We are pleased to announce that StorSimple 8000 series Update 4.0 is now generally available. This release has the following new features and enhancements:
- Heatmap-based restore – No more slowness when accessing data from appliance post device restore (DR). The new feature implemented in Update 4 tracks frequently accessed data to create a heatmap when the device is in use prior to DR. Post DR, it uses the heatmap to automatically restore and rehydrate the data from the cloud.
- Performance enhancements for locally pinned volumes – This update has improved the performance of locally pinned volumes in scenarios that have high data ingestion.
- Bug fixes – In the areas of MPIO support for StorSimple Snapshot Manager, alerts, controller replacement, updates, and more.
This update is now generally available for customers to apply from the StorSimple Manager Service in Azure. You can also manually apply this update using the hotfix method.
