alphadogg writes “Fifty percent of IT executives say their data centers are understaffed, and companies are still looking for more ways to cut costs, according to Symantec’s latest “State of the Data Center” report. Sixteen percent of survey respondents said their data centers are extremely understaffed, and another 34% called their data centers somewhat understaffed. At the same time, data centers are becoming more complex and harder to manage, with more applications, data and increasingly demanding service-level agreements. “Data center complexity has led to a lot of staffing challenges,” says Sean Derrington, director of storage management and high availability at Symantec.”
