The hardware giant says it will be delivering Day 1 support and certification for vSphere 6 and vSphere Virtual Volumes across midrange, high-end, and all-flash HP 3PAR StoreServ Storage arrays.
The company will also provide support for vSphere 6 across the HP StoreVirtual, MSA and XP Storage platforms.
HP said the partnership would help customers tap into the benefits of the new vSphere 6 updates using their HP 3PAR StoreServ Storage infrastructure.
The support will also help customers reduce storage capacity requirements for vSphere Virtual Volumes by 75% or more using the HP 3PAR Thin Provisioning, Thin Clone, and Thin Deduplication capabilities, according to HP.
Other benefits include reduced costs through simpler administration, made possible by the HP server, storage, networking, and data protection systems via a single, updated HP OneView for VMware vCenter plug-in.
