November 28, 2007 - Data archiving and disaster recovery (DR) are likely to dominate the storage related considerations of IT organizations as they plan for 2008, according to a survey of 472 IT executives across North America and the UK.


BridgeHead Software’s “Annual Information Lifecycle Management (ILM) Audit 2007” reveals that IT executives listed - archiving of file data (57 percent), email (55 percent) and database data (42 percent) as three of their top five storage related areas of interest over coming months. The other two issues within the top five were DR (59 percent) and Backup (55 percent). 


Another issue identified by the research was green storage, which is likely to grow into an even bigger concern in 2008, with 84 percent of IT executives complaining that storage vendors should be doing more to improve the energy efficiency of their products.
