Sonasoft Corp. ( has announced the
availability of its new version of SonaSafe for SQL Servers. This
release contains features including pre-defined templates for backup,
new user interface, improved manageability, enhanced replication and
recovery capability.

Sonasoft provides a high-availability solution, protecting data from
hardware/software failures and human errors. 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. The
standby system can be on-site, 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. Once created, these templates
can be used over and over again. One of the key requirements from
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. Another new feature is the
ability to add newly created databases to a pre-existing plan
automatically. This will help to make sure all the databases are
protected automatically. The revamped user interface allows users to
navigate and manage different tasks very efficiently.
