That is why Virtium, as part of its service offering, will work closely with customers to define a test environment that will guarantee compatibility. Virtium will then use a customer’s approved test method throughout its production process on either the customer’s actual hardware or hardware that has been approved.

“What sets Virtium apart is our total commitment to personalized service, extensive testing and long product life management for our Flash storage customers. With our expanded line of TuffDisk Flash solutions, Virtium will assign a dedicated team of experts to assist OEMs in selecting or modifying firmware and hardware and offer custom testing for absolute application compatibility,” said Phan Hoang, vice president of research and development at Virtium Technology. “Virtium also ensures that our TuffDisk products will be available over an application’s life cycle, so our customer’s original B.O.M. and configuration will be locked for the duration.”
