I have an environment with a StorSimple virtual appliance (1200) running on-premise. I also have a second StorSimple virtual appliance (1200) running in an Azure VM.
What I'd like to do is clone or restore my on-premise StorSimple volume to the cloud StorSimple. The motivation is to be able to process all files (think migration) without incurring egress). However, when I clone a volume, there is no way to change the target device, and my clone is only accessible through the on-premise StorSimple.
Is what I am trying to achieve possible? Or, is there a better way to get the data accessible in Azure so it can be processed without incurring egress costs?
