PR Newswire

AUSTIN, Texas, Aug. 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Crossroads Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: CRDS) today announced that Massasoit Community College, a multi-campus community college serving more than 11,000 students throughout Massachusetts, has deployed the Crossroads StrongBox® NAS for long-term preservation of its digital content.

Spurring the need for a scalable archive, Massasoit Community College plans to digitize physical documents from the college's founding in 1966 through today. The organization selected the Crossroads StrongBox NAS to store and protect its irreplaceable content.

As the ultimate NAS for unstructured data, StrongBox enables Massasoit Community College to cost-effectively scale as more information is added to the archive. And, since much of the academic content must be preserved for decades, StrongBox's robust data protection capabilities provide long-term integrity and reliability.

"Crossroads is pleased to help Massasoit Community College meet its need for low-cost records archiving," said David Cerf, executive vice president of strategy and business development at Crossroads Systems. "Massasoit's selection of the StrongBox NAS is the latest illustration of StrongBox's appeal for higher education organizations that must address long-term content preservation needs."
