Since HP won the $2.3B battle over 3PAR, they have brought the enterprise-class features of 3PAR storage into a mid-range solution offering. This pre-configured, converged storage platform combines HP 3PAR software with HP EVA storage arrays and HP BladeSystem ProLiant server hardware.
SearchStorage.com recently published their 2013 purchasing intentions survey, and concluded that:
- The largest chunk of IT budget goes to storage systems
- 60% of companies say they are using more storage because of virtualization
- 25% say cloud storage services will play a major role in their future strategy
Because the largest chunk of an IT budget is spent on storage, I asked Softchoice Solutions Architect Adam Wolfson to give us his opinion on why HP 3PAR storage may be right for you.
