Shared storage device suitable for use in Premiere Pro available in Azure

We are looking for a shared storage device suitable for use in Premiere Pro available in Azure.

Several Premiere Pro users will work simultaneously using the SMB protocol on one shared storage device.
As suitable services, I think of Azure Files and Azure Netapp Files at the storage account premium.

However, Azure Files is expected to lack IOPS performance.
Azure Netapp Files are too expensive and cannot be checked if they are suitable.

Are there any other suitable solutions commonly used, such as solutions installed as VMs?

@79121069 You might consider utilizing a VM to host a SMB file share for performance then utilizing Azure File Sync to sync data to Azure Files. This would allow you to have locally available data for higher performance while utilizing the advantages of Azure Files for reliability. For detailed information about Azure File Sync you can refer to the planning guide.

Hope this helps! Let us know if you have further questions or any issues.

Thank you so much for your interest and answer.

I don't want Premiere Pro users to store data on a local computer.
This is because it makes several Premiere Pro users doubt using the same data.

It is assumed that several Premiere Pro users simultaneously edit using the SMB protocol.
I think it is generally similar to NAS.

I wonder if there is a famous solution to the media editing environment that can provide sufficient performance.
It includes Azure Paas products or marketplace products installed and used in VMs in the form of IaaS.
