StorSimple

Microsoft Azure StorSimple Manager allows you to centrally manage all your StorSimple devices from Azure Portal. It provides the ability to configure and monitor devices, provision storage, setup backup and recovery to any other managed device with a simple to use interface.

  1. STOIRSIMPLE8600 Addon Request

    1) Would be good if the virtual instance in Azure has the capability to access the 8600 Azure CLOUD storage bucket, this helps in easy access of data from Azure OR a browser facility that can access the SSIMPLE encrypted storage contents from anywhere.

    2) Would be good to have an archival policy or similar option so that the archive volume or the data which is not accessed for a particular time period gets migrated from the HOT \ COOL Tier to the Archive tier storage accounts.

    3) A precache facility to prepopulate specific data onto the storage controller local…

  4. Enable StorSimple reporting with Power BI

    I would like to access StorSimple data and present it in Power BI as similar to Azure Backup Report for Power BI. There is a demand at my work for data to be displayed using Power BI.

  5. Allow physical StorSimple appliances for CSP subscriptions

    My understanding is that currently, StorSimple physical appliances can only be used on an EA subscription. As a Direct CSP, my company is helping a lot of customers migrate from EA to CSP because of all the value added capabilities with CSP vs EA. The problem is that if a customer has a physical StorSimple device (which means they have to be on an Azure EA subscription), we cannot even connect that physical applicance to a CSP subscription - even if we could, there is no way to migrate the StorSimple data from one subscription to another.

    So, what I'm…

  7. Add SMB shares to physical appliances

    A lot of companies don't want to introduce iSCSI to their network infrastructure, making StorSimple really hard to sell. They like the idea for fileservers, and appreciate the redundancy a physical device can deliver.
    Basically they're looking for StorSimple Virtual Array functionality, in the physical appliances: SMB Shares

  8. Increase the maximum number of files per share and per virtual array

    1 Million files per share MAX limit is not realistic for shares that can be up to 20TB in size. 1 Million files isn't enough to accommodate your average file share on a file server.

    Also, 4 Million files per StorSimple Virtual Array is also extremely limiting.

    It would be very useful of these limits were raised significantly.

  9. Allow modification of Backup retention on StorSimple Virtual 1200

    Currently an automatic backup happens every day at a time you select and kept for roughly 10 years. this could create an awful lot of data in Azure that you don't need and don't want to pay for.
    Please allow Backup policy modifications.

  10. Ability to resize the virtual disk on the StorSimple Virtual Array 1200

    Currently once you have created the 1200 you can't resize the underlying virtual disk which is very limiting. You would have to delete the whole array and recover to a new one.

  11. Allow resizing of shares on StorSimple Virtual Array 1200

    Currently once a share is created it cannot be be made larger even if there is free space on the array/cloud.

    If a share fills up you have to create a whole new share and redirect users which is very inconvenient.

  13. Manage StorSimple appliances from new Azure portal

    The old StorSimple manager in the classic portal lacks the ability to easily perform certain functions. Such as a custom name for your backup policies, custom reports etc. The user experience is poor.

  14. Support StorSimple Virtual Appliance in ARM Virtual Network

    Currently the StorSimple Virtual Applicances 8010 and 8020 only support ASM Virtual Network but that's not the way to go forward. This limitation requires me to setup a VNet-to-VNet gateway.

  17. Support clustering of StorSimple appliances

    Allow multiple StorSimple appliances to be clustered (use an IB link or something between them to keep data in sync) for automatic failover in the event the primary node fails or needs to be taken offline.

  20. Allow FSRM quota managment when using storsimple as a file server

    I'd really like to use a storsimple file share for folder redirection, UE-V, home directories etc. It would be nice if I could set quotas for user files within a share.
