From what I've heard, DSSD is yet another company from Andy
Bechtolsheim that could have a huge impact on the industry. As far as I
know, they are still operating in stealth mode, so there's not much
information about the company online. I think the Wrangler system was to
be their first high-profile project (that I know of), and a lot of those
details are still under NDA.
Looks like they're off to a good start if EMC already bought them.
