Tek-Tools Announces Profiler Rx 3.5

Storage monitoring and reporting solution adds support for MS Exchange Server, EMC Celerra, XIOtech Magnitude 3D, HP Tru64 UNIX and StorageTek ACSLS

DALLAS, TX – Tek-Tools, Inc., the leader in the independent Storage Resource Management (SRM) market, announced version 3.5 of its Profiler Rx™ solution suite (formerly Storage Profiler™).

In launching its new product, the company noted that it has changed the name of its software offerings to Profiler Rx to better reflect the full capabilities of its product line, storage being just one. Tek-Tools’ Profiler Rx suite is a modular, web-based, real-time and historical resource reporting application targeting ‘pain points’ in customer environments. Profiler Rx 3.5 offers new modules that support Microsoft Exchange Server, EMC Celerra, XIOtech Magnitude 3D, HP Tru64 UNIX and StorageTek Automated Cartridge Library System (ACLS).

Profiler Rx offers a consolidated view of DAS, NAS, SAN, backup and server environments, identifying and helping to correct inefficiencies in the management and allocation of capacity. A valuable tool for organizations looking to reduce operational expenses by streamlining their storage and backup infrastructure, Profiler Rx provides granular visibility for chargeback, resource allocation, SLA reporting and business/application views of their storage environments.

The new solution modules available for Profiler Rx, like existing modules, help administrators save time, ensure data availability, verify backup success and address many other device- and application-specific pain points. In addition to the new Profiler for MS Exchange, EMC Celerra, XIOtech Magnitude 3D, HP Tru64 Unix and StorageTek ACSLS, Tek-Tools has developed powerful, efficient support for all major operating systems, for storage hardware by leading vendors such as EMC, Network Appliance and XIOtech, network switches and HBAs, SQL databases and backup and recovery solutions from CA, Veritas, Legato and IBM Tivoli.

“We continually work with our customer base to identify and develop the most needed solution modules to address their pain points, and the new capabilities available in Profiler 3.5 help users to make the most of their existing investments as well as evaluate where future acquisitions may be justified,” said Ken Barth, President and CEO of Tek-Tools. “With our modular approach, we enable administrators within departments as well as enterprise-wide managers to select as much or as little pain relief as needed, instead of presenting a single, over-featured, end-to-end solution at a much higher cost and complexity.”

Profiler Rx offers asset management, alerting and notification, performance management, capacity planning, forecasting and trending for heterogeneous networks. It installs quickly with only one download and easily integrates with existing storage systems and applications, giving customers immediate return on their investment. Its rapidly growing customer base includes large corporations, government and educational agencies, departments and business units within enterprises and small to midsized businesses.

Profiler Rx 3.5 is available immediately. Pricing starts at $7,500 and increases based on the size and complexity of the storage network.
