The complexity of data storage is a major concern for data centre managers, according to a new study.
Symantec's recently published 2010 State of the Data Centre report revealed that skills shortages and rising costs are also an issue, ITWeb Business reports.
The company surveyed 1,780 data centre managers across 26 countries.
Of those polled, 71% said they are considering using deduplication technologies in the future.
The study revealed that over 50% of companies plan to make changes to their data strategies this year.
Commenting on the findings, Symantec Storage Specialist Sheldon Hand said: "Security, backup, recovery and continuous data protection are the most important initiatives in 2010, ahead of virtualisation."
Speaking recently to Data Quality Pro, Why New Systems Fail author Phil Simon said many companies do not realise their data is a mess until an expert takes a look at it for them.
"Many times they don't know that their data needs major purification," he added.
