FREMONT, Calif. -- 3PAR (NYSE Arca: PAR), the leading global provider of utility storage, announced today the introduction of 3cV, an innovative blueprint for the virtual datacenter. First coined by Deutsche Bank, a leading global bank, “3cV” stands for the combination of the 3PAR InServ® Storage Server, HP BladeSystem c-Class, and VMware® Infrastructure. These elements combine to form a complete utility computing offering that can enable customers to halve server, storage, and operational costs and to gain instant agility.

“With 3cV, we have achieved remarkable gains in business agility and cost reduction for a broad range of applications including our property management system, databases, messaging, Web servers, and file servers,” said Rich Jackson, Vice President of Technology Operations at Hilton Grand Vacations. “With 3cV, we have quadrupled administrative efficiency and can now provision virtualized servers and storage within minutes versus weeks.”

Besides Hilton Grand Vacations, many other leading enterprises including Ariba, Deutsche Bank, Martin's Point Health Care, and SAVVIS have adopted 3cV in their datacenters as a virtualized computing architecture. “SAVVIS is focused on providing carrier-class integrated IT infrastructure solutions that tap into advanced technologies such as virtualization and automation to add value for our enterprise customers in the form of better performance, lower cost, and higher availability,” said Bryan Doerr, Chief Technology Officer for SAVVIS. “Using 3cV, we have been able to significantly broaden our portfolio of hosting services that deliver these benefits.”
