HP’s 3Par storage improved features redefine the storage platform
In 2011, Hewlett-Packard (or HP) (HPQ) launched HP P10000 3PAR Storage Systems, in accordance with its Software defined storage strategy. When it was built, it kept the enterprise-class virtual and cloud-based data centers in mind. This move was achieved through HP’s acquisition of 3PAR—a leading global provider of utility storage—in September 2010 for $2.35 billion.
