Three’s a crowd as behemoths battle for market power

ECMPlus.com – by Paul Quigley – Hewlett Packard’s eleventh hour bid for data storage bellwether 3Par has knocked Dell into the sidewall. Aftar having acquired the likes of EDS, Palm and 3Com – as well as the absorption of Compay – over recent times, the move for the data storage firm will be something the two IT vendors look set to fight tooth and nail over.

Given the recent signifcance of EMC and IBM both zoning in on both private cloud and generic, the HP Dell duel looks set to be just the first of a new salvo of similar storage skirmishes.
