Requirement Analysis

“Hardware-Defined” has been constantly challenged by new IT issues and needs.

Large Investment

Investment in advance. Procurement
of dedicated hardware of various

Complex O&M

Scattered resources. Fragmented
management. Invisible O&M. Heavy
workload of strategic adjustment &
fault location.

Slow Project Initiation

Complicated platform design. Long cycle of procurement, deployment and coordination.

Lack of Scalability

Performance hardly scalable. Transformation done by hardware upgrade. High TCO.

“What "Software-Defined" is like in the Future
Continuously Matching the Changing IT Values and Needs

With the help of software-defined IT infrastructure, decouple the combination of hardware and software; integrate resources; redefine manageability and performance.
Lower the overall complexity of IT, reduce TCO while enhance efficiency; achieving the unification of the entire IT infrastructure, enabling it smoothly transit to cloud data center.

Best Practice of Software-Defined Data Center: Sangfor HCI

Driving Hyper-Convergence to Fully Converged

aSV (Compute Virtualization) | aNET (Network Virtualization) | aSAN (Storage Virtualization) | NFV (Network Function Virtualization)

Sangfor HCI consolidates traditional hardware-appliance-based security, IP network, storage network, server and storage into one tier of commodity hardware (x86 server), forming a standardized HCI unit. By building IT infrastructure with a standardized HCI vendor and realizing visible, centralized operation & management via a unified WEB platform, users can enjoy an ultra-simplified, on-demand IT framework that is evolvable.

Product Advantages

Ultra Simplified Operation

  • 1 integrated software stack.
  • Deploy infrastructure to support business in minutes.
  • "What You Draw is What You Get" topology.
  • Very limited manual operation is needed.

Reduced TCO & Pay as You Grow

  • Minimum 70% reduction in overall CapEx & Opex.
  • Up to 90% reduction in power, cooling & space.
  • Start with 1 commodity server & scale linearly according to your need without limits.
  • Shift your focus to business. IT could be a revenue generating department instead of a cost center.

High Performance

  • One single server to achieve 10Gbps virtual network throughput, read 60,000+ IOPS, write 17,000+ IOPS and storage capacity 20TB.
  • High stability and reliability ensured by vAD business clustering, HA (High Availability), distributed management platform, distrubuted virtual networking device, multi-coopies, back-up plans and ets.

Best NFV Functions

  • More flexible and scalable network & service provisioning.
  • Virtualized network functions can be easily moved to various locations in the network without having to install new equipment.
  • 3D protection inside-out: Kernal built-in WAF to protect aSV from web threats; distributed firewall to protect east-west traffic and vNGAF to safeguard south-north traffic.

Brand Recognition

Listed in the Gartner MQ x86 Server Virtualization Infrastructure

Leading Vendor in Asia

Already More than 200,000 VMs Running on HCI

Scenario Solutions

Server/Storage Virtualization

Think about the workload of running and maintaining various units in a legacy data center; think about the increased investment is data center as business grows; think about the amount of time left for IT to innovate; think about how the legacy data center is going to deal with data explosion and the trend of digitalization. Sangfor HCI can reduce TCO by 70% or more by eliminating IT silos, over-provisioning, and simplifying data center operations.


Test/development environments tend to rely heavily on VMs, yet usually the number of running VMs is limited due to the concern that things might be slowed down by them. Sangfor HCI is based on enterprise-class hardware that is specifically designed for virtualization, it is extremely agile and elastic in handling test/dev workload. Moreover, the test/dev environments created on HCI are completely isolated from the production environment, so that no bad code will ever be released into production.

Desktop Cloud/Docker

Sangfor HCI is the perfect foundation for desktop cloud applications. Through the integration of hardware and software, the user experience of a secured virtual desktop could beat that of traditional PC. Meanwhile, Sangfor HCI can work as a double-engine of VM and Docker, working as an excellent technology platform for Internet and software development scenarios.

DR/Active-Active DC

Sangfor HCI provides HA solution for cross-datacenter DR and applications. With the data backup and recovery mechanism, secured data storage and management can be achieved in a more economical way. Together with load balancing and HA virtualization software, continuous access to applications across datacenters can be guaranteed.
