ORLANDO, Fla. -- 3PAR (NYSE: PAR), the leading global provider of utility storage, introduced today the 3PAR InServ® F-Class Storage Servers, built to overcome the technical limitations of traditional midrange arrays, offering features and benefits typically associated with high-end arrays but at a price that targets the midrange. Scaling up to four clustered, Mesh-Active controller nodes, InServ F-Class arrays are designed to eliminate the scalability, efficiency, and management sacrifices typical with midrange arrays. F-Class arrays are ideal for customers who desire an alternative to the tradeoffs imposed by legacy midrange architectures but cannot justify the premium cost of high-end arrays. F-Class arrays are designed to save organizations money in three ways: by allowing them to purchase up to 50% fewer arrays, by eliminating up to 75% of the capacity, power, cooling, and floor space required with traditional storage, and by enabling customers to spend up to 90% less time managing their storage.

"In these difficult times companies are placing more demands on their midrange storage systems than ever before. They are expanding their use of server virtualization, disk-based backup/recovery, and business analytics," said Richard Villars, Vice President of Storage Systems research at IDC. "Solutions like 3PAR's new F-Class arrays—with their meshed, quad-controller architecture—provide companies with peace-of-mind that they can rely on an efficient and simple midrange storage system that won't run out of horsepower as their needs grow."
