I have had the pleasure of working with Solid State Solutions (S3) for the last 6 years during which I have owned our S3/ArrowECS relationship around NetApp and more recently EMC. During that time I have been very impressed with S3’s professionalism and knowledge of the data storage market.

It is this attitude towards of "nothing less than the best" that ultimately reaches back down to their customer engagements and solutions.
