HP wins bidding war over 3PAR

3PAR’s leadership reportedly preferred Dell’s offer because they believed the company would have more autonomy there than under HP, the world’s largest PC manufacturer. In a statement 3PAR’s board said HP’s offers constituted a “superior proposal.”

3PAR is considered a leader in producing hardware for corporate data centers and other institutions with high-end remote storage needs. The heated battle over the firm is evidence that neither Dell nor HP wanted its rival to gain an advantage in the market for cloud storage, which increasingly requires vendors to provide not just hardware but also software, support and hosting services.
