CodeLathe, the leader in enterprise file sharing and sync (EFSS), announced today that FileCloud now adds support to Microsoft Azure File Storage as a backend storage. The FileCloud integration with Azure File Storage allow businesses to deploy high available, redundant and scalable FileCloud hosting on Microsoft Azure without any complicated setup. Businesses can also easily scale their FileCloud as they add more users and workload.
