Crossroads Systems to Demo SPHiNX for Power Systems at COMMON's 2010 Annual Meeting and Exposition

ORLANDO, FL--(Marketwire - April 19, 2010) -  Crossroads Systems, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: CRDS), a global provider of solutions to connect, protect, secure and restore data, today announced its participation at COMMON's 2010 Annual Meeting and Exposition from May 3-5 in Orlando, Florida.

The company will demonstrate its SPHiNX for Power Systems virtual tape solution at Booth 310. Crossroads' SPHiNX solution, a dedicated virtual tape appliance, delivers optimized data protection and resiliency for IBM Power Systems (AS/400) environments.

Since its launch at the COMMON Directions and Focus 2009 event in Indianapolis, SPHiNX has enjoyed significant growth and interest among COMMON members due to its ability to improve performance and storage capacity while leveraging existing investments in disk and tape backup infrastructures.

"Crossroads has signed several new resellers, established a strategic partnership, and seen a surge of customer interest surrounding SPHiNX for Power Systems," said Glenn Haley, senior product manager at Crossroads Systems. "SPHiNX delivers a combination of functionality, quality, and a price point that has not been available through other virtual tape appliances servicing the Power Systems space. Visit Booth 310 to 'Take a Test Drive' and see why SPHiNX is one of the industry's most feature-rich yet cost effective virtual tape appliances."

Three of Crossroads' partners, Help/Systems (Booth 600), 10ZiG (Booth 301), CIBER (Booth 321), will also be exhibiting at the COMMON event. For more information on SPHiNX for Power Systems, visit:
