Beginning October 2017, you need to use the new Azure portal to manage your StorSimple 8000 series devices. The Azure classic portal is no longer supported.
Devices running Update 4.0 or earlier will have service connectivity issues after December 2017. We strongly recommend that you install Update 5.0.
Microsoft Azure StorSimple 8000 series management is generally available in the Azure portal. We'll transition all customers to the Azure portal by September 30, 2017.
A new subscription option for StorSimple 8000 Series, StorSimple Virtual Array, and StorSimple Cloud Appliance is now available.
The StorSimple Virtual Device Series will be available exclusively in the new Azure portal starting March 2, 2017 (March 9 for the US Government cloud).
With the release of the StorSimple 8000 Series Update 2, the StorSimple virtual appliance model 1100 has been renamed StorSimple Cloud Appliance 8010.
StorSimple 8000 Series Update 2 includes two key enhancements that expand StorSimple’s use cases and workloads: local volumes and the StorSimple Cloud Appliance 8020 (based on Azure Premium Storage).
The StorSimple Virtual Array is a version of StorSimple in a virtual machine form. It provides a cost-effective, lightweight solution for remote office environments.
The StorSimple device supports two volume types: Tiered Volume (formerly Primary) and Archival Volume.
Azure StorSimple 8000 Series Update 1 is a software-only update that is available via Microsoft Update and installed on shipping units.
Bandwidth templates allow you to configure multiple time-of-day schedules to tier the data from the StorSimple device to the cloud. You can create, modify, delete, and save these schedules as templates.
