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

"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."
