CLEVELAND, June 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Park Place Technologies, a leading provider of hardware maintenance and operating system support services for storage arrays, servers and network equipment, is now offering support for the EMC VNX line of storage systems.

The first entry in the EMC VNX storage line, which combines the CLARiiON SAN and Cellera NAS solutions, was released in the first quarter of 2011. The initial warranty on the VNX systems will expire approximately three years later, in the beginning of 2014. Companies using EMC VNX solutions may need to consider purchasing new hardware, investing in a second warranty from EMC or partnering with a dedicated maintenance and support provider. Park Place Technologies is now offering support plans for the VNX devices.

Systems impacted by the completion of the initial warranty and the start of Park Place Technologies support services include:

- VNXe3100
- VNXe3150
- VNXe3300
- VNX5100
- VNX5300
- VNX5500
- VNX5700
- VNX7500
- VG2
- VG8

IT managers considering a third-party maintenance plan can rest assured that Park Place Technologies is well positioned to support the VNX line of systems. The VNX storage solutions use the VNX-OE operating system, which functions at the same revision level as the FLARE and DART operating systems used in the CLARiiON SAN and Cellera NAS solutions. As a result, Park Place Technologies can offer full support for operating systems and device maintenance.

Park Place Technologies also offers support for standalone CLARiiON SAN solutions and Cellera NAS systems, most of which have reached their end-of-service-life date, but can still play a useful role in enterprise storage strategies.

Working with Park Place Technologies gives companies access to some of the most innovative and cost-effective maintenance services available. Park Place Technologies prides itself on its domestic call center architecture that gives customers rapid response to their service calls. The company also provides support for a wide range of EMC storage solutions, making it an experienced vendor in the EMC support segment.
