There’s gold in the #VMware & #Storage fields!! latest #millshilljobsindex

Latest MJI (MillsHill Jobs Index) – stats courtesy of Jobserve, see http://www.jobserve.co.uk.

There’s gold in the VMware & Storage fields!

 

  • No. of VMware UK contract jobs up 14.40%
  • No. of VMware UK permanent jobs up 6.87% & hits reporting period/year high of 825 jobs!

 

  • No. of Storage UK contract jobs up 11.26%
  • No. of Storage UK permanent jobs up 20.62% & hits reporting period/year high of 696 jobs!

 

Very interesting that the number of VMware & Storage permanent jobs have both risen across the last three reporting periods. These reporting periods span ‘summertime’ when traditionally there is a dip in the number of jobs! These stats could indicate that data centre transformation, cloud-ifying the datacentre to be a platform for providing ‘as a service’ type services (IAAS, PAAS, DAAS/VDI etc), is currently an area of much activity!

Very very very interesting – if I wasn’t an IT recruiter then I’d be cracking open my VMware & Storage books!

…how I wish I’d paid attention during Computing class!

All comments welcome!
