"The storage in this solution is excellent."
"Azure File Storage gives good value for money, so I don't find it expensive."
"It was easy to set up."
"We have not explored the desktop performance analysis of the file storage, but the user interface, API, and the response that we receive over the file storage are very good. We have a lot of customers that connect to the client-side, click the images, and upload them. The beauty of the solution is that we can mount the file storage into a critical server as well as an external drive. The speed that we receive with the images is pretty good."
"The solution can scale to fit any requirement."
"The initial setup is fairly easy."
"I think performance can be improved."
"Microsoft Azure File Storage is not that scalable. Once you reach the boundaries, you need to migrate to another solution."
