Dell buys 3PAR for just over $1 billion

3PAR makes some fine storage products.  The interesting thing is that Dell already bought EqualLogic and resells EMC low-end kit.  You’d think someone at Dell was looking to corner the market on SMB storage solutions.

Dell To Buy Data Storage And Management Company 3PAR For $1.13 Billion

Dell has agreed to acquire 3PAR, a competitor to the likes of IBM, HP, EMC and Hitachi in the data storage and management space.

The transaction is valued at $18 per share in cash – marking a 86.5% premium to company’s Friday closing price of $9.65 – or approximately $1.13 billion.
