Hewlett Packard Enterprise rounds out 3PAR lineup

HPE broadened its 3PAR lineup by adding migration tools and integrating its StoreOnce and StoreEver product lines.

Hewlett Packard Enterprise said it will integrate its StoreOnce and StoreEver storage products and integrate them with its 3PAR StoreServ systems.

In August, HPE refreshed its core 3PAR systems with the aim of winning over customers who were pondering all-flash arrays. The updates announced Monday are designed to migrate traditional storage workloads to flash.
