AUSTIN, Texas, Jan. 22, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Crossroads Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: CRDS) today announced general availability of its second generation hardware platform of the StrongBox NAS T10 and T30 appliances.

Additionally, they allow us to expand StrongBox's addressable market size and attract new customers who need expanded online and nearline disk storage."
