Solid State Solutions (S3) Reviews

Write a Review

We’ve worked with S3 before and were very happy with the service. The team was great in working with two different nationalities, including navigating the customs regimes, VAT rules and all the logistical issues that need to be factored.

Paul Fretter, Head of CiS at NBI Partnership Ltd

S3 was able to work with PML to come up with an alternative option that offered a long-term solution. From a technical perspective, the originally proposed load balancer had limitations we wanted to remove. With the new solution from loadbalancer.org we have unlimited capacity that can expand and contract and has flexible licensing options to reflect that model.

Gary Holder, Head of Information Technology at PML

I have always liked the S3 approach. They are not pushy Sales types. They provide clear information for you to get your teeth into at your own pace. The team were there when we needed them but also left us alone at times when we were busy. It was the perfect balance.

Neil Bingham, Head of ICT Cloud at Frontier Smart Technologies

A big part of the NetBackup tender was to have a single point of contact for our NetBackup support, someone who would be familiar with our setup and would provide the front end for Symantec support. S3’s helpdesk being part of the package was a favourable element when evaluating the tender responses.
The technical team who installed the solution inspired confidence and were efficient, working quickly to implement the solution and resolve any issues that came up, ensuring the project did not slip. There was also the added bonus of them being NetApp accredited, and were able to integrate the new infrastructure into our NetApp estate seamlessly. The same team continue to support us through the operational stage, the continuity of this has proved invaluable.
The Vale has an ever increasing amount of data to protect, and I feel that S3 have provided us with a solution that meets our current needs and those of the future.

Emma Williams, Principal ICT Officer at Vale of Glamorgan Council

Data is the most important thing we hold, and we confidently place it in the safe hands of Hitachi Data Systems. S3 provided the consultancy needed to see the project through from inception to implementation and as a team we’ve realised the benefits that effective storage management can deliver.

Nial Grimes, IT consultant at Carmarthenshire County Council

S3’s solution has proved to match our needs for scalability perfectly; it has resulted in a significant reduction in our administrative costs with the abandonment of overnighting and overcome our biggest challenges – those of low bandwidth, limited data transfer and increasing storage capacity. We have an ambitious expansion strategy and I am confident that S3 have found the right tools that will now allow me and my team to better focus our efforts on client and in-house support. We are replicating pretty much in real time now and the system they integrated makes me confident we can continue to secure our data and operate even in the most adverse circumstances.

Colin Everett, Head of IT Strategy and Architecture at Lloyds TSB Corporate Markets

We have worked very closely with S3 for a number of years, and in fact did consider a number of the major storage vendors. We were particularly impressed with Hitachi Data Systems because it provides the most interoperable storage system on the market; it also offers excellent consultancy and a strong onsite support team.

Mark Curtis, Divisional Technical Manager at Infoterra
