Stable, good pricing and licensing, and useful CDP feature

What is our primary use case?

We use it for SAP products and some other infrastructure applications. We are using its latest version.

Pros and Cons

  • "The Continuous Data Protection (CDP) feature is one of the good features."
  • "Its virtual machine tools can be improved. These tools should be enhanced for use in other applications and operating systems, such as Linux."

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend this product because of its pricing. It doesn't require a separate license for features such as Continuous Data Protection. I would rate Sangfor HCI an eight out of ten.

A stable and scalable solution with regular updates and competitive pricing

What is our primary use case?

A client is using it to build a high availability system to output many virtual machines, save power, and scale it up without the need to subscribe to a cloud provider like Amazon. It is their own HCI.

Pros and Cons

  • "Sangfor has many solutions, and you can easily manage their machine servers with just one management. They're always striving for greatness, and they continuously update their products. For example, they have now built endpoint security within the firewall. They are continuously improving not only the security but also all other products."
  • "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."

What other advice do I have?

The biggest lesson that I have learned by using this product is to not judge a product by its price. Sangfor HCI is competitive in terms of price, and it has good features and functionality. I would recommend this solution to others. I am pretty satisfied with Sangfor products, and I want other people to also experience Sangfor. I would rate Sangfor HCI a nine out of ten. It has great features, but there is always room for improvement. I am looking forward to more features in the future.
