THEINFOPRO STUDY: 3PAR TAKES TOP HONORS AMONG MIDSIZE ENTERPRISES

I like 3PAR guys for their excpetional and unique approach to storage challenges. So covering and watching them receive such honors is no surprise to me ;-)


Fremont, CA
, February 14, 2008--3PAR® (NYSE Arca: PAR), the leading global provider of utility storage, announced today that the 3PAR InServ® S800 Storage Server was cited most frequently as a “Most Exciting Product in Use” by midsize enterprise storage end users in Wave 10 of the TheInfoPro’s™ (TIP) Wave 10 Midsize Enterprise (MSE) Storage Study. In addition, 3PAR was cited as the leader in “Customer Fulfilment,” and in sustaining the highest level of customer loyalty, with 100% of current 3PAR users indicating they would not consider switching vendors. 3PAR was also cited as one of the top “Most Exciting Storage Vendors” for the midsize enterprise, which TIP defines as companies with revenues between $150 Million and $1 Billion. Many of 3PAR’s customers in this segment include service providers and Internet/Web 2.0 companies.

Additionally, the Wave 10 MSE Storage Study indicates that 3PAR has the largest percentage of new customers in this market, with 50% of those interviewed indicating they switched to 3PAR within the last 12 months. When asked to rate storage vendors on a scale of 1 to 4, participants ranked 3PAR as “excellent” (4 out of 4) in the areas of technical innovation, product quality, product performance, delivery as promised, sales force, and ease of doing business.

"The vendors that top our list have remained relatively unchanged over the past four waves of our Storage Study,” said Robert Stevenson, Managing Director of Storage Research for TIP. “However, new results in Wave 10 indicate that innovative new vendors such as 3PAR are enjoying accelerating momentum."

“From the Wave 10 findings it’s clear that our track record of lowering the total cost of storage for customers, combined with our innovative products such as 3cV and Virtual Domains, are not just attractive to large enterprises, but also to medium-sized enterprises including service providers and Internet/Web 2.0 companies,” said David Scott, 3PAR President and CEO. “We are extremely excited to see the benefits of 3PAR Utility Storage catching on within an increasing number of these organizations in TIP’s Wave 10 study."

Redhot Future Of IT Part I :Marketing yourself as IT professional

I had promised about the "RedHot IT Future Series" and so we discuss here how you should market yourself EFFECTIVELY as an IT professional in this new (and dangerous) web age! Web is the place where you're a hero today and villain tomorrow. While there are lots of professionals who are active on the web, not all are enjoying a good reputation as they got "personal" with others and got into a cockfight. The passive IT professional has nothing to lose but nothing to gain at all!

I know "marketing" might seem as a greasy term but the idea is to have the truth about you out there. You know you're a good person and your family knows that you're really smart person but the rest of the world doesn't!

So the question is how do I market myself on the web as a true "nouveau IT professional". A guy who companies will be tempted to pick up the phone as say "Hey, we wanna talk with you. Can you fly over to Palo Alto (or Guatemala or Johan…

Redhot Future Of IT Part 2 :Virtualized Workplaces

Click on the title to hear what I have to say, alternatively click here to listen to what I have to say here.

So what is a virtualized workplace? Does it mean it does not exist? That it's virtual? Well in a certain way YES. This is where the future of our workplace is going to be. Well it is already a reality in some countries.

OK lets start by asking ourselves these questions:
Do you really bond with your colleagues? (think Team cohesiveness)
Do you spend great amount of hours talking about great things that you will do together? (think collaboration)
Do you really feel that you give 100% at work? (think effectiveness)
What do you really miss at your desk? (think personalization)
Is your desk comfortable enough? (Again think optimizing personalization, OK you have done your best to make it your place)Does it really matter to your employer that you are there for him/her? (think commitment)
Or do you get micromanaged over petty issues? (think mismanagement)
Do you see your employees perfor…
