If you haven't come across this before, a Sandbox is a non-production CRM instance which gives administrators the ability to have a separate database for testing or training purposes. 
Who can have a Sandbox Instance? 
For CRM Online customers, if you have 25 or more Professional licences you have the option to have a Sandbox instance at no additional cost. CRM Online customers with fewer than 25 professional licences have the option to purchase a non-production instance. 
 
What else is it useful for? 
With CRM Online 2016 Update 1 a new backup and restore facility was added for those with a Sandbox instance. See our separate FAQ for futher infomation.
