Crossroads Systems to Demo StrongBox Shared Archive Solution at 2013 HPA Tech 
Retreat 
AUSTIN, TX -- (Marketwire) -- 02/19/13 --  Crossroads Systems, Inc.
(NASDAQ: CRDS), a global provider of data archive solutions, is
scheduled to demonstrate its StrongBox(R) 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
