Crossroads Executive VP David Cerf to Speak at 2012 Creative Storage Conference

AUSTIN, TX--(Marketwire - Jun 19, 2012) - Crossroads Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: CRDS), a global provider of data protection solutions, announced that David Cerf, executive vice president of business and corporate development, is scheduled to participate in a panel discussion during the 2012 Creative Storage Conference (CS 2012) from 2:30 to 4 p.m. on June 26th at the DoubleTree Hotel West Los Angeles in Culver City, California.

Bringing together digital storage providers, equipment and software manufacturers, professional media and entertainment end users, CS 2012 serves as a venue to discover the latest developments in digital storage for media and entertainment. Cerf is a participant in the panel titled, "Bringing it to the Masses: Storage for Content Delivery."

Content is the driving force behind the media and entertainment industry. Be it broadcasting, production, online or mobile video, or IPTV, an organization's success often depends on the availability of their digital content. However, securely storing petabytes of video and audio files on high-performance media can quickly become too expensive. Cerf will discuss how Crossroads has harnessed the power of Linear Tape File System (LTFS) technology, resulting in the Crossroads StrongBox LTFS NAS archive that delivers an always online, fully portable data vault with significant cost-savings.

For media and entertainment professionals, the StrongBox active archive solution enables immediate access to archived content and serves as a true enterprise, vendor-neutral solution for accessible video file storage. Cerf will cover data storage and access with LTFS and tape-NAS while highlighting how an Austin, Texas-based production company is already saving money and improving workflow efficiency with StrongBox.

Crossroads will also feature its StrongBox solution during CS 2012 exhibition hours. For more information on StrongBox, visit

CS 2012 is hosted by the Entertainment Storage Alliance and Coughlin Associates. For more information on the event, visit
