Offer SMB share to customers RRS feed

  • Question

  • Dear geniuses at TechNet

    I'm looking for a way to offer an SMB share to around 400 different customers that I can set permissions on and that both our company's employees and our customers can access

    How can this be done ?

    I have tried the Azure SMB File share. It works, but I cannot find a way to set permissions. It also seems like I have to create a storage account for each customer. I could do that, but I cannot figure out how my co-workers should be able to work on the 400 different shares without having to mount them all. It also seems like an administrative challenge.

    I know I could use other services/protocols, but it needs to be SMB because my customers need to be able to mount and assign a drive letter to the share. It also needs to come up with a Read Only warning if the file is open by us or another user

    I'm open to all kinds of solutions. Both Private Cloud, PaaS and IaaS.
