Sangfor + Arcserve: 'The New Generation of HCI Solutions with Guaranteed Data Availability'05/02/2017
HONG KONG, Jan. 25, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Network security and cloud computing solutions provider Sangfor Technologies and Arcserve, a leading global data protection and recovery software provider, held a joint event in Hong Kong to announce the joining of forces of Sangfor HCI and Arcserve UDP, which will bring users a flexible, efficient and secured IT architecture with assured recovery.
The concept of HCI has been heated mainly for two reasons: First, its growth potential; second, in the future HCI will be a more reasonable mode to deploy IT architecture. In the view of Sangfor Hong Kong Sales Director Ringo Yiu, the main reason for the popularity of HCI lies in the needs of users. Specifically from a cost perspective, with HCIa user's total cost of ownership (TCO) will be effectively reduced; time to market can be shortened from months to days and it can be easily scaled out, like building something with Lego blocks.
Sangfor HCI consolidates traditional hardware-appliance-based security, IP network, storage network, server and storage into one tier of commodity hardware (x86 server). It is a holistic data center solution that can realize software-defined and the cloudization of data centers.
As more and more companies migrate to the cloud, they need a mature and reliable solution to move, replicate and protect important data. Moreover, it should be able to backup critical systems or data online, restoring them to different servers at different speeds. And this data protection architecture needs to be easy to use and deploy. Arcserve's UDP fits just right to that description and that's why the two companies decided to join forces.
Sangfor HCI with Arcserve UDP can achieve a new local/remote automatic/manual backup and recovery program, and use Active-Standby to automatically pull up the disaster recovery scheme. At the same time, the solution also supports the combination of Sangfor HCI and VMware in the production end and backup end; Sangfor HCI can be established as disaster recovery solution in a customer's existing VMware or physical data center.
Arcserve Hong Kong Channel Director Andy Hung said, "Hong Kong is a market with great potential in the Asia Pacific region. Fast pace in industries makes people have keen senses in using data to enhance services. Sangfor HCI + Arcserve UDP can provide customers with a data center cloudization and disaster recovery solutions that are secure, flexible, scalable and easily operatable with high cost-performance ratio. Customers can thus enjoy the best of both worlds, fully enjoying the advantages of virtualized IT architecture."
