NetApp and 3Par become storage buddies

Block meets file

Beginner's guide to SSL certificates

3PAR and Network Appliance have signed an agreement to consolidate their block and file storage services into a single SAN/NAS pool.

The deal, announced Tuesday, allows 3Par's InServ system owners to connect with NetApp V-Series 3000 or 6000 systems and create a block and file data hybrid. As you would expect, direct block access is provided by 3PAR and file access comes via the NetApp kit. The companies have also inked a cooperative support agreement for both sets of products.

While the units must be connected through Fibre Channel, iSCSI can be attached to NetApp's V-Series gear.

Both companies tout the agreement as a customer support decision, but the pact also lets 3Par add a big name behind their Fibre and SCSI block storage boxes, and NetApp expands its V-Series support while keeping the spotlight on its filer head and software.

Individual components of the offering will continue to be sold separately by both companies. ®
