There isn't a great deal of information available on Ardent Technical
Services -- which certainly isn't unusual for a small-ish company --
but what there is looks generally positive.
The Better Business Bureau maintains a file on Ardent, and views them
in a fairly favorable light, even though Ardent isn't a BBB member.
Here are some excerpts from the BBB report, which can be seen in its entirety at:

There is no mention of the company -- either positive or negative --
in a search of Tennessee newspaper records.
Nor were there any lawsuits that I could find in the online
Lexis-Nexis database regarding Ardent Technologies.
As for the article in the link you referenced...I must admit, I found
it a bit confusing. It sounded like Ardent was left holding the bag
when Nexar went belly-up, but the article didn't seem particularly
critical of Ardent.
