How has it helped my organization?

We had multiple backup scenarios and Business continuity plans. With StorSimple we can replace a lot of manual process with the automation and cloud functions built in.

What needs improvement?

I would like more options besides iSCSI. I would also like link aggregation vs MPIO.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The only cost is in the purchase of Azure storage the device was free. There is no day-to-day cost a quarterly maintenance cost for patching is about it.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

Previously used Synology and Dell. There was no true cloud integration.

What other advice do I have?

Keep it simple and use MPIO. You need network redundancy.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

No we wanted Azure it was about finding the right solution with Azure.

What is most valuable?

Ability to easily backup data to Azure.

How has it helped 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.

What needs 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.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

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.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

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

What is StorSimple?
