Article Summary

The edge filer image used to create the CTERA Edge Filer instance is created from a vhd file that is obtainable from CTERA support. The file needs to be moved to your Azure portal, using either Azure Storage Explorer or Azcopy.exe. Azcopy is available for download from https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/storage/common/storage-use-azcopy-v10. The zip file contains the azcopy.exe program.

After installing the CTERA Edge Filer, you perform an initial configuration, described in First Time Setup.

The edge filer can be installed in a Microsoft Azure environment with the following:

  • Microsoft Azure portal premium account.

  • Azure instance that matches the license:

    LicenseMemory (GB)Maximum Data
