The Journal Of A Linux Sysadmin

200609 Poll Results: Who Is Managing Your Linux Server/s?

| Comments

I left this pool running for 2 months as I was really interested to see more results from the peoples browsing the site. Here are the final results:

Who is managing your Linux server/s?

  • Me, of course! –> 79% (139 Votes)

  • No one… Do I need someone to manage my server? –> 6% (11 Votes)

  • My sysadmin (full time employed) –> 6% (10 Votes)

  • My hosting company takes care of this –> 4% (7 Votes)

  • My programmer/s take care of the server when they have time –> 3% (5 Votes)

  • Outsourced using a freelancer –> 2% (4 Votes)

  • Outsourced using a company –> 1% (1 Votes)

Total Votes : 177

Conclusion? Well it is clear that most of the peoples that use this site are managing themselves their Linux systems. This is very cool, and what I was hoping. As you probably know, myself I am working as a freelancer and the small number of votes shown from peoples outsourcing their sysadmin works doesn’t mean that there are not many doing this, just that they have not a reason to use this site.

Please feel free to comment on the results of this poll using the comment form of this post.

ps. this month’s new poll (What’s your favorite file system?), will try to show what is the most popular file system among the users of this site.
