Sonian Unveils Turnkey Migration Tool for Postini Users

Sonian, the pioneer in cloud-powered email archiving, today announced the launch of its migration tool for Postini users.

In an effort to alleviate the many migration headaches caused by Postini’s pending end of life, Sonian has developed a turnkey migration tool to easily move users messaging data into a Sonian cloud archive, making it searchable and therefore actionable. It is available immediately.

Since Google announced the end-of-life for the Postini mail and archive platform, many longtime users have struggled to find a way to easily migrate their data to another platform. While Google is providing a migration to their Vault product, users unhappy with that option are left with few simple export tools. Google limits the size of exports and the date ranges for the requisite searches; overwrites successive export files; does not offer telephone support to Postini users; and the service has suffered repeated and prolonged outages this year with “slow search” being a frequent complaint and a major gating factor in constructing export files. Sonian’s tool provides a more simple and effective way to export and migrate all Postini data.

“Mail migration has always been a big part of Sonian’s core offering.” said Jenn McAuliffe, vice president of sales at Sonian. “Postini implementations do come with their own well-documented peculiarities, and our Product Development group was able to quickly build this simple migration tool which we believe will help thousands of users easily move their valuable data.”

Today, Sonian archives house more than 8 billion objects for more than 12,000 customers in 40 countries, and those cloud-based archives grow an average of 300 gigabytes each day. Sonian is 100 percent web-based, platform agnostic and can be deployed quickly to get companies up and running in minutes to start realizing the cost savings and peace of mind that come with actionable data preservation.
