HP has completed its $2.35bn (£1.48bn) acquisition of storage company 3PAR, which had followed a fierce bidding war with Dell.
3PAR will expand HP's storage portfolio into enterprise-class public and private cloud computing environments, which are key growth markets for HP, the firm explained in a statement.
"3PAR brings market-differentiating technology to HP that will enable clients to maximise storage utilisation, balance workloads and automate storage tiering, " HP said.
"This allows clients to improve productivity and more efficiently operate storage networks. [The acquisition will] strengthen HP's ability to simplify datacentre environments for clients."
Further details on product integration will be announced at a later date, HP added.
HP snatched 3PAR from Dell's grasp after a prolonged battle. Dell looked to have secured the acquisition, originally offering $1.15bn (£746m). But HP stepped in with a bid of $1.6bn (£1.03bn) and kept firing in bids to counter its rival.
HP finally won with a $2.4bn ($1.51bn) offer, more than $1bn (£630m) greater than Dell's original bid, showing the great value placed on 3PAR's products.
