NGKS Provides Superior Service with E-Disk Technology from BiTMICRO

4/9/2004 - BiTMICRO® Networks, a pioneer in intelligent ATA / IDE, SCSI, USB, VME, Compact PCI, Firewire and Fibre Channel flash disks announced that NGKS International, a fast growing pipeline service company, has embraced its E-Disk® technology to provide superior service to its customers.

NGKS International develops in line inspection tools and a methodology of data analysis collected for automated data interpretation, offering its customers pre-repair defect classification and recommendations for specific repairs. They also provide data correlation from several inspection runs and assessment of defect growth rates, verification of repair methods and repair intervals.

In providing these services to their customers, NGKS International requires a reliable and high performance storage for their tools that should be able to withstand heavy condensation, air and gas temperature differentials, not to mention provide value for their investment.

"We take our business seriously. It is not as simple as inspecting, cleaning out the pipes and providing reports. We need to deliver results that provide substantial cost-savings and maximum pipeline uptime to our customers while taking into serious consideration our obligations towards environment protection and public safety of our customers, employees and the communities they serve. We cannot afford to be inaccurate or inefficient," says Leon Tolokunsky, Director General of NGKS International.

"We needed a state-of-the-art technology to work with our system, one that can provide us with reliability, performance and durability. Ordinary hard drives cannot meet up with our demands. We looked everywhere, storage vendors provide one or the other and BiTMICRO was the only one to comply with our standards," adds Tolokunsky.

"NGKS International chose our E-Disk® solid-state drives because of its reliability, performance and its reputation for being the best-selling solid-state flash disk drive in the market," states Jake Pasion, Director of Sales of BiTMICRO Networks.

"We continue to tailor our technology and product offerings to meet the specific needs of customers. BiTMICRO's leadership in flash disk technology and our excellent working relationships with our customers continue to help us deliver the right technology for the right application," adds Pasion.

BiTMICRO has captured the military, aerospace, industrial and enterprise market worldwide by delivering durable and reliable storage solution critical to information management requirements. BiTMICRO's E-Disk products deliver a solid solution for data storage and protection while providing the powerful performance and speed today's data-intensive applications demand. They feature patented FlashBusTM storage technology to speed performance, eliminate system bottlenecks, and offer durable storage for easy installation and start-up.
