Crossroads to Highlight StrongBox Archive Solution at Createasphere's Digital Asset Management Conference

StrongBox Customer to Discuss How to Tackle Big Data During Panel Moderated by Tom Coughlin

AUSTIN, TX--(Marketwire - Feb 26, 2013) - Crossroads Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: CRDS), a global provider of data archive solutions, will showcase its StrongBox® archive solution during Createasphere's Digital Asset Management (DAM) Conference February 27-28 at The Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, California.

Located in booth 115, Crossroads will highlight how StrongBox solves data storage challenges as a long-term, always online digital content archive. Providing a file-based archive, StrongBox delivers scalable, reliable storage by using Linear Tape File System (LTFS) tape for cost-efficiency, as well as disk for rapid and seamless data access for file-based applications. As a vendor-neutral archive and data protection solution, StrongBox integrates easily in file-based workflows, seamlessly connecting with existing DAM and MAM applications for centralized content storage.

Also during the conference, Chris Blankenship, principal at ProductionFor, is scheduled to speak at 3:15 p.m. on Thursday, February 28 during a panel discussion titled "Translating Big Data to Action." ProductionFor, a video production and post-production company, selected the StrongBox archive solution in April 2012 to create a reliable and low-cost archive of its digital files.

"Crossroads sees Createasphere's DAM Conference as an excellent venue to illustrate the unique capabilities and cost-savings that StrongBox offers," said Paul Leury, CTO at Crossroads Systems. "In addition to serving as an exhibitor, Crossroads is pleased to announce that ProductionFor, one of Crossroads' best media and entertainment customers, will take part through a panel discussion focused on big data management. We see StrongBox as a powerful tool not only for addressing many of the big data hurdles, but also for adding tremendous, unmatched value to non-linear workflows and content archiving."
