Unique Storage Solutions Aim to Provide Government Agencies With Efficient, Reliable and Cost-Effective Archiving

AUSTIN, TX -- (Marketwire) -- 12/12/12 -- Crossroads Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: CRDS), a global provider of data archive solutions, today announced that ViON Corporation, a Northern Virginia-based provider of storage and server solutions, will now offer its governmental customers several new ViON storage solutions powered by StrongBox® from Crossroads Systems.

StrongBox is a shared storage archive, delivering complete data protection and reliability. It's the first enterprise-level storage solution to leverage Linear Tape File System (LTFS) technology, allowing tape storage to walk and talk like expensive disk-based storage.

"Just as some of the largest corporations are faced with mounting archive needs for files, most government agencies have the same need -- and partnering with a leading company such as ViON creates a path to offering StrongBox-powered archive solutions to various agencies," said David Cerf, executive vice president of business and corporate development at Crossroads. "ViON has a lengthy and successful record of providing cost-efficient data solutions to a wide variety of federal, state and local authorities, and Crossroads is pleased to partner with them to offer such secure, cost-cutting shared storage options through ViON."

"ViON is a successful mid-size corporation that provides a significant number of local, state, and federal government entities with efficient, cost-effective storage solutions," said Michael Jones, vice president of corporate development at ViON. "StrongBox has the potential to expand our business greatly by millions of dollars each year, as it allows us to bring this new LTFS-based shared storage technology to federal ViON customers in the DOD, Intelligence, and civilian agencies, as well as to our many state and local-level customers. There is little doubt that StrongBox will serve as a significant driver for new ViON opportunities, as we can offer both new and existing customers this unique, reliable, and cost-effective archiving technology."

The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it? Certainly the fog layer of IoT requires special insights about data ontology, security and transactional integrity. But the developmental challenges are the same: People, Process and Platform and how we integrate our thinking to solve complicated problems. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Craig Sproule, CEO of Metavine, will demonstrate how to move beyond today's coding paradigm ...
The cloud market growth today is largely in public clouds. While there is a lot of spend in IT departments in virtualization, these aren’t yet translating into a true “cloud” experience within the enterprise. What is stopping the growth of the “private cloud” market? In his general session at 18th Cloud Expo, Nara Rajagopalan, CEO of Accelerite, explored the challenges in deploying, managing, and getting adoption for a private cloud within an enterprise. What are the key differences between wh...

"We work in the area of Big Data analytics and Big Data analytics is a very crowded space - you have Hadoop, ETL, warehousing, visualization and there's a lot of effort trying to get these tools to talk to each other," explained Mukund Deshpande, head of the Analytics practice at Accelerite, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 18th Cloud Expo, held June 7-9, 2016, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
The idea of comparing data in motion (at the sensor level) to data at rest (in a Big Data server warehouse) with predictive analytics in the cloud is very appealing to the industrial IoT sector. The problem Big Data vendors have, however, is access to that data in motion at the sensor location. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Scott Allen, CMO of FreeWave, discussed how as IoT is increasingly adopted by industrial markets, there is going to be an increased demand for sensor data from the outermos...

In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.
When people aren’t talking about VMs and containers, they’re talking about serverless architecture. Serverless is about no maintenance. It means you are not worried about low-level infrastructural and operational details. An event-driven serverless platform is a great use case for IoT. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Animesh Singh, an STSM and Lead for IBM Cloud Platform and Infrastructure, will detail how to build a distributed serverless, polyglot, microservices framework using open source tec...
