3PAR Thin Technologies
3PAR Thin Provisioning software improves storage system efficiency and optimizes capacity utilization system-wide. It does this by addressing the problem of capacity overall location through eliminating the need to dedicate storage capacity on a per-application basis.
Since its introduction, 3PAR Thin Provisioning software has given 3PAR Utility Storage customers the ability to meet Green IT targets and reduce capacity purchases. Thin Provisioning makes this possible by cutting SAN costs, floor space requirements, and energy expenses by up to 75% and decreasing administration time by 90%. It does this by allowing you to purchase only the disk capacity you actually need, only as you actually need it. No more up-front capacity allocation. No more dedicating resources for each application. No more paying to power, house, and cool disks you may not need for months or years to come, or may never actually need.
