Can HDP Sandbox be used in production?

Has anyone used HDP Sandbox itself in production?

Definitely not advisable nor worth considering. It also would not be supported by Hortonworks support license.

The minimum cluster size for a production environment is typically seen as 3 management nodes that hold master services like namenode, zookeepers, etc + 4 data nodes that hold data in hdfs and also slave services.

The sandbox is a single node with everything, great for installing quickly, learning skills and perhaps doing simple demos ... but not production high availability, throughput, processing etc
