Microsoft Offers Preview of Azure File Sync and PowerShell in Azure Cloud Shell


Both products are available immediately as a public preview.

At the Ignite Conference, Microsoft made two big announcements: public previews for Azure File Sync and PowerShell in Azure Cloud Shell.

The PowerShell experience adds an Azure drive (Azure: ) to discover and navigate all Azure resources, like filesystem navigation. Azure drive also provides contextual capabilities, such as resource group scoping for Azure PowerShell cmdlets when within the context of a resource group path in the Azure drive.

It also enables interactions with VMs using PowerShell remoting to enable management of guest VMs. PowerShell in Azure Cloud Shell is available as a public preview to showcase these new capabilities.

With Azure File Sync, users can now keep Azure File shares in sync with their on-premises Window Servers. Files are tiered between the on-premises file server and Azure Files. As a result, users can have only the newest and most recently accessed files locally, without sacrificing the ability to see and access the entire namespace through seamless cloud recall. Azure File Sync is available immediately as a preview.
