NEEDHAM, MA--(Marketwire - February 22, 2010) -  Sonian, Inc., the trusted cloud-powered universal data management company, today announced that New York City-based W. O'Donnell Consulting, Inc., is deploying the cloud-powered Sonian email archiving and e-discovery service to its small and mid-sized business (SMB) customers. W. O'Donnell Consulting offers the Sonian hosted service as a complement to its existing messaging and email-protection offerings in order to meet its customers' growing data and compliance demands.

"As the volume of email sent and stored grows, archiving email gets more and more relevant to all our clients," said Bill O'Donnell, president of W. O'Donnell Consulting, Inc. "It's wonderful to recommend an easy-to-use and affordable cloud-based system like Sonian that comes without the servers, databases and maintenance headaches of a premise-installed archiving system. Going forward, we do not plan to offer on-site email archiving. We've made the commitment to employ Cloud-based archiving instead, and Sonian offers the best price point with more margin for resellers than its competitors."

In concert with its qualified team, W. O'Donnell Consulting, Inc. works in partnership with a variety of external resources to provide a total business solution. Because the firm offers the Kerio MailServer, a cross-platform messaging and collaboration solution, as an alternative to Microsoft Exchange, it was critical that Sonian work with both its Kerio MailServer and Microsoft Exchange customers.

Sonian's email archiving service is unique among email archiving providers because its platform-agnostic, SaaS-based model supports all messaging platforms. Sonian's email archiving solution stores email messages in the cloud and offers unlimited storage at a simple monthly price/user. Using Sonian's email archiving solution ensures all regulatory compliance statutes are met and helps them satisfy the following: regulatory compliance (SEC, FINRA, SOX, FRCP, etc); litigation support and e-discovery; storage resource management.

"Sonian takes pride in its ability to get partners like W. O'Donnell Consulting up to speed quickly and to help them resell Sonian to their customers," said George Nichols, CEO of Sonian. "As a result, W. O'Donnell Consulting can provide customers of all sizes with an affordable, reliable, scalable, secure and feature-rich hosted email archiving and e-discovery service that ensures all regulatory compliance statues are met and makes litigation support simple with advanced e-discovery features."
