Episode 159: StorSimple with Ahmed El-Shimi
StorSimple is a hybrid-cloud storage device. It's a storage appliance you put into your data center which connects to Azure Storage to extend the amount of storage available and automatically backups data in Azure. The device also automatically ensures the data accessed most frequently is on the local device while pulling less frequently accessed data automatically from Azure. StorSimple also enables you to easily access the same data from within Azure. In the video, Ahmed demonstrates a scenario where he wants to copy production data into a testing environment. He does this copying 20 TB of data in moments for his testing environment running in an Azure VM.
