Innovative offshore IT services provider Itex has become the first company in the Channel Islands to integrate the newly launched 3Par technology across its storage solutions to help boost efficient and cost effective cloud computing services.

Storage technology is vital to support the growing demand for cloud-based services where data is largely housed remotely rather on actual end-user terminals. Analysts report the amount of data being amassed is doubling every 18 months and that increasingly companies need to review ways of accessing it cost-effectively from an increasing variety of devices.

3Par is now globally recognised as the most agile and efficient portfolio of storage technology. The technology enables users to maximise productivity with less administrative overhead. 3Par reduces clients' acquisition costs, cuts total cost of ownership in terms of heat and power and slashes the traditional administration costs associated with managing enterprise storage installations. Itex will now offer this to its burgeoning number of customers contracting cloud and storage services.

Itex Managing Consultant, Jake Foster, the only IT specialist in the Channel Islands to be awarded Storage Networking Industry Association SCSN-E Expert credential, says, “Clients are no longer just concerned with how much storage they have, but also how that storage performs in their environment. 3par's flexibility, along with its other enterprise class features, enables customers not only to purchase and scale storage easily, in real-time, but also to increase storage performance in line with their requirements.”

3Par was designed as a virtualised storage solution to deliver 100% of the agility and efficiency demanded in today’s virtual and cloud data centres. The platform delivers the performance, stability and availability required of enterprise storage, along with a range of unique benefits not afforded by traditional storage devices. 3Par is owned by leading global vendor, Hewlett Packard.

Itex has invested over £5M to help facilitate business innovation. The company continues to work with leading global technology partners such as Hewlett Packard, who supplied the world-class Matrix technology, Microsoft and Cisco to offer innovative, superior IT services.
