Copy data from Cloud Storage to Filestore

Copying data from Google Cloud Storage to Google Cloud Filestore enables users to efficiently transfer and manage large datasets within their cloud infrastructure. This introduction provides an overview of the process and significance of copying data from Cloud Storage to Filestore.

Google Cloud Storage serves as a scalable and durable object storage solution for storing various types of data, including files, images, and backups.
