Barracuda Cloud Archive (Sonian)

We have had a couple of legal inquiries which required us to review emails for a user or users. Using the Barracuda Cloud Archiving Service, we have been able to perform searches quickly, narrowing or expanding the search criteria is easy, resulting in exactly what we were looking for. This has saved us with claims for collections, as well as a couple of legal HR matters. It is my trusted go to application.

For every company which is too big for MailStore. MailStore is much cheaper and easier...so mostly enough for 5 to 20 people companies. But for all bigger companies with 200 plus users it is the right solution. Please be sure, that it is not easy to get it running. But when it runs, it is mostly stable.

The product is good but for this specific product there are often some technical problems. Mostly support in Vienna can solve them soon. The development is very, very slow. I have asked for some changes. They gave the okay to make it with a feature request...but 3 years later there is still no code for my problems. Not even one feature request was done.

We only need support when initially setting it up. We really have not had to call for user or help support on this product. It has always worked and is always easy to use.

The support in Vienna is very, very great. They are fast and can support almost all problems by themselves. Especially Mr. Michael Holzer is a very high specialist and you can ask him almost everything. Just write a mail to emeasupport and you will be sure, that some minutes or hours later you will get a kind and professional call.

For us it is important that it is stable. Because of this we thought it is a good idea to buy a clustered station. Barracuda can do this and we bought 2 1050 boxes and linked them. At the end the price was also okay...we also evaluated Symantec and at the end both were candidates but Barracuda made better price.

Return on Investment

Barracuda Cloud Archive (Sonian)

  • We saw a significant reduction in storage of email data that was previously stored in PST files on local machines.
  • We can archive data for longer periods, which drives retention and email data storage needs.
  • This product gives us quick access and support for eDiscovery requests from legal departments.

  • Long term archiving is good.
  • Integrating of many PSTs cost extra money for PST Enterprise. This should be included.
