Skills that make a storage administrator’s resume stand out

Experts and hiring managers say the following skills and areas of experience make a storage administrator’s resume attractive:

The ability to design, configure and administer SANs. This is by far the hottest skill in storage today.

Thorough knowledge of the old standby, tape storage. “Tape libraries are still the chosen backup medium in most companies,” says David Foote of Foote Partners. The need to perform a full backup and restore won’t vanish for years.

Experience managing either a specific vendor’s products or a multivendor environment.

Experience working with the vast, multiterabyte data warehouses that are becoming de rigueur in corporate America.
