|Includes: Crossroads Systems, Inc. (CRDS)

Crossroads Systems, a provider of data protection and storage solutions worldwide, announced that its StrongBox® LTFS NAS archive solution has received the 2012 HPA Engineering Excellence Award.

The prestigious award is a marquee portion of the HPA Awards, which have gradually become the standard against which creative and technical excellence in the art, science, and quality of post production is measured. The winners are chosen from a sizeable field of various technology offerings, including some of the most prominent companies in the industry. StrongBox is an enterprise-level offering that allows tape storage to perform exactly like disk-based storage by leveraging Linear Tape File System (LTFS) technology.

Regardless of the type of media, from sporting events to news programming, flexible media file storage is vital to fully utilize the media files containing the content for day-to-day business. The need for low-cost, easily accessible and highly reliable long-term media file preservation in the media and entertainment industry is addressed by StrongBox's revolutionary technology. With StrongBox, no special agents or applications are necessary to access archive data. End users simply drag and drop files from their Windows Explorer, Mac Finder, or other file-based application.

"Crossroads is extremely honored that its StrongBox archive solution was named a winner of the highly sought-after HPA Engineering Excellence Award," said Paul Leury, Chief Technologist at Crossroads Systems. "To have received such recognition in less than 10 months since its launch, StrongBox stands as a highly unique archive solution that can transform the mindset for maintaining and managing content archives. Additionally, the drastic cost savings associated with replacing disk-based storage with inexpensive tape has the potential to save organizations millions of dollars. We're humbled that some of the top minds in the M&E industry recognized this innovation through the HPA Awards program."

The 2012 HPA Engineering Excellence Award will be bestowed upon its recipients at a gala event scheduled for November 1 at the Skirball Cultural Center in Los Angeles, California.
