AUSTIN, TX -- (Marketwired) -- 04/02/14 -- Crossroads Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: CRDS), a global provider of data protection solutions, today announced a new partnership with New Jersey-based VideoBank, a leading provider of tools for processing, exploiting, and disseminating full-motion video and imagery to generate real-time situational awareness.
Under the partnership, VideoBank's customers will now be offered the Crossroads StrongBox® data protection appliance, a seamless solution that secures and protects content for long-term preservation. The digital asset management (DAM) solutions offered by VideoBank are used by educational institutions, medical facilities, government organizations, entertainment companies, and the U.S. military to manage and distribute video and other content.
VideoBank's customers can deploy StrongBox to solve the ever-growing budget challenges surrounding the storage of mission-critical content. Working seamlessly with VideoBank tools, the complete StrongBox archiving solution (StrongBox plus an LTO 6 library) for 200 TB of content starts at $44,550 -- allowing organizations to archive and protect information without the considerably higher costs associated with disk-based storage.
"Partnering with VideoBank helps further extend StrongBox's reach across several verticals," said David Cerf, executive vice president of strategy and business development at Crossroads Systems. "We're pleased to offer VideoBank's prestigious customers our cost-efficient StrongBox solution for archiving and protecting critical content. From the military, to sports franchises, and post production, organizations face continually increasing storage costs for fast-growing data volumes. StrongBox efficiently addresses this challenge and serves as a significant cost-saving tool alongside VideoBank solutions."
Since 1997, VideoBank has been revolutionizing the ways in which educational institutions, medical facilities, government organizations, entertainment companies and the U.S. military have archived, managed, and distributed their products and services worldwide. More importantly, our systems have transformed the way the men and women of our armed forces gather and utilize intelligence both at home and abroad. At VideoBank we make it our responsibility to stay on the cutting edge of technology, which helps allow business leaders, doctors, teachers, government officials and soldiers to concentrate their energies where they truly belong--on serving their local and global communities.
VideoBank employees dedicate themselves to meeting the needs of our clients. In addition to providing a state-of-the-art COTS product line, we also have extensive experience custom designing, building, and installing advanced asset management systems. While VideoBank software provides the core of the digital asset management solutions we provide, our integration and development teams will work hand-in-hand with members of your organization to design a turnkey solution according to your specifications.
