tremendous potential for StorMagic to be the next great data storage
company, and I'm looking forward to turning that potential into reality."

platform, so that business critical edge applications remain operational.

and successful team whose
combined backgrounds include development and marketing of pioneering
technology. The company's international offices are located in the
United States, United Kingdom and Japan. With a worldwide network of
