3PAR equipment Handles Data Storage Chores

The DAS data center in Atlanta includes storage controller equipment from 3PAR, a company HP acquired in 2010. The data center also houses HP StoreOnce Backup Systems, for data protection during migration and consolidation, along with an HP ESL G3 Tape Library.

 

Hewlett-Packard gave tech reporters and bloggers a tour Sept. 6 of a new data center it developed for Diversified Agency Services (DAS), a marketing services firm, in Atlanta. DAS is part of Omnicon, the parent company of about 165 marketing, advertising and public relations agencies. While HP networking equipment abounds in the new data center, it also recommended the installation of some equipment from rival Cisco Systems in a few instances. DAS executives said HP acknowledged that some existing Cisco switches should stay where they are because some Cisco routers are more robust than HP’s and because HP doesn’t yet have a firewall product on the market.
