Salaries up for storage pros

Storage professionals may be harried and overworked, but apparently they're not underappreciated as our exclusive Storage Salary survey reveals. In the eleventh edition of this survey, executive editor Ellen O'Brien finds that, on average, storage pros earn about $94,000 -- pretty fair compensation for those late nights and weekends nursing balky storage arrays back to health.

Contributing to storage managers' woes is the unrelenting growth of file data. The alternatives used to be pretty limited, which resulted in dozens of isolated and unconnected NAS filers popping up in data centers. Jacob Gsoedl provides an in-depth view of scale-out NAS systems that could cure NAS sprawl.

Storage magazine's research machine is still churning; read what your peers plan to buy as editorial director Rich Castagna analyzes the results of the fall edition of our tenth Storage Purchasing Intentions survey.
