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. StorSimple Blob Storage ARCHIVE Support

    StorSimple Blob Storage ARCHIVE Support is needed. Since more than four years unused data ARCHIVE data storing option is not available and paying huge storage amount for cool storage

  2. 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…

  4. 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

  5. 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. Ability to hide .backup folder on virtual storsimple 1200

    When the storsimple 1200 is in File server configuration a .backup folder is presented on each share. I would like the ability to make the .backup folder hidden so users couldn't see it.

  10. Require dual authorisation before deactivation of a device.

    It should be possible to require authorisation from two users before allowing the deactivation of a StorSimple device to guard against a rogue operator or a security breach compromising the operators credentials because it would be so drastic to lose the files and backups on the device.

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. Support running StorSimple Virtual Array as Azure VM

    This request is not for disaster recovery like SSCA does.

    I want to use brand-new SSVA as Azure VM to build mid size of file server on my Azure virtual network.
    As you know, Azure VM just support 1023GB x N size of attached storage and we can scale N to max 64 but we need G5 or GS5. It is so expensive.

    If I can use SSVA on DS3 or D3, for example, I can build max 64TB (one volume or file share limit to 20TB) file server or iSCSI storage and also backup and recovery is very easy.…

  17. 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.

  20. Make it easier to open a support case for StorSimple hardware

    We have a failed disk alert in the Azure Portal on a 6-month old StorSimple 8600. I should be able to click on the alert to log a case, instead of having to go to the new portal to enter my SA subscription information.
