Is HP Prepping for 3PAR?

Hewlett-Packard apparently is setting the table for its presumed incorporation of scale-out virtualized storage maker 3PAR, which could happen as soon as today. Although its bidding war with Dell was not a done deal by midday Pacific time on Sept. 1, HP held the upper hand with what 3PAR’s board of directors is calling a “superior” offer of $2 billion. Dell had until end of business Sept. 1 to increase its current $1.8 billion bid in an effort to supercede HP.

In apparent anticipation of the addition of the 3PAR intellectual property and engineering staff, HP Enterprise Services announced new solutions around storage tiering and thin provisioning for its product line. This is all aimed at improving organization and management of virtualized storage environments.
