“Sonasoft is always looking for new ways to help users utilize the full

bundled offering, Sonasoft has carefully selected an integrated product
suite that is unique to the industry which provides the full functionally
and flexibility demanded by our customers.”

The SonaRAMBO bundled offering consists of elements from both its
SonaExchange and SonaVault product offering.

SonaExchange – Replication, migration and backup – delivers unparalleled
levels of backup / recovery and replication by incorporating flexible,
state-of-the-art technology. This provides SMBs the ability to be up and
running quickly in case of system failure or total disaster. SonaExchange
delivers total protection of data ensuring mission-critical information is
accessible at all times. Sonasoft’s patent-pending solution enables the
rapid recovery of emails at the point-of-failure without losing a single
email, calendar, contact and other important information.

Key features of SonaExchange include:

1. Backup and Recovery of Exchange Information Stores

With information store protection SonaExchange Protector can recover
Exchange Server to a point-in-time or point-of-failure without loss of

2. Email Recovery

SonaExchange Protector takes a pro-active role by performing the backup at
the mailbox level and stores emails in Outlook PST format. When needed,
single or multiple emails, contacts, calendar or any message item can be
recovered with a simple and powerful SonaExchange Web Console. As the
messages are stored in PST format, backup file can be opened with Outlook,
providing an additional option to search and retrieve required emails.

3. Primary Exchange Server Replication

Sonasoft’s patent-pending, unique and extremely powerful technology provides
replication of the Exchange Server at the mailbox level. SonaExchange
Replicator, unlike competitive offerings keeps the Standby Exchange Server
online and does not transfer physical corruptions. This is the result of
replication taking place at the mailbox level by restoring emails to the
Standby Exchange Server. Primary Exchange Server replication is an inherent,
hardware agnostic, SonaExchange capability to seamlessly switch to a Standby
Exchange Server, without loss of data protection capabilities.

4. Exchange Server Migration

SonaExchange Migrator replicates mailboxes from Primary Exchange Server to a
new Exchange Server running a higher version of Exchange than the Primary
Exchange. During the replication process, users still access the Primary
Exchange Server. Once the replication is completed; fail-over can be
initiated. This re-points all users to the mailboxes on the new migrated
server. At that point, all emails can be sent and received through the new

SonaVault – Archiving and protection – delivers a new generation of email
archiving solutions. SonaVault is a stand-alone, software based, powerful
and comprehensive email archiving solution for Microsoft Exchange Server
2000, 2003, 2007 and 2010. It enables organizations to archive, search and
retrieve emails to achieve regulatory compliance and operational excellence.

Key features of SonaVault include:

1. Storage Management

SonaVault for Email Archiving delivers a fully integrated portfolio of
features and tools to lighten a data encumbered Exchange server. The
resultant effect is an improved efficiency, performance, and better storage
management solution.

SonaVault uses stub technology without any client side component
installation to reduce the size of the Exchange Server. In this process,
message contents including attachments are removed from the email and a
pointer, namely “stub” is created in the email body which has a small
footprint compared to the actual message size. This is transparent to the
end-users who access emails through Outlook in the usual fashion. Stubbed
emails when replied or forwarded, retrieve contents from the SonaVault Store
instead of the Exchange Server, seamlessly to the end-user.

2. Continuous Email Archiving

When used in conjunction with Sonasoft’s Exchange Replication product,
Continuous Email Archiving can be achieved without the loss of emails even
after the Primary Exchange Server switches over to the Standby Exchange
Server. This is due to the fact that the Standby Exchange Server is always
online with a pre-configured archiving agent which will start archiving as
soon as it assumes the primary – active – role.

3. Secure and Guaranteed Archiving

The SonaVault solution employs reliable safeguards including encryption to
ensure that the email is tamper-proof without the possibility of being
altered. SonaVault uses Microsoft’s Journaling mechanism to extract and
archive messages. This ensures that every message which goes out and enters
an Exchange Server is archived even if the message is deleted by the user
from his or her mailbox.

4. Regulatory Compliance Requirements

SonaVault for Email Archiving solution helps meet a wide variety of
regulatory compliance requirements such as Sarbanes Oxley, Health Insurance
Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), SEC requirements and many more
worldwide governmental regulations.
