It’s time, yet again, to welcome the Gartner Critical Capabilities report releases, a head-to-head comparison of notable products and services offered in the information technology industry, and the go-to information technology analysis tool for enterprise.

Hyperconverged infrastructure is fast becoming a critical component for enterprises requiring a simplified, consolidated and easy to manage hardware platform with more simplicity, efficiency and agility. For small and mid-sized business without data centres and technical specialists, HCI is fast becoming the solution of choice. Currently, less than 15% of edge locations are operating on an HCI infrastructure, with Gartner predicting a steady upsurgence in deployments, anticipated to reach over 35% by 2023.

As a recent inductee into Gartner's Magic Quadrant for hyperconverged infrastructure, those seeking more information on Sangfor’s HCI offering, aCloud, need look no further than Gartner’s recent Critical Capabilities report released on the 26 November 2019. In Y19Q4, Gartner’s review of the HCI market defines the critical capabilities of core IT, cloud, edge, mission critical and VDI in terms of hardware, abstraction, data services, AI functions, management, software stack, location, scaling, service & support and security.

Gartner praises Sangfor aCloud provisions for easier resource monitoring, VM life-cycle management, backup configuration, storage allocation, networking, firewall and VM management. Of note is Sangfor’s continued dedication to the release of more value-added services, including the integration of VMware vCenter migration and a reduced CDP, allowing for 1-second increments and 3-minute recovery for backup VMs. To ensure more versatility, aCloud provides both a software and appliance model, giving customers the freedom of choice.

Sangfor aCloud is also recognized for its expanded DR and cloud management functions and adding a stretched cluster and vGPU solutions, all functions designed to improve performance, manageability and reliability. Of special note is the expansion of the Sangfor Community, a technical resource for online support, guidelines and community sharing, putting a wealth of information at the disposal of all Sangfor customers.  An emphasized focus on localization of 24/7 services and after-sales partnership has gained Sangfor international recognition in the EMEA and APAC regions.

Sangfor aCloud has proven itself a vital future-proofing solution for world class enterprises, currently serving over 6,000 customers globally, including PT ASABRI, TEK Group Italy, Crowne Plaza Vietnam and TOSHIBA TEC Singapore.
