DALLAS--(Business Wire)-- Tek-Tools Software, a leading provider of IT resource management software solutions, today announced that it was placed in the "Challengers" quadrant in the Magic Quadrant for Storage Resource Management and SAN Management Software report1 recently released by Gartner, Inc. (NYSE: IT). The report from the leading information technology research and advisory company notes that in the past six to 12 months the ability to report and correlate storage used by server virtualization solutions and hypervisors was added to most SRM products. This is a "significant requirement recognized by the SRM vendors, because server virtualization solutions and projects often reduced storage visibility, management, utilization and subsequently increased storage costs. Therefore, customers demanded hypervisor support from their SRM vendors to reduce costs by improving storage manageability and use in virtualized server environments." "We appreciate Gartner`s recognition and I believe it is based on our hard work to stay ahead of the competition with a solution that addresses customers` continually developing requirements for managing storage resources and SANs, especially as virtualization has drastically changed those requirements," said Ken Barth, president and CEO, Tek-Tools. "We look forward to continuing to support our customers as game-changing technologies like virtualization take hold in the enterprise." 1) Gartner, Inc.
