What is the best way to share files (pdf's, code ipynbs images data etc) across multiple vm's? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Me and my data-science team of 6, all have their separate DSVM. I want an easy way to have shared folder/disk in order for my team to be able to share files, and create subfolders for projects.

    What is the best solution for this within azure?

  • You can create an Azure Files (SMB) and mount it remotely on all the DSVMs. Alternately, you can connect to a OneDrive to share files. This way the sharedfile system will appear as a drive on Windows and as a mount point on Linux. You can mix and match Windows and Linux accessing the same Azure Files. 

    Azure Files Documentation :



    All packages needed to mount Azure Files should be there on the DSVM by default. You just  have to mount and provide the right credentials to mount the Azure Files.
