Crossroads Systems Inc., inked a deal earlier this week to cross-license its intellectual property with IBM which the companies say will allow them to “build upon and expand their work together,” according to a press release.

The two companies also announced that IBM customers will be able to offer Crossroads’ ReadVerify Appliance (RVA) to monitor the health of tape storage systems.

IBM and Crossroads claim that combining their technologies will improve efficiency for IBM customers and enhance performance for tape environments.

“RVA, a standalone appliance, saves organizations time and money by proactively monitoring the efficiency and integrity of tape library environments. RVA will be offered with IBM System Storage TS3310 and TS3500 tape libraries and as a stand-alone solution,” according to the release.

IBM is scheduled to begin shipping RVA in August 2011.
