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. 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.

  2. 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.

  4. StorSimple as Virtual Tape Library

    As written here http://feedback.azure.com/forums/258995-azure-backup-and-scdpm/suggestions/6831679-storsimple (sorry for cross-posting) I think the StorSimple Device is perfectly suited to act as a Virtual Tape Library i. e. for DPM.
    Maybe something for future releases.

  5. Support an automatic lazy write to Azure

    The StorSimple appliances should be able to automatically support a lazy write to Azure for all data changing on the appliance. This would help protect data in a more timely manner than a cloud snapshot.

  6. StorSimple as WORM Storage

    One customer of me asked if it is possible to save data in a way that the saved data is audit compliant (change of data written to StorSimple not possible, i. e. for accounting data). Actually 3rd party software needed.

    Maybe an option for a future release.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. More supported Switches

    Microsoft need to give an enhanced list of supported networking kit for the StorSimple devices as opposed to the expensive and limited list of kit that is currently listed.
