Sonian, the pioneer in cloud-powered email archiving, today announced DiscoverStor™, a unified information management platform for on-premises and cloud-based data management, compliance and information discovery. Building on Sonian’s groundbreaking cloud reference architecture, DiscoverStor now enables legal, IT, audit and line of business users in small to medium sized organizations to search, analyze and manage the storage of millions of documents in hundreds of different formats. Users can now uncover actionable intelligence for more informed discovery procedures, early case assessment, regulatory compliance, data and storage management and audit policy actions.
Enterprise data is growing at an average annual rate of nearly 40 percent and shows no signs of slowing, with 90 percent of the world's data created in the last two years alone. Businesses of all sizes are faced with the need to maintain and monitor these exploding datastores and in many organizations today, such data is siloed within disparate on-premises and hosted solutions. This makes it difficult to store, search, produce or recover data, and nearly impossible to derive meaning quickly, which is critical to informed investigation.
DiscoverStor provides a ‘single lens’ into disparate data and this unified information management platform will collect, index, store, search, and preserve communications and other unstructured data assets, no matter where they reside, providing unparalleled visibility into ‘dark data’ across the enterprise. It is available for a predictable monthly fee structured to meet the budget and functional needs of small to medium sized companies with few IT resources.
“The launch of DiscoverStor will mark our foray into the $3 billion enterprise information management market,” said Jeff Dickerson, CEO at Sonian. “We have long been recognized as a pioneer in email archiving, and DiscoverStor catapults us to another level where we will bring value and actionable insight to the explosion of unstructured data growing within organizations around the world.”
DiscoverStor leverages cloud computing and its superior economics, even as it embraces the vast troves of on-premises data. DiscoverStor eliminates the need for separate solutions for in-place information governance, cloud email and file archiving and early case assessment. Sonian is bringing this solution to market with a novel predictable pricing model based on the number of knowledge workers within the organization.
Discovery response is the fastest growing cost component of litigation and compliance investigations. Making it a predictable expense is crucial in helping all companies, but perhaps most especially smaller enterprises, to accurately budget these expenses.
DiscoverStor is being developed as an affordable solution for information management and discovery of both on-premises and cloud data for enterprises and small-to-medium sized companies involved in regular investigations. It is designed to help them conduct early case assessments, while reducing their expenses for legal process outsourcing (LPO) and outside counsel and eliminating the need for more robust and costly standalone solutions for information governance, archiving and discovery. Additional features include:
- Discovery Tools – precision tools automate the identification, collection and presentation of relevant data
- Fast Search – co-mingled search across email, attachments and files produces accurate results in seconds and hastens regulatory response
- Policy Creation – create policies for defensible deletion, flexible retention and complex legal holds, and employ automated policy-driven workflows to expedite processes
- Audit and Reporting – comprehensive reports on activity by user, date, action and other parameters, as well as full audit trail visibility
- Long-Term Preservation – documents, discussions and data no longer actively being used can be migrated from DiscoverStor to deep storage, reducing data storage expense
“Marrying pricing predictability to the reliability and elasticity of cloud computing presents a compelling and disruptive offering for companies seeking to get a handle on discovery costs,” said Marty Provin, executive vice president of Jordan Lawrence, and noted records and information management expert. “Traditional eDiscovery platforms typically cost more than small organizations can bear, but the complexity of data management during litigation isn’t necessarily reduced because the company is smaller.”
Demonstrations of DiscoverStor are being conducted this week at LegalTech in New York, the premier event for the intersection of legal and information technology professionals. Visit Sonian at booth #2127 or contact them to get started today at www.discoverstor.com.
Sonian’s secure, scalable cloud-powered information archiving platform enables organizations to address early stage discovery needs, achieve regulatory compliance, and reduce IT costs. Sonian’s archiving services can be deployed in minutes, require no hardware or software, and are compatible with all major email platforms. Sonian provides the only archiving offering in the market built from the ground up using advanced cloud computing technologies.

Adding public cloud resources to an existing application can be a daunting process. The tools that you currently use to manage the software and hardware outside the cloud aren’t always the best tools to efficiently grow into the cloud. All of the major configuration management tools have cloud orchestration plugins that can be leveraged, but there are also cloud-native tools that can dramatically improve the efficiency of managing your application lifecycle. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, ...

Much of IT terminology is often misused and misapplied. Modernization and transformation are two such terms. They are often used interchangeably even though they mean different things and have very different connotations. Indeed, it is somewhat safe to assume that in IT any transformative effort is likely to also have a modernizing effect, and thus, we can see these as levels of improvement efforts. However, many businesses are being led to believe if they don’t transform now they risk becoming ...

When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it’s important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. “Fly two mistakes high” is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee...
