Admins reveal 2007 priorities

Peter Bochner, Site Editor
Disaster recovery will be one of the top IT priorities for Windows administrators in 2007.

That's the message admins who have taken SearchWinComputing.com's reader survey are telling us.

When asked what their biggest concern was about their Windows storage environment, 35 percent of the respondents to the survey said it was disaster and data recovery, while 24 percent said it was backing up their company's data. These concerns far outweighed the other choices, such as managing my existing storage (11 percent), moving from DAS to networked storage (8 percent), expanding my department's or company's storage capacity (7 percent) and storage consolidation (6.3 percent).

SearchWinComputing.com members' focus on disaster recovery was bolstered in a subsequent survey question that asked respondents for the major initiatives their IT department would be focused on in the next 12 months. Again, disaster recovery led the way, with 48 percent of the respondents choosing that. This was followed by server consolidation (47 percent) and implementing new business applications (45 percent).
