Azure File Sync - what is it really good for

looking at the Microsoft documentation Azure File Sync is seen as an option to sync files originally in a file space in an Storage Account to one or more Windows Server(s).

The word "sync" implies it could be used both ways and it works both ways.

A customer of mine is now looking at using Azure File Sync as an replacement for their usage of "rsync" to get rid of all the old Linux stuff. The real ask is to get one or more folders on a Windows Server synched and secured in a second solution. So sync direction is from the Server(s) to the Storage Account in Azure.


How do you see that? Can we and should we use it that way? Or is there another option built in to Azure that can be used and can do the job much better?
