We are excited to announce the general availability of the StorSimple Data Manager. This feature allows you to transform data from StorSimple format into the native format in Azure blobs or Azure Files. Once your data is transformed, you can use services like Azure Media Services, Azure Machine Learning, HDInsight, Azure Search, and more.
StorSimple devices use the cloud as a tier of storage and sends data to the cloud in a highly efficient and secure manner. Data is stored in the cloud tier in this deduped, compressed, and encrypted format. A side effect of this is that this data is not readily consumable by cloud services that you might want to use. Azure offers a rich bouquet of services and our goal is to let you use the service of your choice on your data to unleash its potential.
