Dell is out of the ongoing bidding war for 3PAR making the way free for HP.

Dell announced today that it will not increase its most recent proposal to acquire 3PAR, and that Dell has ended its discussions regarding a potential acquisition. Dell is entitled to receive a $72 million break-up fee from 3PAR upon the termination of its merger agreement.

Dell’s final offer to acquire 3PAR was not accepted by 3PAR’s board of directors. Dell’s improved offer included a proposed commercial relationship and an increased break-up fee.

“We took a measured approach throughout the process and have decided to end these discussions,” said Dave Johnson, senior vice president, corporate strategy.

HP and Dell where fighting over the storage company 3PAR for the last two weeks.
