IT is a fast changing industry. With organizations trying to follow the trend of digitalization and stay agile at all time, IT departments are looking at growing and seemingly endless requests for better and faster services delivery, as well as increased efficiency and robust operating environment. The driving force that ensures your business stays ahead and evolves smoothly, is your data center.


In traditional data center, the provision of new services relies on the purchase of new hardware; not to mention the investment in planning 3-5 years ahead and continuous upgrade. Traditional data center is also very delicate in many ways, the work it takes to keep it running properly is complex and tedious and that has occupied the majority of time of IT department’s daily work.


With the emergence of “The Era of Cloud”, increasingly people are resorting to Cloud to deal with the hurdles physical data center brings – namely expensiveness, inefficiency and difficulty to manage – in business transitions. However, it’s not the case that you could enjoy the full breadth of benefits that go with cloud at a snap of finger. Easily put your IT architecture needs to be simplified and automated.

To address all the above mentioned needs, a new type of platform has risen: Hyper-Converged Infrastructure.







Sangfor HCI at a Glance

  • 5-Tier Architecture Consolidated into 1
  • 1 Single User Interface Managing All IT Resources

Sangfor Hyper-Converged Infrastructure consolidates traditional hardware-appliance-based security, IP network, storage network, server and storage into one tier of commodity hardware (x86 server). The foundation of all these are compute virtualization (aSV), storage virtualization (aSAN) and Network virtualization (aNET), on top of that we have NFV integration including all our network applications such as NGAF/IAM/WANO.




Product Advantages






Ultra Simplified Operation

  • 1 integrated software stack.
  • Deploy infrastructure to support business in minutes.
  • "What You Draw is What You Get" topology.
  • Very limited manual operation is needed.

Reduced TCO & Pay as You Grow

  • Minimum 70% reduction in overall CapEx & Opex.
  • Up to 90% reduction in power, cooling & space.
  • Start with 1 commodity server & scale linearly according to your need without limits.
  • Shift your focus to business. IT could be a revenue generating department instead of a cost center.

High Performance

  • One single server to achieve 10Gbps virtual network throughput, read 60,000+ IOPS, write 17,000+ IOPS and storage capacity 20TB.
  • High stability and reliability ensured by vAD business clustering, HA (High Availability), distributed management platform, distrubuted virtual networking device, multi-coopies, back-up plans and ets.

Best NFV Functions

  • More flexible and scalable network & service provisioning.
  • Virtualized network functions can be easily moved to various locations in the network without having to install new equipment.
  • 3D protection inside-out: Kernal built-in WAF to protect aSV from web threats; distributed firewall to protect east-west traffic and vNGAF to safeguard south-north traffic.

Scenario Solutions



Server & Storage Virtualization

Think about the workload of running and maintaining various units in a legacy data center; think about the increased investment is data center as business grows; think about the amount of time left for IT to innovate; think about how the legacy data center is going to deal with data explosion and the trend of digitalization. Sangfor HCI can reduce TCO by 70% or more by eliminating IT silos, over-provisioning, and simplifying data center operations.

Test/Development

Test/development environments tend to rely heavily on VMs, yet usually the number of running VMs is limited due to the concern that things might be slowed down by them. With Sangfor HCI that concern can be completely eliminated, as hyper-converged infrastructure is based around real, enterprise-class hardware that is specifically designed for virtualization, it is extremely agile and elastic in handling test/dev workload. Moreover, the test/dev environments created on HCI are completely isolated from the production environment, so that no bad code will ever be released into production.

SME

Due to budget constraints, SMEs sometimes are reluctant to upgrade their IT. Also, they don’t think it’s worth stopping IT production just for upgrade. The consequence of that kind of mindset is outdated technology, which then leads to frustrated employees with limited IT functionality or even worse, disastrous system breakdown. However, with Sangfor HCI, SMEs can now enjoy continuous technology refresh and implementation of new systems via this on-premise solution that enables cloud-like elasticity, agility, and economics with superior performance, reliability, and availability.

ROBO (Remote Office Branch Office)

As today’s enterprises add additional office locations, they are also adding expensive hardware and support challenges for IT. They lack physical space and power resources that traditional datacenter platforms need, and in most cases there is no qualified IT staff on site to manage servers, storage and backup at the branch. These will all have a negative impact on business productivity and ultimately business results. The implementation of Sangfor HCI can eliminate IT infrastructure cost, complexity and the need for specialized personnel in remote offices, providing them with effortless operations and flexible scalability.
