Austin, Texas, March 22, 2000 – In a move that boosts its capabilities in enterprise storage area networks (SANs), Crossroads Systems, Inc., a leading developer and manufacturer of storage routers for use in fibre channel SANs, announced it has completed the acquisition of Polaris Communications.

On Feb. 3, 2000, Crossroads announced the execution of a definitive agreement to acquire Polaris Communications, a privately held designer, developer and marketer of S/390 mainframe communication interfaces and systems. This acquisition adds another set of protocols to Crossroads' storage routing capabilities and will further Crossroads' commitment to interoperability between the many S/390 components and open-systems SANs. This acquisition will enable Crossroads to bring its open system SAN expertise to larger enterprise systems where more than 70 percent of the world's data is stored.
