Ingram Micro announces free HP 3PAR certification
In addition, Ingram Micro and HP will help qualifying resellers cover the expense of bringing customers and prospects into the Buffalo Solution Center for a hands-on demonstration of the business and technical advantages of HP 3PAR Utility Storage. Both complimentary offers are available through the end of January 2012.
“Demand for high-end storage — particularly across datacenter, virtualization and cloud environments — is climbing at a strong pace and requiring more advanced solutions that can operate seamlessly as part of the physical and virtual network infrastructure,” said Scott Zahl, vice president and general manager, Advanced Computing Division, Ingram Micro U.S. “The addition of the new HP 3PAR Storage System within our Buffalo Solution Center combined with the free HP 3PAR certification training and business development assistance is a strong testimony to the investments we’re making within our Advanced Computing Division and VAR sales organization to give channel partners what they need to succeed across the board.”
“The need for enterprise-class storage for virtualized and cloud environments is growing at a rapid pace, and not surprisingly, so is the education needed to take advantage of it,” said Chris Riley, vice president, Americas, Storage, HP. “Together with Ingram Micro’s Advanced Computing Division resources, we’re offering training and certification at no cost that will enable resellers to easily as well as cost-effectively expand their storage businesses with HP 3PAR Utility Storage.”
