Storsimple and VSS Backup

Could someone help me to understand if Microsoft Storsimple is a VSS Provider?
Thank you

Can you elaborate on your question? Are you asking whether there is a hardware provider available for the said device? What particular model are you willing to leverage?

Yes, sure, I mean VSS HW Provider, in order to use a Off Host Backup Proxy! The model is StorSimple 8000 (but I would like if also 7000 and 5000 are VSS HW Provider).
I can't find this information on Microsoft Documentation.

Do you have any software coming with this storage? The easiest way to check if you have any VSS providers installed for this device is to run these commands:
Code: Select all
vssadmin list writers
vssadmin list providers
