Challenges:

As business in Crowne Plaza Danang grows, accumulated data and information stored in their physical servers and storage have become one of their biggest issues to ensure seamless productivity. Employees having hard time to access to those data stored in their physical servers and storage due to the large amount of data transmission within the internal network as well as the obsolete physical hardware of those servers and storage.

Besides, Mr. Shan, IT manager of Crowne Plaza have to manage a bunch of other tasks with his team, which makes it even more unrealistic to have them optimize the current user experience of those servers and storage with the existing hardware platform.


Sangfor HCI Solution:

Sangfor has designed a whole new server and storage solution for Crowne Plaza along with a virtualization platform which is much easier to manage, highly scalable, and with seamless network design.

The solution consists 4 physical servers, all these 4 servers will be grouped together with a process named “Clustering”. Once it’s clustered, the 4 physical servers will merge into 1 logical resources pool and share those resources to all the virtual machines, virtual storage, and virtual network devices integrated in Sangfor HCI. Sangfor HCI allows redundant copy of a virtualized server to run on a different node within a cluster, which could help Crowne Plaza ensure the availability of their data.

Furthermore, the virtual network platform in Sangfor HCI allows user to seamlessly design or create their own virtual topology from the console.

The virtual network platform helps Crowne Plaza by providing the freedom to add or remove virtual routers/switches as they want, as well as connect or disconnect those servers in any way they desire.

In short, Sangfor HCI does not only provide a virtualization platform for servers and storage. Instead it has greatly reduced the workload of server maintenance tasks for Mr. Shan and his IT team. Moreover, performance has been sharply improved by the virtualization platform as well, as all of those resources like CPU, memory and storage does not have to traverse through multiple internal network layers.
