Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"The most valuable features are resiliency and data protection.""If you were comparing this solution to VMware, it has more features, and it's very fast on the recovery.""I've found the data protection features the most valuable.""The HPE Hyper Converged solution is used in a hybrid cloud configuration. We assess the disk space and partition additional capacity.""What I really like about this program, is that it needs little space and it works really fast, so it saves us time.""The most valuable feature is the in-built backup system. The backup speed is also excellent.""Hyper-convergence is the most valuable aspect of the solution. We can avoid downtime when there's maintenance or updates needed. Also, we have homogenous hardware, so we have a lot of trust in the solution's reliability.""The most valuable features of this solution are fast deployment, security, and it is easy to upgrade."

"I would rate the user-friendliness an eight out of ten.""The interface is very user-friendly.""Sangfor has many solutions, and you can easily manage their machine servers with just one management.

Cons
"A software-only version of the solution, without the hardware, would be nice.""One problem I've had is that I was trying to do a move and it was not working. I was given an error and a message asking me to shut down the machine first and then move it to another host.""The price can be improved. We would like to see support for some open source virtualization technology like for example KVM.""Some improvement is required in the availability of the data and performance. The solution is too expensive for our customers. The pricing should be lower.""The solution is not very stable.""The solution can be improved on the management side. More management features should be added to future releases.""The solution would be better served if it integrated with other solutions better.""Providing local technical support and improving the price are areas this service needs to consider improving."

More HPE Hyper Converged Cons »

"Sangfor does not support a SAS configuration, which is something that we would like.""The error reporting needs to be improved.""It can have more compatibility and new features. I would also like to see better performance. Some of the other HCI solutions already provide the SSD and flash storage and much higher Intel processors. Sangfor HCI can improve on that.""Its virtual machine tools can be improved. These tools should be enhanced for use in other applications and operating systems, such as Linux."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"It is an expensive solution, however. If they could adjust the pricing, that would be helpful.""The solution is too expensive for our customers. The pricing should be lower.""The solution is expensive - not only the hardware costs but server costs too. And the more you scale, the more expensive it gets.""There are costs in addition to the standard licensing fees."

More HPE Hyper Converged Pricing and Cost Advice »

"The price of Sangfor is cheaper than other competing products.""The pricing of Sangfor is very competitive.""It is in the middle range as compared to other hyper-converged infrastructure solutions. There is a three-year warranty on the hardware. The license also includes other features. Sangfor has included Continuous Data Protection (CDP) and a built-in firewall with the license. Other top brands, such as VxRail and VMware, require a separate license for such features."
