Crossroads to Offer Increased Automation in SPHiNX 8.3

Latest Crossroads SPHiNX Virtual Tape Appliance to Allow Organizations to Do More With Less Through Greater Automation Options (May 07, 2012)

AUSTIN, TX -- (Marketwire) -- 05/07/12 -- Crossroads Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: CRDS), a global provider of data protection solutions and services, today announced the upcoming release of SPHiNX 8.3, the latest software update for the holistic data protection and storage appliance that provides highly reliable disaster recovery capabilities from the desktop to the data center. General availability is scheduled for June 29.

Crossroads will showcase the release of SPHiNX 8.3 this week in booth #321 at the 2012 COMMON Annual Meeting and Exposition in Anaheim, California. Offering complete disaster recovery capabilities for mid-range server and open system host environments, SPHiNX 8.3 will offer significant automation options designed to save organizations both time and money.

With downsizing trends continuing, many organizations are forced to adopt a "more with less" philosophy. As a result, it's no surprise that one of the top goals is to improve operational efficiency by automating processes. SPHiNX 8.3 will allow more use of automation in performing typical daily tasks such as replication, export of data to physical tape, and storage reclamation after data is successfully offsite.

"In SPHiNX 8.3, Crossroads is enhancing the product to provide more automation with user-defined event policies and the ability to trigger other events to automatically occur without the need for additional user intervention," said Glenn Haley, senior product manager at Crossroads Systems. "We're also updating several of the SPHiNX Web management pages to improve the overall usability of the product. This is yet another example of Crossroads listening to its customers and improving its product to meet the latest needs."
