Data Box and Larger FileShares RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello!

    I am currently developing strategies to migrate OnPremise Fileshares from OnPrem to the Cloud. Now I've found Azure Data Box and one Thing that isn't 100% clear from the way it was worded in the "Understand the Limits" Article from Data Box:

    It says 5TB per Share, but it references the Article about Azure Files Scale Targets. In that article it is stated that larger fileshares are available, which supports up to 100TB.

    The Question:

    Is it possible to use Azure Data Box Disks for migrating to larger fileshares? The Scenario would be an initial Data Import of 12TB or am I restricted to 5TB FileShares when considering Data Box Disk Migrations?

    Best Regards, Mark
