Hewlett-Packard announced that it has completed the integration of technology from newly acquired utility storage vendor 3PAR, which advances its converged cloud computing strategy.

With the completed integration, HP also introduced new storage offerings for virtualization and data deduplication.

“Our clients tell us their journey to the cloud will be one of the most critical transitions for them this decade,” David Scott, senior vice president for HP’s StorageWorks division, said in a statement. “HP 3PAR Utility Storage meets their demand for a new storage architecture specifically designed for IT as a Service.”

The 3PAR Utility Storage system can now be fully managed as part of HP CloudSystem, a complete integrated system to build and deliver services across private, public and hybrid cloud environments. HP said the combination of products is aimed at providing clients with the ability to reduce cloud application deployment time from days to minutes, as well as improving the operational efficiency of storage management tenfold and cutting storage costs by up to 50%.

The HP X9300 Network Storage Gateway, which was built on IBRIX technology, has been qualified for use with the 3PAR storage systems. HP also introduced the HP P4800 G2 SAN, which is built inside an HP BladeSystem c7000 enclosure and eliminates the need for external storage networking. HP said this can reduce networking costs by up to 65%. The P4800 G2 SAN starts at $148,000

The company also announced availability of the HP D2D4324 Backup System, which features StoreOnce data deduplication technology. The system starts at $149,999.
