"Great product, great support"

What do you like best?

The product works really well and gives us a ton of storage. All of the management is done via the Azure portal and very rarely have we ever had the need to login directly to the controllers. I think the best part of this solution is the fact that you can easily setup backup and retention policies within the Azure interface. They're simple, intuitive, and easy to monitor once they've been set up.

What do you dislike?

I dislike that you have to have downtime in order to upgrade the firmware on the disks. I think you should be able to just pull the trigger, controller 0 does its upgrade, fails over, and then controller 1 does its upgrade. Currently, the process involves manually plugging your laptop into each controller, running some commands via Powershell, and sitting there for two hours while the upgrade happens. Not fun.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This is a solid solution that works really really well. The support team is phenomenal and knows the product really well.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use the StorSimple to manage our in-house file shares that serve the business. We also use it to house another copy of our Veeam backup data so that we have a repository on our ExaGrid as well as a copy on our StorSimple.

"Cheapest solution for bulk storage that is auto-backed up to Cloud."

What do you like best?

The price for 10s of TBs of data is extremely low.

The setup and startup is simple and straight-forward.

Backup and Restoration are done in just a few clicks with an existing Azure account.

What do you dislike?

Restoration can be rather slow from Cloud recovery.

Once a device is setup with an Azure subscription, it cannot be moved to another subscription.

MAC users have issues with folder navigation with file shares on the device - it takes a very long time to browse an unexplored folder for the first time.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The device has been rock-solid and a "no-brainer" decision when comparing to other disk-to-cloud backup solutions.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We needed a better and cheaper backup solution for large file shares - especially non-critical data.

What Hybrid Cloud Storage solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Azure"

What do you like best?

The implementation of the 8600 was pretty straightforward and trouble free. Once set up, data transfer to cloud performed well. And generally would recommend.

What do you dislike?

but there are a few things lacking. One: 25TB limit on NFS shares. Not sure why this is in place, but it immediately invalidated the hardware for use in resolving a local storage issue. Two: You have to deploy a VM appliance to HOST a NFS share. Other products do this out of the gate. To get fault tolerance, you have to cluster the appliance in some fashion. Too many extra steps! Three: Dedupe and compression rates are not trackable via reporting features. StorSimple needs to expand reporting options quite a bit.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

create a cloud appliance that replicates the architecture and capabilities of the physical hybrid storage device

"Better business"

What do you like best?

The amount of storage is amazing and this helps organize a lot of data. This is also a very cost effective program that can be used like onedrive but with far more options. Primarily my company would use this as document storage and so things could be organized.

What do you dislike?

It is difficult to transfer data once it has been added to azure storsimple. So, I would recommend having a backup of all the data used just to save you the hassle.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Mostly we use storsimple to have access to widely used company documents. By using storsimple it makes locating files and using them an easy convenience.
