FREMONT, CA, Apr 14 (MARKET WIRE) —
3PAR(R) (NYSE: PAR), the leading global provider of utility storage,
announced today that it has launched its first sales office in China and
named David Lu as country manager, based in Beijing. Part of an ongoing
expansion in the Asia-Pacific region, this move positions 3PAR to provide
utility storage systems to enable Chinese customers to build highly
virtualized, highly consolidated datacenters for enterprise and cloud
computing that are also environmentally responsible.
“Chinese enterprises face strict limits on the amount of space they can
devote to datacenters,” said Lu. “3PAR’s ability to consolidate and
reduce storage footprint while also dramatically reducing energy costs
and increasing business agility is a major plus in the Chinese market.
All of these benefits are important as 3PAR expands its channel presence
in China to reach key markets in hosting/cloud computing, Internet 2.0,
and banking sectors. Wherever large-scale server virtualization is
happening, 3PAR is a great fit.”
Since 1996, Lu has held a variety of sales, business development, and
channel management positions for major IT suppliers operating in China
including EMC, IBM, Sun Microsystems, and Computer Associates. In these
roles he has worked closely with partners such as independent software
vendors, distributors, and systems integrators to increase sales and
establish new distribution channels.
Since 2007, 3PAR has won several product awards in China, including the
China Storage Forum Innovation Award for Green Storage, the Servers &
Storage Annual Award for Green Storage Solutions, the CBS Interactive
China Anniversary Excellent Products Award, and the Product of the Year
Award in the category of Storage/Disk Storage from China Computerworld
“David’s past experiences and success are a great fit for 3PAR as we help
customers in China realize the benefits of 3PAR Utility Storage,” said
3PAR President and CEO David Scott. “China is a market that could provide
significant opportunity for 3PAR since fast-growing organizations stand
to benefit enormously from the transformative levels of simplicity,
agility, and efficiency that 3PAR delivers to virtualized environments.
We look forward to helping our customers in China address the unique
demands of their virtual and cloud deployments while reducing the
capital, operating, and environmental costs of storing and managing their
The opening of the China office is the latest move by 3PAR to increase
its presence throughout the Asia-Pacific region, driven by the
requirements of not only global customers operating in the region, but an
extremely high level of interest from progressive local customers.
“These customers demand more from their storage providers and view 3PAR’s
green technologies, ease of use, and leadership in cloud computing
storage technologies as essential factors in the decision-making
process,” said Vaughan Woods, Managing Director, 3PAR Asia. 3PAR’s APAC
headquarters, headed by Woods, is located in Singapore.
