London, UK, 31st January 2005 â Paremus today announced the addition of 3PAR, the leading supplier of utility storage, to the recently revealed Infiniflow Utility Datacenter Ecosystemâ¢ (UDEâ¢).
3PAR offers a simple, efficient and highly scalable storage array for storage consolidation, utility computing and performance intensive applications. With breakthrough hardware and software innovations, 3PAR Utility Storage overcomes the cost, complexities and functional limitations of traditional storage solutions.
"Ultimately, the performance of any distributed compute architecture is limited by the need to persist application state, and the performance of the state persistence mechanism, is in turn, ultimately dictated by the performance of the underlying data storage subsystems used, " said Dr. Richard Nicholson, CTO, Paremus. "For this reason 3PAR storage was selected as the ideal storage platform for Infiniflow."
The Infiniflow Utility Datacenter Ecosystem describes an environment where enterprises can build business applications on a self-healing, dynamically scalable and functionally evolvable compute fabric, providing unprecedented cost, resilience and agility benefits. This ecosystem comprises best-of-breed products from vendors that share this vision, and at the core is Infiniflow â The Enterprise Grid Fabricâ¢ developed by Paremus.
"IT organisations implementing 3PAR Utility Storage can dramatically increase overall service levels while reducing their storage costs by 50%. 3PARâs value is a perfect compliment to the self-healing and agility characteristics of Infiniflow, forming the basis for a utility datacenter solution that is truly differentiated," said Steve Crimi, Senior Director Business Development and Alliances, 3PAR. "3PAR and Paremus work closely together to deliver breakthrough utility computing solutions to financial industry customers."
"Virtualized storage with dynamic provisioning is a critical component of the utility datacenter," said Mike Francis, Business Development Manager at Paremus, "and 3PARâs InServ Storage Servers provide a simple, flexible and cost-effective platform for Infiniflow to exploit."
