3PAR Partners With PTC to Introduce Utility Storage to Singapore, Malaysia, and Indonesia

3PAR Expands Presence in Asia to Address Cloud Computing Demand Through Partnership With Longstanding Data Management Provider

FREMONT, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/21/09 -- 3PAR® (NYSE: PAR), the leading global provider of utility storage, announced today that it has expanded sales in Asia through a new channel partnership with data management provider PTC System (S) Pte Ltd., based in Singapore. PTC has agreed to sell and support 3PAR Utility Storage systems to enterprise customers in Southeast Asia -- including Singapore, Malaysia, and Indonesia -- as part of a focus on delivering storage integration for utility and cloud computing datacenters. PTC was incorporated in 1991 to address data management needs for the manufacturing sector and today has evolved to provide integrated IT across multiple industries and government organizations. PTC leverages advanced storage technologies with the goal of giving customers a competitive edge.

"Customers in Asia are facing the same challenges encountered by enterprises across the globe, such as the need to reduce costs, shrink datacenter footprint, ease data management, and speed time to resolution in support situations," said SS Lim, Managing Director, PTC. "Not only are 3PAR's highly virtualized systems purpose-built to address these needs, but the unique performance, cost-effective scalability, and automation features of 3PAR Utility Storage make it the ideal infrastructure for Software- and Storage-as-a-Service offerings that have emerged to address these same pain points."

Under the terms of this partnership, PTC has agreed to sell the complete range of 3PAR hardware and software products, including the 3PAR InServ® T-Class Storage Server with Thin Built In(TM), 3PAR Thin Provisioning, and 3PAR Dynamic Optimization. In addition, PTC offers customers full-scale services and support for the 3PAR Utility Storage platform as part of their complete data management and infrastructure offerings.

PTC's customer SAVVIS has deployed 3PAR Utility Storage globally within its utility and virtualized computing environments. Leveraging 3PAR Utility Storage has enabled the SAVVIS platform to autonomically optimize resources allocated to each user depending on dynamic requirements. As a result, customers are only charged for what they use, when they use it, thus benefiting from a true utility services environment.

"Our Virtual Services Delivery Platform built on 3PAR Utility Storage continues to be a key differentiator for SAVVIS," said Tan Aye See, SAVVIS Managing Director of Asia Pacific. "This competitive advantage has helped us penetrate regional markets quickly and effectively."

"The partnership between 3PAR and PTC positions us both to capitalize on the accelerating adoption of Storage- and Software-as-a-Service and associated demand for cloud computing infrastructure in Southeast Asia," said David Scott, 3PAR President and CEO. "Cloud computing service delivery models align extremely well with the pressures created by the global economic situation faced by the world today. This is why leading service providers like SAVVIS have chosen 3PAR to give them a competitive edge in growing their utility computing and utility storage environments."
