TORONTO, April 21st, 2016 — ThinkOn, Canada’s first integrated virtual data center and storage service provider, announces their newest service offering: ThinkOn Data Storage. The service is powered by Hewlett Packard Enterprise storage solutions including HPe 3PAR StoreServ 8000 and HPe StoreOnce and will be available to all authorized partners, including HPe platinum and gold partners in Canada.
ThinkOn, as an HPe Partner Ready service provider, has increased its offerings by leveraging HPe’s leading solutions that meet customer requirements for security, reliability, and flexibility.

“We are elated to be joining the HPe partner ecosystem to help the channel deliver more value to Canadian enterprises,” says ThinkOn CEO, Craig McLellan.
About ThinkOn Data Storage: ThinkOn will initially offer two performance tiers on HPe 3PAR StoreServ 8000 storage – a high-performance tier for databases and I/O intensive workloads and a second tier for archival or at-rest data. To round out the offerings, ThinkOn will also offer an HPe StoreOnce VSA replication service with access to Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) options.
The Key Benefits
- High availability storage available in capacity volumes that you need today not what you need in the distant future

ThinkOn Data Storage delivers high availability storage and direct access to dedicated or cloud computing with support for any existing software platforms customers may require. ThinkOn’s hybrid cloud service offers subscribers access to secure infrastructure that is designed to support production-grade workloads.
For customers with the need for cost-effective off-site data vaulting services ThinkOn also offers an HPe StoreOnce hosted service. The HPe StoreOnce service can act as an enabler for disaster recovery to the cloud or an alternative to off-site tape storage.
