  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.…

  4. File Recovery

    Ability to restore individual files without having to use VSS or mounting of a snapshot. Would improve the experience especially when one of SS main sales pitch is File Server data.
