GIG purchased the NAS (Network Attached Storage) QNAP’s data server for the project. This is the system, which consists of two hard drives that are constantly connected to the internet. The QNAP became backup "hub", as storage unit which stores all important data files and media such as photos and videos. Apart from the storage, the server is used to share and disseminate project-related important data to all partners of the Project.
