April 10, 2012 – San Jose, California, SonaVault, the Intelligent Email Archiving Solution from Sonasoft Corporation, provides more than sophisticated eDiscovery and superior management of reducing the disk storage of Microsoft’s Exchange Servers. Here is a surprising new use for our email archiving software that recently addressed one customer’s urgent need to restore his mission critical email system following a system maintenance breakdown.

“I just want to say THANK YOU! Sonasoft! We had a severe email server meltdown yesterday”, said Jay Bohannon, Information Technology Manager for Western Partitions, Inc. “Thankfully, SonaVault was there to save us!”

“I was attempting a Calendar restore for one user from our current tape backup system. During the restore, the system locked up and we were forced to cancel the Exchange restore halfway through. Needless to say, this left our Exchange Store in a dismounted state. After numerous attempts and hours on the phone with a Microsoft expert, we were unable to recover the damaged Email store. We were forced to restore from a recent backup, which left our users with missing email from yesterday.”

“I jumped into SonaVault, searched for all email from the day before and sure enough – there were 3,400 messages sitting there from yesterday! It was so reassuring to know that we would be able to recover the missing email, which would otherwise be completely lost.”

“Thank you once again for all your help and your terrific program. You’ve been terrific to work with and I really appreciate everything you’ve done for us!”

“Sonasoft calls upon its past ten years of professional experience with Microsoft Exchange Server and Microsoft SQL Server. Working with and expanding Microsoft technologies is part of our core competence,” said Neil Khanna, Sonasoft’s Vice President of Client Services and Operations and the head of its SonaMigration services. “We are always happy to hear when our customers have discovered a new use for our email archiving solution, especially if it restores mission critical email that would have been lost.”

“We designed SonaVault, our email archiving software, with non-proprietary archive stores of Microsoft SQL Server. The power of Microsoft SQL allows for a seamless transfer of data or third party tool integration”, said Bilal Ahmed, Sonasoft’s CTO and Vice President of Engineering. “Customers also benefit from SonaVault’s use of Microsoft Journaling mechanism to extract and archive email messages. This guarantees that every message that is sent or received through the Exchange Server is immediately archived even if it is deleted or lost on the Exchange Server. It’s reassuring to know that the fundamental technology and design underlining SonaVault Email Archiving Software is solid enough that it could act as an emergency Exchange recovery mechanism of lost emails and PST files when needed. A new use for our archiving software, in such an important function as email recovery, is always welcomed news.”
