Crossroads Systems Forms Strategic Alliance With Fujitsu To Deliver StrongBox Data Vaults

Fujitsu Frontech North America Inc. (FFNA), a leader in innovative technology and front-end solutions, and Crossroads Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: CRDS), a global provider of data protection solutions and services, formed a strategic alliance for FFNA to sell a branded Fujitsu-Crossroads StrongBox® tier-3 data vault.

Fujitsu and its extensive worldwide channel now offer “StrongBox powered by Fujitsu” within their NuVola Private Cloud PlatformTM solution. StrongBox is a tier-3 data storage solution that provides online, all-the-time random file access that reduces costs by up to 90 percent. It stands as the industry’s most cost-effective answer to ever-growing data storage requirements. The NuVola Private Cloud Platform is Fujitsu’s appliance-based solution built with class-leading Fujitsu storage and server products, and paired with advanced software tools and utilities that transform business critical processes by leveraging private cloud computing power, security and scalability.

StrongBox powered by Fujitsu will also provide organizations the first enterprise-level private cloud solution that leverages Linear Tape File System (LTFS) technology, combining the unparalleled scalability of tape with the speed and accessibility of disk.

“The StrongBox powered by Fujitsu appliance breaks new ground in the category of tier-3 data storage by providing class-leading performance, administration and management that utilizes LTFS,” said Vic Herring, vice president of sales and marketing at FFNA. “StrongBox offers immediate ROI for organizations whose tier-3 storage strategy must meet high-performance requirements, be agile enough to seamlessly scale, all while being deployed on our NuVola Private Cloud Platform.”

“Crossroads is extremely pleased to announce its strategic alliance with Fujitsu, one of the world’s top IT companies,” said Rob Sims, president and CEO of Crossroads Systems. “With an organization the size of Fujitsu offering and utilizing StrongBox, it underscores the solution’s unique capabilities and the impact it can have within the industry. By integrating StrongBox within Fujitsu’s portfolio, we significantly expand the possibilities of how tier-3 data is managed using the LTFS standard, all while reducing cost and increasing the reliability of data vaults.”
