Overview

In reality, branch offices face IT obstacles such as lack of specialized IT personnel and physical space and power resources needed to support traditional datacenter platforms. They expect to be more productive to meet the increasing business needs; they want to be able to quickly set up a light data center and achieve rapid gateway deployment in order to fulfill requirements like securing operating systems, providing fast access and enabling remote office, etc. Sangfor aBOS (the Mini HCI) is specifically designed to cater to this demand. With virtualization technology, it only takes one server to provide Network Function Virtualization (NFV), virtual switch, virtual router and other virtual services through a unified management platform for resource allocation. Inheriting Sangfor’s strength in security and optimization, NFV allows users to deploy vIAM, vAF, vWANO, vSSL and etc. according to their needs.

VMware NSX is the network virtualization platform for the Software-Defined Data Center (SDDC). By bringing the operational model of a virtual machine to your data center network, you can transform the economics of network and security operations. NSX lets you treat your physical network as a pool of transport capacity, with network and security services attached to VMs with a policy-driven approach.
