Crossroads Systems to Demo StrongBox Shared Archive Solution at 2013 HPA Tech Retreat

AUSTIN, TX--(Marketwire - Feb 19, 2013) - Crossroads Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: CRDS), a global provider of data archive solutions, is scheduled to demonstrate its StrongBox® shared storage archive solution during the HPA Tech Retreat, an event hosted by the Hollywood Post Alliance (HPA) today through February 22 at the Hyatt Regency in Indian Wells, California.

StrongBox is a recipient of the prestigious 2012 HPA Engineering Excellence Award. The award program has become the standard by which creative and technical excellence in the art, science and craft of post production is measured. 

The HPA is the trade association serving the Southern California-based professional community of businesses and individuals who provide expertise, support, tools and the infrastructure for the creation and finishing of motion pictures, television, commercials, digital media and other dynamic media content.

Its annual HPA Tech Retreat is an informal gathering of the top engineering, technical and creative talent, as well as strategic business leaders focused on technology, from all aspects of digital-cinema, post-production, film, television, video and related technologies for the exchange of information.

StrongBox delivers complete data protection and reliability for production and post-production content. It's the first enterprise-level storage solution to leverage Linear Tape File System (LTFS) technology, allowing a responsive tape storage system to walk and talk like expensive disk-based storage. As a non-proprietary solution, StrongBox seamlessly integrates into file-based workflows to provide direct end-user access to files stored in the cost-effective LTO library.

Located in the HPA Demo Room, this year's demonstration of StrongBox will include a tour of the simple Web-based policy management and configuration interface along with comprehensive views into its advanced reporting engine, which includes comprehensive media monitoring and reporting.

Crossroads' demo will highlight the end-user's view of storing and accessing files in StrongBox via simple drag-and-drop from a standard drive, as well as StrongBox's technical functions that help solve major content storage and management needs for media and entertainment professionals, such as:

  • Reducing costs for file storage
  • Empowering shared storage for multiple, simultaneous end users
  • Delivering data mobility
  • Providing complete file protection and security
