3PAR, Compellent, HP, Storage
Hi folks! So as you know there was an all out bidding war for 3PAR where HP and Dell were concerned.
Well now Dell has purchased Compellent. How much? Apparently to the tune of $820 million. This was a much cheaper deal than the 3PAR acquisition. The questions is, will they be able to leverage it as good as they could have 3PAR? It’s not secret to anyone that 3PAR was Dell’s first choice.
Compellent has a “compelling” solution, pardon the pun, but 3PAR with their storage offerings and HP backing them, will not take this battle lying down. It should be interesting to see how the storage battle plays out this year.
