A senior storage analyst is in charge of a server or multiple servers, ensuring they are in working order. The senior storage analyst needs to perform regular backups to ensure that no data is lost; these backups need to be tested regularly to make sure that they are functioning properly. The senior storage analyst also ensures that no data is accessed by unauthorized parties and that adequate security measures are in place. The senior storage analyst needs to carry out maintenance, often at regular intervals, to make sure that the servers are performing at their optimal levels. When operations are not working as they should, the analyst needs to carry out tests to troubleshoot the issues and correct the problems.
