Crossroads Systems Releases ReadVerify Appliance 5.0

New Advanced Reporting Features Greatly Enhance Visibility Into Tape Systems

AUSTIN, TX--(Marketwire - Feb 7, 2012) - Crossroads Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: CRDS) announced the release of ReadVerify® Appliance (RVA) 5.0, the latest edition of its appliance that saves organizations time and money by proactively validating the integrity of tape library systems.

RVA 5.0's most significant enhancement includes a set of advanced reporting features that provide greater flexibility for viewing the behavior and operation of tape library resources. The new tools are a further step toward "active diagnostics" within a tape environment, as they provide considerably more advanced analytical analysis of potential problem areas.

Organizations can identify complex system interactions to determine impacts on key areas such as network bottlenecks, resource allocations, and errant system behavior. With the ability to correlate multiple metrics simultaneously, administrators can identify hidden relationships and complex interdependencies to rapidly pinpoint an issue's root cause or spot system inefficiencies. RVA's rapid diagnostics can save time and money by minimizing library down-time and deferring capital expenditures.

In addition to multi-metric analysis, RVA 5.0's advanced reporting provides a multi-level drill down into the resources contributing to the selected metrics. With this new capability comes increased system reliability -- translating into real savings through optimizing the use of existing resources.

"Understanding complex interactions further removes the 'trial and error' approach to solving system wide issues, saving time and money," said Elaine Pleshek, senior product manager at Crossroads Systems. "RVA 5.0 and its new reporting capabilities combine to create the industry's most comprehensive and proactive tape validation system. With the release of RVA 5.0, Crossroads illustrates its commitment to listening to its customers and continually enhancing its solutions to meet the latest tape-related needs."
