StorSimple Çözümü Fiyatlandırması

StorSimple

The total cost for a StorSimple appliance consists of the monthly subscription fee, the Azure Blob storage capacity and access charges, and data transfer charges that vary according to usage.

The StorSimple subscription fee varies based on the appliance model. It is metered at a daily rate for every day that the appliance is registered with the Azure StorSimple manager service. To discontinue the service and stop getting charged, decommission the appliance from the management service.

Fiyatlandırma ayrıntıları

Model Daily rate Monthly rate (31-day months)
Virtual appliance—1200 $- $-
Cloud array 8010 or 8020 $- $-
Physical appliance—8100 $- $-
Physical appliance—8600 $- $-

The cost of the virtual appliance is prorated daily and starts once it is activated through Azure. The subscription meter will stop when the device is deactivated from the Azure portal. Simply, turning a device off does not stop the meter; it must be deactivated.

If you purchased your StorSimple appliance under the Azure Storage Acceleration Program, you're being charged under the old pricing model until February, 2020. However, you have the option to move to the new subscription based model (shown above) at any time. Please contact your account representative if you have any questions or want to migrate to the new pricing model.

All customers will be migrated to the new pricing model in February 2020.

Acquiring a StorSimple appliance

The SVA 1200 can be acquired and downloaded for free by all Azure customers. After the appliance is registered with the service, the daily meter will apply.

The Microsoft Azure StorSimple 8000 series hybrid storage arrays can only be purchased through the Microsoft Enterprise Agreement. To acquire StorSimple hardware, the customer must commit to StorSimple subscription usage until their next Enterprise Agreement anniversary or the expiration of the Enterprise Agreement.

Example

At the anniversary of their Enterprise Agreement, a customer can purchase a StorSimple 8100 Subscription Plan for one year at the daily rate of $-. 365 days × $- daily rate = $-. That SKU will give the customer entitlements to use the appliance for one year, and the hardware will be sent at no additional cost.

If the customer wants to get an appliance mid-term, they can purchase the plan for the remaining months. At the Enterprise Agreement anniversary date, the customer has a choice to renew the plan or switch to (pay-as-you-go). If the customer does not purchase the subscription plan, Azure meter will go against Azure Monetary commit or overage. The price is the same with the plan or pay-as-you-go. Pay-as-you-go has the flexibility of stopping at any time.

StorSimple permanently transfers physical hardware devices to the customer. The customer does not need to return the hardware if they discontinue service.

The StorSimple Cloud Appliances (SCA 8010/8020) can only be installed as companion devices to 8000-series physical devices. A customer must acquire and register a physical appliance to use a StorSimple Cloud Appliance.

Underlying Storage and Networking Fees with StorSimple

StorSimple uses a customer’s storage account to store data. There is a blob storage capacity charge as well as storage access fees and network egress associated with using a storage account.

Understanding how StorSimple manages your data will help you understand how the storage account will be billed. StorSimple breaks block data down into smaller chunks for deduplication. Breaking down cloud data into smaller chunks for deduplication can result in lower cloud consumption and better performance, but it also leads to higher numbers of transactions. The default StorSimple chunk size is 64 KB, and customers can increase the size to 512 KB for archive volumes that are less likely to benefit from the smaller deduplication size.

There are two Azure Storage Account types available for use with StorSimple — General Purpose Account and Blob Storage Account. Using a Blob Storage Account and setting the access tier to cool can save customers money in the long run if their data is truly cool. Customers can choose to use LRS, ZRS, or GRS storage, which have different prices. The table below shows the typical Azure meters driven by using StorSimple.

Type of Meter Description
StorSimple daily fee Depends on the model, and is charged for every day that appliance is active.
Blob Storage capacity This is the Storage Account fee for data at rest in Azure after dedupe and compression. The rates differ based on the redundancy options (LRS, ZRS, GRS, and RA-GRS) and access tiers (hot or cool).
Blob Storage access costs
  • Operations
  • Read/Write
  • Replication

These are the fees associated with API calls against your storage account driven by StorSimple, including read and write operations, geo-replication data transfer fees if you choose a GRS or RA-GRS account type, and data read and write fees if you choose cool access tier for your Blob storage. You should expect these charges to be higher when you first migrate a large amount of data into StorSimple. After initial data ingestion, these charges scale with the rate of your data growth, data change, and the number of cloud reads (cache misses).

Outbound data transfer The networking fee for downloading data from Azure.
Virtual Machines and Standard Managed Disks If you use StorSimple cloud array, you will be charged for the underlying virtual machine (VM) and storage disks in addition to all the charges above.
  • Model 8010—Linux Standard_A3 VM, 4 x 1 TB Standard Managed Disks (S30) for each VM
  • Model 8020—Linux Standard_DS3 VM, 4 x 1 TB Standard Managed Disks (S30) for each VM
