Sonasoft Corp., which provides compliance, disaster recovery and data protection solutions for the Microsoft platform, is offering a new version of SonaSafe for SQL Server. The new release offers pre-defined templates for backup, a new user interface, improved manageability, as well as enhanced replication and recovery capability.
The SonaSafe application maintains the redundant, standby server by continually updating the data with that retrieved from the primary system. The standby system can take over instantly in the event of primary system failure and can be onsite, or located at a remote site for protection against natural or man-made disasters.
Users can configure pre-defined templates to meet their data protection and disaster recovery needs, and once created, these templates can be used over again. A key requirement from Sonasoft's customers is the ability to use a SQL database for reporting purposes. A specific database can be restored periodically and can be effectively used for reporting purposes, according to Sonasoft. Another new feature in the latest release is the ability to add newly created databases to a pre-existing plan automatically, helping to make sure all databases are protected. Additionally, a revamped user interface allows users to navigate and manage different tasks more efficiently. For additional details about SonaSafe for SQL Server, go here.
