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.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
