Bruno has worked with me on many projects throughout the years as both an employee (initially) and a consultant. He originally joined my team that developed X/OS, the Unix System running on Olivetti hardware in the second half of the eighties. There are not enough good things I can say about Bruno: he is dependable, thorough, responsible and he shows incredible integrity commitment and dedication in his work. His experience in complex system developments is remarkable. He is able to diagnose and resolve the most intricate problems even in extremely complex systems. His thorough background and understanding of Unix, the Windows kernel and environment and networking is remarkable. The quality of the documentation and specifications Bruno is capable of producing is very unusual for clarity and thoroughness. He has outstanding architectural and design skills and can draw from his enormous baggage of knowledge and skills and, on top of that, he is extremely hands-on, which gives him the grounding one needs in designing complex systems. On top of all this, he is always very unbiased in his assessments. He is extremely personable and technical disagreements are always handled in the most professional way and exclusively on the basis of technical merit. He is also a real gentleman. Professionals like him are hard to find.

Bruno Sartirana designed and developed a file repacking utility and a driver for a high-end PCI Express compression board for our 64-bit ONTAP. He also wrote a test program capable of stressing the driver in a large number of regular and corner cases. Eventually, Bruno integrated the driver with our file system. He came up to speed quickly, and produced well-commented, well-documented, high-quality software working independently. Bruno took care of all aspects of the project, including dealing with the compression board vendor for problems and updates.

We are very satisfied with Bruno's performance and would consider having him help us on other projects.

I have worked with Bruno in an engineering capacity for over 2 years now, and have come to know him as a true professional who can be relied upon not only to get the job done but also to do it with a great attitude.

The nature of the work has been both complex and not well defined since it has included areas of technology that have not been documented by our third-party vendors. Despite this, Bruno’s expertise and tenacity could always be relied on to overcome whatever issues came up.

It is without hesitation that I commend Bruno as a great engineer for whatever endeavor we may choose to undertake.

...thank you for helping us resolve our recent NT iSCSI driver problem. You were very busy with other clients, yet you put in the extra effort by working late during the week and on weekends to diagnose our problem and work on a solution. Your extra effort was truly appreciated and you will be the first person we call for any future NT or Windows work. Thank you again.

Apogeo designed and implemented the NT version of one of our best-selling UNIX products. The task was extremely challenging... Apogeo impressed us with their deep knowledge of the NT kernel and Win32 environment. They re-wrote the software from scratch, and delivered a very high quality product in a short time. We shipped the product to our Beta customers, and, after two months of use, no error has been reported. Apogeo has been very responsive to all our requests. All their deliverables exceeded our quality expectations. Apogeo has earned our highest recommendation for their knowledge of Windows NT and the quality of their work. They have become our reference consulting company for the Windows NT platform.

I would like to thank both you and Marco Paganini for your contributions to the LANdisk program over the past year. Marco has truly been one of the key members of our engineering team. His professionalism and expertise in the design and implementation of the user interface were very valuable elements of the product we were developing. He worked very well with all our engineers, marketers, and tech writers on our team, and has become a very good friend to many of us at Quantum. I sincerely hope to have the opportunity to work together again in the future.

ref-ricoh.gif (3383 bytes) "...In my opinion, Bruno is a sound-thinking and hard-working person. His intelligence can catch the nerve-touching spirit of a leading design project very quickly, and he usually can provide useful and creative suggestions in a relatively short time. Bruno is also a very responsible and well-trained engineer in the Silicon Valley: all the documentation, drawings and specifications that he delivered to Ricoh have been of first-class quality. In the past ten months of Bruno's involvement in the V20 Project, all the V20 team members have had a good and happy experience working with him, and have built sincere trust for him. If there are more opportunities down the road, I would like to work with Bruno again. I sincerely believe Bruno deserves the greatest success with his consulting business. I am happy to give him my highest recommendation ever for an engineer."
