Dallas, Texas (Vocus) April 5, 2007
Tek-Tools Software, the leading provider of resource management software solutions, announces the release of advanced reporting and monitoring for NetApp storage systems. Profiler for NetApp provides comprehensive support for Network Appliance Storage Systems.
Profiler enables a single end-to-end view of the NetApp SAN all the way from the LUNs to the initiators, covering both iSCSI and Fibre Channel SANs in a single report. Covering the NAS, SAN, and backup aspects of any NetApp environment, Profiler enhances native tools with added flexibility and in-depth reporting and analysis. Profiler's NetApp module offers device consoles (with drill-down capability), file analysis, automated usage trend reporting, capacity planning, and real time monitoring.
Tek-Tools' award winning design offers a consolidated view of heterogeneous environments, relating storage and backup resources to the applications they support. From SAN, NAS, iSCSI to direct attached storage, users can proactively monitor, alert, and act on storage utilization levels to systematically avoid outages and insure data usage policies are within compliance. Further efficiency and security is gained with the addition of Profiler's backup monitoring and reporting, which marries storage data to backup information for a complete view of the IT infrastructure.
"Storage technologies continue to develop in response to storage needs. Network Appliance has been at the forefront in the trend towards unified storage combining NAS, SAN, and data protection features," said Brian Radovich, Product Manager at Tek-Tools, Inc. "In response, we've developed Profiler's NetApp support to provide a full spectrum of monitoring and file analysis features for complex heterogeneous storage/backup environments."
"We have been observing an increasing trend among our Network Appliance customers using their storage arrays as both NAS and SAN storage. In many cases, some of them being fairly large implementations, customers are using their NetApp storage systems exclusively as SANs," said Ken Barth, President and CEO of Tek-Tools, Inc. "Profiler's ability to provide a single view of both NAS and SAN usage in relation to total usage as well as offer comprehensive trending fills a need among NetApp users not addressed by other vendors."
