3PAR doesn't want the 1% of the market that needs 1 Million + IOPs @ sub microsecond latency, Violin, Fusion I/O et all can have it, as to do that you have to rip all of the features out of the box and rely on host based software and mirroring of everything as Violin do. Also how many hosts can share that storage on the end of a PCI-E bus. Instead 3PAR they want to slot into the much larger high performance market with well established and robust feature set, that fits' within a broader family of products providing common management and federation.
Now you really are showing your ignorance, in terms of VMware support I think if you check your history you'll find HP 3PAR were first to market with a number of features and are either ahead or worst case on parity with the market leaders. Hyper-V the same with features like storage aware live migration between sites. Violin Has pretty much zero features that aren't supplied by host based software, Netapp are suffering from an identity crisis coupled with a severe lack of innovation on all fronts and Equalogic doesn't even pretend to be in the same class.
If you look where HP have taking 3PAR it's been continuous innovation over the two years they've had them in house. VClass 10,000 Series High end 2011, A-Class 7000 Series Mid range 2012, now 7450 all SSD 2013 along with many new features across the board and also now a $1Billion dollar run rate business. You really do need to do more research.
