MILPITAS, Calif., (March 19, 2002) - DISC Inc. (NASDAQ: DCSR), a manufacturer of automated solutions for enterprise storage, announced today a partnership with Government Micro Resources, to sell its NearLine Storage Solutions to federal agencies on NASA's Scientific and Engineering Workstation Platform (SEWP) III contract.

"We are pleased that we will be working with DISC, Inc. and representing their product line to the government market," said Bob Keigley, GMR's Vice President of Vendor Relations. "DISC has designed its solutions to provide the reliability, performance and capacity needed for mission critical storage applications."

GMR was awarded contracts by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) in two classes of the Scientific Engineering Workstation Procurement III (SEWP III) program.
