AUSTIN, Texas, Aug. 5, 2014 /PRNewswire/ –Crossroads Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: CRDS) today announced that the Roy H. Park School of Communications at New York’s Ithaca College deployed the Crossroads StrongBox® NAS for long-term preservation of its digital content.
With academic programs ranging from television-radio and journalism to integrated marketing communications and documentary studies, the Park School boasts numerous alumni who have played substantial roles in the media and entertainment industry.
