Start-up rolls out storage resource management

Storage start-up Tek-Tools Inc. last week unveiled software that helps users manage storage subsystems and more effectively handle network backup and disaster recovery.

Tek-Tools' Storage Profiler 1.1 is new software that lets IT managers view current and projected disk capacity, as well as generate reports on current and historical statistics such as CPU, memory, performance, individual disk usage and individually-set quotas.

The software consists of a browser-based management component that monitors statistics collected from the storage devices on a network. Each storage device monitored contains a piece of agent software, which sends alerts to the management component using the Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) or the Common Information Model.

Storage Profiler identifies wasted storage space and sends warnings to IT managers when systems approach capacity or performance limits. The software contains a real-time events console that provides easy-to-understand descriptions of SNMP traps and suggested corrective actions for incoming alerts.

Storage Profiler currently works on Windows NT and 2000, NetWare, Solaris and Oracle platforms, and it will be available for Linux networks in the first quarter of 2001. It supports direct-, network- and Fibre Channel-attached storage-area networks. It contains more than 35 standard reports that identify storage capacity, utilization and performance trends.

Pricing starts at US$7,000 for one server and 10 agents; the software is available now.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Windows 10 / HP Spectre

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
