StorSimple 8100

We have a StorSimple 8100 & our vendor said support is ending 2021. Are there any options to migrate to new device (we had a 5000 that I migrated to 8100). Thank you.

    You have a few options:

    Azure options

    • Migrate to Azure File Sync

    Third-party options

    • Migrate to Panzura Freedom NAS
    • Migrate to Nasuni

    You can find the migration options from a StorSimple 8000 series over here:

    StorSimple 8000 series will reach its end-of-life in December 2022. If you are considering new deployments of StorSimple 8000 series, we recommend that you explore other alternatives such as Azure File Sync or Azure Data Box Online devices for your workloads.

    Successfully migrated 2 StorSimple devices to AFS. Would be willing to help if anyone needs it.
    Was able to complete the migration in less than 2 months (24TB of data).
