Azure Stack connectors for 3rd party SAN storage RRS feed

  • Question

  • I believe there was intent or desire for Azure Stack to support 3rd party SAN storage with connectors at some point following the initial release. Is there any update on when connectors will be available so that SAN storage vendors can integrate into Azure Stack? 

    Regards - Mike

  • External SAN storage is currently not supported on Azure Stack and we do not have any ETA to share.

  • The Uservoice website isn't responding for me.  I've been looking into Azure Stack but I can't justify the cost without knowing I can leverage our substantial SAN investments, in addition to the fact our SAN deployment is very fast and very large, so seems well-suited to be a storage backend independent of the compute and memory resources for Stack.

  • External SAN storage cannot be used for Azure Stack Infrastructure components. You can however present external SAN storage for use in tenant VMs.
