Advantec FZCO. “Its financial impact can not only affect the
productivity of a company and cost of re-creating data, it may even
involve legal actions which is why data protection has always been very
important for us. We stand for our commitment to provide our customers
with the best storage solutions, and our partnership with NovaStor helps
us deliver just that.”
