LONDON -- 3PAR (NYSE Arca: PAR), the leading global provider of utility storage, announced today a new partnership with SYSDBA in South Africa to deliver innovative utility computing solutions built on 3PAR Utility Storage. SYSDBA offers a unique portfolio of products that collectively optimize and consolidate their clients’ datacenters by reducing management overhead and improving resource utilization, ultimately saving their clients money. 3PAR Utility Storage is designed to enable a new generation of utility computing applications such as delivery of enterprise IT as a utility service, cloud computing over the Web, and Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA)-based applications. The partnership with 3PAR allows SYSDBA to take virtualization beyond the server layer and into the storage infrastructure for greater consolidation, cost savings, and reduction of storage administration for their customers.

Under the terms of the agreement, SYSDBA is authorized to resell 3PAR InServ® Storage Servers and 3PAR InForm® software—including 3PAR Thin Provisioning, Virtual Copy, Remote Copy, Dynamic Optimization, and Virtual Domains—into the South African market. "South Africa, like the rest of the world, is experiencing a skills crisis," said Chris Bamber, Managing Director at SYSDBA. "Companies need to be able to do more in IT with flat or fewer resources. We chose to partner with 3PAR because their products allow organizations to master storage growth and to more easily implement new storage functionalities while reducing the day-to-day operations workload".
