Sonasoft Combines Archiving and Disaster Recovery
Sonasoft, Corp. announces the release of disaster recovery capability for its archiving solution. SonaSafe for Email Archiving is designed to meet regulatory compliance and eDiscovery needs of organizations. SonaSafe for SQL Server provides data protection and disaster recovery for Microsoft SQL Servers. By combining both the solutions, Sonasoft is the only company that provides disaster recovery, high availability and data protection for archive server through a common platform. SonaSafe Archiving and Disaster Recovery products have helped companies avoid bankruptcy and meet compliance during turmoil times and a shaky economy.
Businesses are being increasingly asked to retrieve emails during litigation. Also Companies need to comply with regulatory compliance requirements like Sarbanes-Oxley and HIPAA. According to Sarbanes-Oxley, public companies must keep all documents and communications for seven years following an audit. The penalties for destroying or altering a document can include fines up to $5 million and imprisonment for up to 20 years. Hence, Email is becoming Achilles Heel of document and records management. In business, a computer disaster equals an event that halts the normal operation of day-to-day business activities. Events like hurricanes, tornadoes, major fires, blizzards, floods, are happening companies that do not have a proper disaster plan pay dearly through lost productivity and financial loss. It is imperative that organizations not only implement solutions to meet their eDiscovery and Compliance needs, but also protect the archive server in case of a disaster.
SonaSafeR for Email Archiving will capture all incoming, outgoing and internal emails and store them in archive databases as a Single Instance Store (SIS). SonaSafe Email Archiving solution supports Exchange Server 2000, 2003 and 2007. The archive solution stores data in SQL databases. By using SonaSafe for SQL Server, the archive databases are reliably backed up and replicated to a disaster recovery site. Both the archiving and disaster recovery solutions are built on a common platform and customers get a two-in-one solution. Typically customers have to purchase two disparate solutions from two different vendors and they are not integrated. Also, it would cost three to four times more than the SonaSafe solution.

I’m just delighted to have found Sonasoft and would highly encourage others to use it”, A.Sadr, Computer Systems Director, Office of the Provost, University of Southern California (USC).
