Launching a New Email Archiving Appliance
A few weeks back, Sonasoft launched its new SonaVault Email Archiving Appliance powered by Rorke Hardware and Microsoft Windows Server 2012. We’re exceptionally exciting about this launch for we offer a product that is close in price to Barracuda Networks’ Message Archiver, but is far superior in quality and functionality. Just like our SonaVault Email Archiving Appliance featuring DELL servers, our new appliance is Windows-based, comes with a license of Microsoft SQL Server to power the data stores, and can expand both storage and mailbox licenses instantaneously. This is in contrast to Barracuda’s Message Archiver that locks its customers into fixed internal storage and the maximum number of mailboxes licenses. If a company invested in a Barracuda appliance, and expands quickly, they are screwed. With Sonasoft’s email archiving appliances, a growing enterprise can relax knowing that its IT investment is good for the life of the server.
With our new SonaVault Email Archiving Appliance powered by Galaxy, we have several new enhancements. First, it will be powered by Microsoft Windows Server 2012. Sonasoft will make good use the new technology such as Microsoft Storage Pools to enhance our product. With Microsoft Storage Pools, adding additional drives and redundancy is exceptionally easy and will eventually replace RAID technology. (But, don’t worry, all our email archiving appliances come with RAID 5 at no extra cost.)
Other hardware features includes an Intel chassis as well as a solid state drive for the Microsoft Windows 2012, SonaVault email archiving application, Microsoft SQL Server, etc. Having the OS and all the applications on a drive that ‘does not spin’ allows for incredibly fast boot times and immediate access.
Of course, our SonaVault Email Archiving Software is also included. We’re the only archiving software that allows for multiple domain to be stored in a single archive as well as reduce the size of an Exchange Server up to 80 percent through Sonasoft’s true stubbing technology. No other email archiving solution can match this benchmark.
All new product launches are exciting and require a lot of work before we can hit the ‘go’ button. Our web team has been surgically focused to help prepare for this launch. It created a product page:
and a press release:
We also enlisted the help of our whole team and produced a video, which highlights our SonaVault Email Archiving Solutions through our new email archiving appliance. Here it is:

Finally, no launch would be complete without a new Twitter handle, “EmailArchiving_“. Twitter helps spread the word and increase our SEO efforts.
We are now approaching 2,000 followers and have gotten some traction on Twitter searches. A modest start to build on.
Thanks to all for your support. We’ll be giving more updates as they come.
