3PAR, TechSoup Help Nonprofits

FREMONT, Calif. -- 3PAR (NYSE Arca: PAR), the leading global provider of utility storage, announced today that nonprofit TechSoup Global has chosen 3PAR Utility Storage to lower their own IT costs while delivering an estimated $312 million in annualized IT savings to other nonprofits in more than 190 countries. Over the past two decades, TechSoup Global’s innovative programs have supported social benefits organizations on the international, national, and local level by helping them address unmet technology needs. With their entire donation program managed online through the Website, the nonprofit chose 3PAR Utility Storage to build a resilient, high-performance storage infrastructure that would enable future scalability while keeping costs to a minimum.

“The other platforms we looked at had serious drawbacks such as complex management interfaces, inability to stand by performance numbers, and lack of fully-developed thin provisioning capabilities,” said Tim Suttle, Director of Information Systems Infrastructure for TechSoup Global. “3PAR are the innovators of thin provisioning, and although other vendors are now trying to catch up, they just can’t match 3PAR.”
