Sangfor Enterprise Cloud - aCloud

Sangfor aCloud is the new generation of cloud IT architecture. It is built on innovative hyper-converged technology, with complete IT infrastructure and O&M management service capabilities. It can carry key business applications such as core databases, ERP, financial systems, production systems.

Unlike traditional cloud solutions, Sangfor Enterprise Cloud built on HCI is more simplified and flexible, enabling users to quickly build business-driven cloud computing data centers; no matter it’s private, hybrid or industrial cloud. It delivers to users IT resource pool, IT as a Service, and automated IT O&M, making it easy for key business to migrate to the cloud. It is the preferred solution for government, organization and enterprise users.

Enterprise Cloud Built on Hyper-Converged Infrastructure

Traditional cloud computing architecture is complex. The overall performance of the platform is limited by physical appliances. Management of each component cannot be unified. Security device cannot effectively handle security threats in cloud data center. At the same time, the fragmented operation and maintenance tools make O&M more complicated, and agility of the entire data center cannot be achieved.

2 Devices: x86 Server + Switch

Key Applications Migrating to Cloud

Due to the lack of complete security system and reliability guarantee for traditional cloud computing architectures, critical applications migrating to cloud is quite difficult. With the advantages of hyper-converged technology, Sangfor has made special optimizations for the high requirements of stability, performance and network security for critical applications. Users can deploy database clusters such as Oracle RAC and key applications such as ERP to Sangfor Enterprise Cloud, making all applications agile and resilient, and letting IT better drive business transformation.

The unique value of hyper integration and cloud management.

Bring Applications and Infrastructure Togethe

  1. Self-Service Portal

    Self-service portal for single sign-on. Administrators and users can complete all operations on their respective portal views

  2. Multi-Tenant Management

    3 levels of management rights. Each tenant includes tenant administrators and tenant users, so as to avoid tenant network security threats and support tenant resource quotas.

  3. Process Approval

    User initiates resource request. Administrators of different levels respond according to process. Administrators customizing process is supported, transfer of approval rights among different administrators at the same level is supported.

  4. Visualized O&M

    The “What You Draw is What You Get” operation and maintenance mode allows users to easily do network configuration by dragging and dropping. You can see the traffic of each node in the network at a glance.

  5. Billing/Metering

    Resources consumed by each tanant can be billed and metered by pre-defined charge policy, billing reports can be exported with detailed consumption record.

  6. Multi-Cluster Management

    HCI clusters across different sites can be managed by aCMP in a centralized way to simplify O&M of multiple clusters.

Build the smallest physical unit in data center, integrating compute, storage, network and security virtualization.

  1. Multiple Options

    E2E solution with Sangfor brand appliance or our OEM partner DELL. Or adopt the Software Version to protect your investment by reuseing existing servers.

  2. Resources Monitoring

    HCI management platform has rich monitoring functions, which can monitor CPU, memory, network traffic, disk IO and other performance indicators to help management get the real-time resource usage status.

  3. Distributed Firewall

    Integrated distributed firewall protects user's private network. Virtual machine can be migrated to any host and the original firewall policy is retained. Administrator can implement unified deployment of firewall policy through simple configuration management.

  4. Heterogeneous Virtualization Management

    HCI architecture can centrally manage heterogeneous virtualization resources. Administrator can do resource application and allocation, monitoring and O&M in a unified interface.

  5. CDP & Data Backu

    Provide CDP (Continuous Data Protection) for virtual machine. When storage fails, data can be recovered in seconds to reduce business loss caused by faults. HCI platform has multiple backup functions, including mirror backup, application-level data backup, and storage of multiple copies.

  6. Disaster Recovery

    Disaster recovery has never been easier & more powerful. Reach industry's shortest 1-second RPO with only 5 steps.

  7. aSEC Integration

    Next-Generation Firewall, Internet Access Management, VPN, Application Delivery, and WAN Optimization can all be deployed on virtual machine to achieve comprehensive security protection of the cluster.

  8. Configuration Management

    HCI management platform can manage and put resources in groups. Virtual machine, network, storage and other resources can be arranged and configured through the editor.

Enterprise Cloud Core Technical Advancements

  1. More Simplified Architecture

    Relying on HCI technology to simplify data center into 2 devices: x86 servers and switches - reducing initial investment and cost of learning.

  2. More Convenient Expansion

    Simply plug the HCI appliance into aCloud management platform to achieve automatic capacity expansion. The service does not stop during capacity expansion and supports high-performance requirements.

  3. Easier Application Deploymen

    aCloud has a built-in P2V migration tool that migrates applications to cloud with only 1-click and improves IT innovation efficiency.

  4. More Reliable Data

    Enterprise Cloud guarantees data reliability through CDP, data multi-copy, virtual machine backup, application data backup, Internet access management, etc., so that there won’t be any data loss and cross-regional data backup is available.

  5. Stable & Efficient Carrying of Key Business

    Unique optimization technology for key applications, supporting Oracle RAC cluster, SQL Server cluster, Kingdee, YonYou and ERP, etc., ensuring operation stability of key software businesses with up to 99.9999% reliability.

  6. Multi-Dimension Security Protection

    Built-in distributed firewall, WAF, cloud anti-virus, etc., making business applications running on cloud platform have a complete security protection system, comply with requirements of classified protection of information security, and effectively prevent east-west security threats within data center.

  7. More Efficient Security Policy Management

    Single sign-on management manages cloud resources and security components, reduces cloud security costs, deploys security policies, processes and audit management specifications more efficiently.

  8. Visualized, Simplified O&M

    nterprise Cloud has comprehensive resource management capabilities, configurations can be deployed using “What You Draw is What You Get”, reducing application deployment time, fault location and repair time. And it requires no special training to use the platform.
