Sonian Selected by AlwaysOn as an OnDemand Top 100 Winner

Recognized for Leveraging Cloud Computing Platform to Drive Advanced Email Archiving and eDiscovery

NEEDHAM, MA--(Marketwire - April 12, 2010) -  Sonian, Inc., the trusted cloud-powered universal data management company, today announced that it has been chosen by AlwaysOn as one of the OnDemand Top 100 winners. Inclusion in the OnDemand Top 100 signifies a company's leadership amongst its peers with game-changing approaches and technologies that are likely to disrupt existing markets and entrenched players. Sonian was specially selected by the AlwaysOn editorial team and industry expert partners such as Hewlett-Packard, Morgan Stanley, KPMG and leaders spanning the globe based on a set of five criteria: innovation, market potential, commercialization, stakeholder value, and media buzz.

Sonian and the OnDemand Top 100 companies will be honored at AlwaysOn's OnDemand event on April 19, 2010 at Hewlett-Packard's Worldwide Headquarters in Palo Alto, CA. This two-and-a-half-day executive event features CEO presentations and high-level debates on how the Internet is disrupting how companies -- from small businesses to large enterprises -- create, store, distribute, analyze, and take advantage of their mission-critical data.

"As the digital information created by businesses continues to explode at astronomical rates, the need to store, manage, analyze, and share this information is becoming extremely challenging," said Tony Perkins, founder and editor of AlwaysOn. "We congratulate this year's OnDemand Top 100 for providing the technology platforms and services needed to manage and leverage this new era of information complexity and overload."

With email and employee-generated content doubling each year, enterprises need a trusted partner that can enable a cost-effective and scalable data archiving strategy. Sonian's archive and search intelligence platform, built from the ground up on a cloud-compute infrastructure, unlocks the value in "dark-data" stored in email and files throughout an organization via its SaaS archiving and eDiscovery application. 

"Sonian is delighted to be recognized as a 2010 OnDemand Top 100 winner for its innovative cloud-powered email archiving and e-discovery SaaS offering," said Greg Arnette, founder and CTO of Sonian. "Conceived and built on a cloud-powered software stack, Sonian's service processes the most data against the fewest CPU hours, giving customers cost-effective, enterprise-grade data archiving and eDiscovery with scale based on individual business demands."

The OnDemand Top 100 winners were selected from among hundreds of other technology companies nominated by investors, bankers, journalists, and industry insiders. The AlwaysOn editorial team conducted a rigorous three-month selection process to finalize the 2010 list. A full list of all the OnDemand Top 100 winners can be found on the AlwaysOn website at:
