Azure NetApp Files is a combination of NetApp’s ONTAP innovation combined with Microsoft Azure’s service management and network experience. It is offered as a Microsoft service with three performance and pricing tiers. Access is easy and you will find it available within the Azure portal.
Any enterprise can safely put their workloads in the cloud, knowing there will be successful migration of production workloads. Additionally, new capabilities continue to be released and you can stay up to date with the documentation here: What’s new in Azure NetApp Files | Microsoft Docs
