StorSimple Review

A good device for file storage

Valuable Features

Ability to easily backup data to Azure.

Improvements to My Organization

This device has made it possible for us to almost entirely do away with Tape backup. It has good integration with Veeam but shines in file storage arena.

Room for Improvement

It would be nice for Storsimple to offer a unit with more fast disk so that it would mimic a traditional SAN more easily.

Use of Solution

3+ years.

Deployment Issues

No issues with deployment.

Stability Issues

Had a SSD drive go bad in one of our older units. This was replaced under our service plan, but during the rebuild process encountered a bad block in another SSD that it was reading from and downed the device hard. had to rebuild the device from scratch with support and pull down the last backup from the cloud.

Scalability Issues

No issues with scalability so far.

Customer Service and Technical Support

Customer Service:

9 out of ten, they consistently beat service timelines.

Technical Support:

9 out of ten

Previous Solutions

We had everything on a traditional SAN but realized that we could also help in our backup strategy by moving file data to a device like this.

Initial Setup

Very straightforward any IT engineer could easily do it.

Other Solutions Considered

We evaluated a whitewater device, which was more backup oriented.
