Singapore Computer Society visits MicronDR facilities

Singapore, August 30, 2007 — MicronDR (S) Pte Ltd (, the data

recovery specialist, opened its Class 10 certified clean room and fully equipped

laboratory for the first time to visitors from Singapore Computer Society (SCS) on

August 17.

The half-day site visit – jointly organised by SCS and micronDR – attracted 18

participants, most of whom were IT managers from various organisations, government

agencies and tertiary institutions.

The visitors were treated to a guided tour of the recovery laboratory and gained an

understanding of the various processes of data storage and storage media. They also

had an inside look at the Disaster Rapid Deployment Mobile Unit and got a feel of

being inside the unit and accessing the various facilities within.

“It’s an eye-opener for many of us,” said Goh Kim Yam of GeoMatrix Consultancy.

According to Patrick Koh, Chief Executive Officer of micronDR, this visit was crafted

upon by both SCS and micronDR to allow SCS members to have an inner understanding

of the data recovery technology and the importance of having a Class 10 clean room.

“A number of IT professionals are not aware of the wide range of data recovery

technology and equipment, and the need for a clean room for such purpose,” he said.

“SCS is pleased to collaborate with MicronDR on the series of exclusive site visits for

members to learn more about data and disaster recovery. We are encouraged by the

positive responses from the members who had participated in the site visit, and we

hope this would encourage active participation from individuals and organisations,”

said Jennifer Ong, the Society’s Executive Director.

SCS plans to organise another such trip for its Student Chapter members on September
