NEWTON, MA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/03/13 -- Sonian, the pioneer in cloud-powered archiving and search, today announced it has integrated its Email Archive solution with Parallels Automation. Utilizing the Application Packaging Standard (APS), the Sonian Gold certified APS package enables Parallels Automation Partners to provide this robust mission-critical service to their small and medium business (SMB) customers. The new integration allows Sonian to work seamlessly with the Parallels control panel, provisioning and billing system, making it possible for SMBs to purchase a subscription from their service provider via the Parallels self-service portal and manage their Sonian Email Archive service directly. This zero-touch approach is enabled for a wide range of SaaS/IaaS cloud offerings, which are currently available within the Parallels APS ecosystem.
"Parallels welcomes Sonian to the ecosystem of APS-enabled ISV partners," said, John Zanni, Vice President of Service Provider Marketing and Alliances at Parallels. "Sonian is a well recognized brand in the Email Archive cloud service segment, and we expect their solution to prove to be popular with our service provider partners and their SMB customers."
Under the APS Gold certification program, Parallels and Sonian have already on-boarded two major distribution partners. Both Apptix, the premier provider of hosted business communication, collaboration and IT solutions, and TTLC, a service provider in internet and IT solutions, have been provisioning Sonian's archiving services for several months. There are also a number of other partners working through the on-boarding phase. These companies, and future customers, will benefit from continuous compliance and email archiving support directly from Sonian.
"Every day the IT world continues to advance, accompanied by compliance regulations and new industry standards that require better data storage management from companies," said Jeff Dickerson, CEO at Sonian. "We are very excited to be part of the Parallels APS ecosystem with our newly released Gold certified APS package, because together we can continue to quickly accelerate deployment of our email archiving solutions to the SMB market that meets these new higher levels of storage and eDiscovery needs."
