Microsoft Refreshes the Azure File Sync Agent Preview

Microsoft Refreshes the Azure File Sync Agent Preview

Microsoft is building yet another gateway to its cloud. This time the bridge is through a local service that allows customers to select local files and folders to automatically sync directly to Azure storage. The feature works much like the client-side OneDrive product.

The preview has now been refreshed and Microsoft is suggesting testers update to the new version:

Azure File Sync Agent (Preview Refresh 2)

Azure File Sync gives customers the ability to…

  • Centralize file services in Azure storage
  • Cache data in multiple locations for fast, local performance
  • Eliminate local backup and DR

 

But…ultimately, its about moving more on-premises operations into the cloud where Microsoft has pinned its future and its revenue.
