Tek-Tools Intros Profiler for VMware

DALLAS -- Tek-Tools Software, a leading provider of IT resource management software solutions, today announced general availability of Profiler for VMware, a new module in The Profiler Suite, to optimize capacity utilization, performance, and availability of virtual IT infrastructures. Profiler for VMware is a completely agentless software solution that provides end-to-end monitoring of VMware ESX hosts, virtual machines, and storage, and delivers actionable insight through pre-packaged and customized reports. With this addition to the Profiler Suite, end users can monitor all four IT infrastructure components servers, storage, backup and apps – from one console including virtual servers.

Early release customers gain efficiencies

Early-release customers have been using the new module in production environments, reclaiming terabytes of over-allocated virtual storage, eliminating unused storage hardware, capturing ESX server performance data, avoiding hundreds of thousands of dollars of unnecessary IT purchases and deferring maintenance expense.

“Profiler for VMware showed us that we could take many of our physical hosts and convert them to Virtual Machines, saving us space and cost in our datacenters and helping us centralize over eight terabytes of storage,” said Ed Delgado, Storage Administrator, Risk Metrics. “It is a welcome addition to the Profiler Suite. Now I can look across the entire IT infrastructure – physical and virtual – from a single console. At a glance from the Profiler console I can see how servers are performing, how much storage is available, the status of backup operations and application availability. Plus, I can drill down in any area for more in-depth reporting, the growth rate of allocated storage or historical performance of ESX servers, for example.”
