DOVER, NH--(Marketwired - Feb 11, 2014) - Accelerating its position as the recognized leader in third-party maintenance and support, Ardent Support Technologies today announced the company is further expanding technology support to include HP 3PAR Maintenance. As part of the company's broad portfolio of independent, multi-vendor hardware and software support, the new offering empowers customers to better manage and maintain their complex hardware environments.
According to recent analyst reports, HP continues to drive market share in its converged storage business. The HP 3PAR platform increasingly plays an integral role in today's hardware infrastructure -- demonstrating more than 300 percent year over year growth in Q3 2014.
Ardent brings nearly a decade of experience working with HP technology -- now to include 3PAR. This HP infrastructure offers highly scalable, and cost-efficient storage -- allowing customers to realize new levels of energy and overhead efficiencies. The converged platform is specifically designed to help customers make the transition to virtual and cloud infrastructures.
"3PAR is an extremely powerful storage system and one of the top midrange systems in the market today. However, it takes the engineering knowledge base and commitment from a company like Ardent to be able to provide the high level of support required by HP 3PAR users," said Jim Stevens, Vice President Sales and Marketing, Ardent Support Technologies. "With some of the market's deepest expertise working with HP storage systems, it's a natural progression for us to help customers by offering them our full 3PAR support value proposition. It is by far the most comprehensive HP 3PAR maintenance offering in the industry."
