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. So it might be really great and cost effective solution.
I have tested this with a couple of customers now and it will obviously run in Azure fine, its just not supported.

Any hints on the roadmap for this?

Great idea! We do have plans to implement this, but there's no ETA at this time.
