    @zebster Welcome to Microsoft Q&A Forum, Thank you for posting your query here!

    When a StorSimple device reaches its end of life, Microsoft will no longer provide support or updates for the device. However, you can continue to use the device as long as it meets your business needs and you are comfortable with the risks associated with using an unsupported device. Keep in mind that using an unsupported device can pose security risks and may not be compliant with certain regulations.

    It is important to note that after the end of life date, Microsoft will no longer provide technical support, bug fixes, or security updates for the device. This means that if any issues arise with the device, you will not be able to receive support from Microsoft. Additionally, using an unsupported device can pose security risks and may not be compliant with certain regulations.

    If you choose to continue using the StorSimple device after its end of life, it is recommended that you have a plan in place to mitigate any risks associated with using an unsupported device. This may include implementing additional security measures, such as firewalls and intrusion detection systems, and regularly monitoring the device for any issues.

    The best option to migrate Storsimple is Azure file sync!

    The StorSimple 8000 series is represented by either the 8100 or the 8600 physical, on-premises appliances and their cloud service components. StorSimple 8010 and 8020 virtual appliances are also covered in this migration guide. It's possible to migrate the data from either of these appliances to Azure file shares with optional Azure File Sync. Azure File Sync is the default and strategic long-term Azure service that replaces the StorSimple on-premises functionality. This article provides the necessary background knowledge and migration steps for a successful migration to Azure File Sync.
