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…

  5. 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.

  6. Storsimple Virtual array without physical appliance

    Please allow us to purchase and deploy a Storsimple 8020 VA without the requirement to purchase a physical appliance. Why do I need to buy hardware when my entire datacenter is already in Azure? This requirement for your enterprise customers is frustrating and bizarre. NetApp and Nasuni don't require a hardware purchase, so why does Microsoft?

  7. See Volume (LUN) serial number in StorSimple Management Service

    The Command can currently just be executed by StorSimple Support in a challenge response approach.

    Get-HcsVirtualDisk command.
    You will get VSN.
    Example :
    LUN serial number, maybe means the VSN
    VSN : SS-VOL-060362b7-d835-4c6d-86c9-eddcb051737c

    Please show the VSN on the StorSimple Management Service under the Volumes Detail information.

  9. 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.

  10. 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…

  11. Storsimple 8100 reporting

    I would like to export and automate the Storsimple reporting. It would be good if you could get the reports in excel or pdf format to me email.

    I would also want to see the reports from one month period. Now you have only one day, one week or one year periods to select. It would be also good to get the report from specific period of time. Not just from from specified time period before current time. Like from 1.8. - 31.8.

    Another good solution would also be if we could see the Storsimple reports in Power Bi.

  12. StoreSimple Storage Admin Volume Access Permission (Role based model)

    Minimum requirement:
    Due to the fact that a company can have the requirement for 4-eye principle in for example Backup Retention / Deletion.

    In the case with two StorSimple Management Services in place with the Same Data in each: There must be a way to give some Storage Admins the access permissions to manage one StorSimple Management Service and some other Storage Admins access rights to manage the other StorSimple Management Service.

    Role Base Access Best Case scenario:
    The Access Permission is configurable based on following element

    Volume (at least Volume Container):
    - Delete prevention
    - Create prevention
    - Increase…

  13. Backup Integratoin by API for Application consistent Backup

    It would be greate if the Time Point Objective of a Backup could be controlled by a Powershell Script Integration (API) to provide Application Consistent Backup capability.

    A such API could be used for example in combination with Riverbed SteelFusion Technology to provide end to end Application Consistent Backup.

  15. Incorrect value for local storage usage reported in portal

    Storsimple manager in portal (StorSimple 1200) reports wrong value for local usage in portal. It shows equal values for local usage and primary usage. Looking at the hcs_stats and/or performance counters, they report the correct values. See attached screenshot:

  16. Insight in backup usage

    GIve insight in the amount of data in Azure storage that is used for the backups created with StorSimple (8100). Currently it is not possible to see how much data is actual live data and how much is used for backups. And when this is possible it would be nice to be able to modify the backup policies as well ( https://feedback.azure.com/forums/257791-storsimple/suggestions/16651912-allow-modification-of-backup-retention-on-storsimp )

  20. 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
