Use the Windows File Explorer to drag and drop files and folders between local and Azure storage. Use object storage for offsite backup, data migration or to free up space.
Users can now browse, open and save files from cloud storage directly from their regular desktop applications. Just use the application’s File Open or Save function.
The drive is optimized for large and deep folder hierarchies. Metadata and files are cached and only downloaded as needed. An Upload Manager synchronizes updated files with object storage.
Just provide the storage endpoint and Azure credentials and the drive is ready to use as a native desktop Windows drive.
The Drive enables objects to be browsed, opened and edited as files from any application. To a user, it works like a local file system.
Containers appear as top-level folders – simply create and delete as folders.
Reorganize storage by moving files and folders within and between containers.
Moving and renaming of files and folders is supported. User actions are mapped to underlying operations that Azure storage supports.
Files are uploaded asynchronously. Users can view and manage the upload queue.
Drives can be referenced in scripts and used from the command prompt just like local file systems.
Use for shared file systems, offsite backup, data migration or to free up space from local disk.
Fully brandable for white label, OEM or corporate use. Ability to lock down endpoint.
