Precise Search and Better Reports with Microsoft SQL Server

Sonasoft's Email Archiving Appliance featuring DELL Servers includes a genuine license of Microsoft SQL ServerOther email archiving solutions have cut corners by using proprietary databases. Such solutions can lock IT administrators into ‘cookie-cutter’ reports and weak search features that have been known to add days onto an urgent eDiscovery inquiry. In contrast, SonaVault Email Archiving Appliance uses genuine Microsoft SQL Server databases and harnesses this Microsoft technology with intuitive, fast, and easy-to-use search capability.
