Server Support Staffing Ratios 2010

April, 2009


In this study on server support staffing ratios, we provide three benchmarking metrics: server support staff as a percentage of IT staff, users per server support staff member, and, most importantly, servers per server support staff member. We provide these metrics for small, midsize, and large organizations. We also look at other factors that can influence server support staffing, including the number of operating systems in an environment, the impact of virtualization on data center efficiency, and the amount of time support staff spends on projects and technical support. (14 pp., 8 figs.)
