AUSTIN, TX--(Marketwire - October 26, 2009) - Crossroads Systems, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: CRDS), a global leading provider of solutions to connect, protect, secure and restore data, today announced that Rob Sims, CEO and President, and Curtis Breville, Data Storage Evangelist, will speak at InnoTech Austin 2009, the region's leading business and technology innovation conference and expo.

Sims will participate in an executive panel discussion titled "Cloud Computing: It's Not Set in Concrete Yet" at the Austin Convention Center on Thursday, October 29, 2009 at 2:30 p.m. led by storage analyst Deni Connor of Storage Strategies Now. As cloud computing is a newer technological concept that CIOs and IT decision makers are currently evaluating for storage cost reduction, participants will be asked to discuss deployment options, economies of scale, and professional abilities to improve storage management capabilities such as enhanced reliability, workload distribution, and data sets improvement management. The cast of panelists will discuss both sides, as they aim to define what is managed hosting, what is virtualization, and what really IS cloud computing.

Breville's session, "Top 10 Proven IT Solutions for Cost Reduction and Efficiency Improvements," will take place at the Austin Convention Center on Thursday, October 29, 2009 at 1 p.m. As data growth remains a constant challenge, Breville will discuss the latest IT solutions and strategies that companies and governmental agencies should implement. He will outline:

--  How organizations can use popular tools such as deduplication,
    virtualization or cloud computing without compromising their environment
--  How to best ensure the recovery of customer data given the accelerated
    rate of technological, regulatory and business changes
--  How organizations can implement lasting IT infrastructures while
    reducing costs in a safe and efficient manner
