By: Lora Bentley

UK-based IT staffing firm Ifftner Solutions says requirements arising from Sarbanes-Oxley and the European Union's data retention law are creating an increasing demand for data storage specialists in the UK.

According to eGov monitor, Ifftner representative Melanie Bosley says the requirement that U.S.

companies be able to produce e-mail written in the last five years that contains particular words?-?as well as?other longer data retention periods?- has resulted in a growing number of storage architectsArticle Search, consultants and engineers.

And the demand will continue to increase if the growing volume of digital data is any indication. An IDC study indicates that the global data volume is increasing 60 percent per year.
