The StorSimple storage appliance series offers enterprise-class storage systems for on-premises deployment that use Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3) as a storage tier. Used with StorSimple's Cloud Snapshots and Cloud Clones, the product provides end-to-end data management from the local SAN to Amazon S3, incorporating primary storage data deduplication, automated tiered storage of data (across Solid State Disk, Serial-Attached SCSI disks, and cloud storage), data compression, and encryption. The StorSimple solution includes specific support for Microsoft SharePoint and Microsoft Exchange, is certified with Microsoft and VMware and is optimized for Amazon S3. The system is 2U rack-mountable, includes dual, redundant, hot-swappable components and offers non-disruptive software updates. Using StorSimple and Amazon S3, organizations are able to enjoy the financial and operational benefits of cloud storage while addressing capacity needs and resolving storage scalability issues for high-growth applications. Typical deployments include Microsoft File Services, Microsoft Exchange Server 2010, Microsoft SharePoint, virtualized environments using VMware and Microsoft Hyper-V, data protection strategies including tape elimination, disaster recovery using StorSimple's thin restore capability and environments where archival and long-term retention are required.
