Crossroads Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: CRDS) said it has announced general availability of StrongBox 2.3, the latest release of its network-attached storage appliance that continues to answer data archiving needs and now also addresses primary storage requirements that demand greater performance and accessibility.
With the release of StrongBox 2.3, users can employ the StrongBox NAS for two use cases: as primary storage via the new expanded disk functions and as an active archive for long-term data retention. The flexibility comes from new user-defined disk policies that bolster the performance of the system and allow online, nearline and archival storage. Organizations can now use StrongBox to simplify their storage of unstructured data, ensure data protection without third party backup applications, and dramatically reduce storage costs.
The StrongBox NAS is also now compatible with Oracle.
