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.

Taking more frequent cloud backups will produce the same intent. For example, you could take hourly backups and keep 24 of those. This will ensure that every hour StorSimple looks for changes and pushes them up to the cloud. You can combine these with other backup schedules to achieve desired RPO goals. For example you could also take daily backups and retain 31 of those, and then take monthly backups and keep 12 of those...

Thanks for the suggestion. The challenge is that when the data is needed back on the device it needs to be a full consistent copy that can be mounted back on the host.
