StorSimple cloud-integrated storage (CiS) provides primary storage, backup, archive, and disaster recovery. Combined with Windows Azure, this hybrid cloud storage solution optimizes total storage costs and data protection for enterprises.
StorSimple cloud-integrated storage provides primary storage, backup, archive, and disaster recovery, combined with Windows Azure. This allows you to optimize total storage costs and increase data protection and service agility. With StorSimple, you can integrate the public cloud with on-premises storage to reduce datacenter infrastructure complexity, maximize data protection, reduce overall storage total cost of ownership (TCO) by 60-80%, and provision storage more rapidly to reclaim IT time cycles.
Significantly reduce storage capital expenses (primary backup, archives, disaster recovery (DR)) and related support cost.
Automate backups using local and cloud snapshots to ensure constant data protection. Dramatically improve recovery time objectives (RTO) by downloading only active data sets.
Deploy a single StorSimple system—integrated with Windows Azure Storage—to consolidate primary storage, backup hardware and software, archives, and disaster recovery.
Add storage capacity in minutes for primary, archive, and backup data, and reclaim significant administrative time by automating backup and archiving procedures.
Multi-location disaster recovery is now as fast and simple as mounting a cloud snapshot.
StorSimple provides on-premises enterprise storage which securely and seamlessly integrates with Windows Azure through a single solution. It delivers high-performance tiered storage, live archiving, and cloud-based data protection/disaster recovery, reducing costs by up to 80% compared to traditional enterprise storage.
StorSimple solutions offer enterprise-class high-availability with fully redundant disk controllers, power supplies, network connections and no single point of failure. They also support non-disruptive software upgrades.
All data stored in the cloud with StorSimple has AES-256 encryption applied to it. The encryption key is never given to StorSimple or the cloud provider, ensuring complete data privacy to support compliance requirements as stringent as the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA).
Applications get local SSD performance with the elasticity of the cloud through automatic tiering based on a BlockRankTM algorithm that does for blocks of content what Page Rank does for Google.
Instant thin provisioning enables you to provision Instantly and thinly provision massive archive volumes with live access and cloud economics. Automatic tiering moves older blocks to the cloud without the need for complex archival procedures
Incremental, deduplicated snapshots reduce storage requirements by more than 90%, while delivering instant snapshot and restore technology in minutes as opposed to days. Cloud Snapshots offer offsite data protection via the cloud. It is now simple and cost-effective to retain as many snapshots as you need – no more 30, 60 or 90-day limits.
Backups made to the cloud can be recovered to the same location or a different location. Disaster recovery is now as fast and simple as mounting a volume. Now you can replace tape without having to double your storage infrastructure investment.
Separate primary storage, archival, backup/restore, and disaster recovery hardware means multiple separate management consoles. One integrated console makes it dramatically simpler to manage the whole storage infrastructure, freeing up IT resources.
Application-optimized volumes are supported for Windows file shares, SharePoint and VMware libraries. Full support for VSS application-consistent snapshots is provided.
