A Glimpse into Sangfor HCI Reviews on Gartner Peer Insights
Customers from various industries and of varying organization sizes have kindly shared their opinions and experiences with Sangfor HCI. Let's delve into several reviews of Sangfor HCI on Gartner Peer Insights that fall within the 18-month submission period for the Gartner VoC for Full-Stack HCI Software, ending 30 June 2023.
In one review titled "Best HCI When It Comes To Recoverability, Reliability, Security And Productivity," the Division Head of IT of a Finance industry customer scored Sangfor HCI 5/5 for each category (Product Capabilities, Integration & Deployment, Service & Support, and Evaluation & Contracting) and left the following comment:
I'm a user of traditional setup where we have several host and using enterprise storage, the performance is acceptable since it is using SSD's. But maintenance is quite challenging because I need someone who will manage the server, the storage, the SAN switch and the hypervisor. With HCI the management is so easy and you don't need different Engineers to manage the infrastructure. I can say that performance of our Systems have improved so much...we have this one system wherein 1 query takes more or less 30minutes, but when we migrated to HCI query is now only 1minute.
In another review, the Manager of IT Services of a telecommunications industry customer with revenues exceeding 30B USD also scored full marks for each category and said this about Sangfor HCI:
The HCI Server run stably since it online. With it powerful feature, I can run my business system without any problem.
The Head of the IT Department of a finance industry customer wrote a review titled "Creating New Server Very Easy And Excellent Quality Support Team" and made the following comment:
Simple to maintain all the VM and Excellent GUI, software-defined IT infrastructure make the product more effective and efficient, Performance better than old system. And which makes me most happy is…. if we have any technical issue, the Technical Engineer are ready to support with quality of excellent skill to be delivered even though it’s not in office hours.
