This is for Software Engineers with around 2+ to 3+ years of experience working in Some of the top MNC companies listed below
NAME OF COMPANY::::SALARY IN INDIAN RUPEES(INR)
-------------------------------------------------
Accenture 2,00,000 to 4,50,000

Cisco 3,00,000 to 5,50,000
Tata Elxsi 2,00,000 to 4,50,000

All these companies have storage related products or services & will be hiring storage professionals. This is a very rough estimate & NOT to be considered the real salary structure of these companies - I DO NOT TAKE RESPONSIBILITY OF ANY EVENTS OCCURING DUE TO PUBLISHING THIS INFO - this same info can be found in many forums & blogs.

Guys & Gals - dont ever worry about salary - its always a variable thing - its based on ur previous experience, mainly based on your performance in the interviews, based on your current salary , based on how urgent or important is the hiring in the company , how much value addition u bring to the new job & new company . So stop worrying about Salary & other packages & concentrate on improving your skillset,knowledge & experience.Any of the above listed company may pay low than whats said above or they may pay much much higher than whats mentioned here - its not always easy to say which is the highest salary paying company - as all companies keep increasing their pay packages. Also dont forget that companies may fire or terminate you if you fail in keeping upto their expectations - so rather than worrying about pay packages just focus on excelling in your performance & your present company or the first company whichever it might be that you join - itself may recognise your potential & pay you more than you expect. You can surely have the best & I always wish you the best in your Career - I know u will have a Great Career & its not always because of a Great Salary.

After receiving lots emails about salaries in India, I thought of gathering some more facts from aquintances in indian companies, recruiters and others who have been involved in IT placement sector. This is a very ROUGH estimate & not to be taken as serious data.Indian Salary are based on the concept of CTC ( Cost to Company ) and that makes it very hard to compare offers of any two IT companies. There are companies that include every detail including their contribution to PF(Provident Fund), and other companies that try to be fair by including only the real components that are being given to you.

There seems to be offers which include performance bonus in the overall offer with a clause that it is based on overall performance of the company. MNC's and some companies do not play these games, so you are better off taking their offers as the baseline. I tried to eliminate the performance components in the calculations below. Be wary of some companies that include variable components into CTC.

General Salary Ranges in some software companies are listed below.. [ Most companies fall into this range including Big companies like satyam, infosys, wipro ... ]. Numbers below are estimated CTC in terms of Salary Per Annum in INR(indian rupees) where 1 Lakh is 100,000INR.

Entry Level / Fresh Graduates [ 0 to 2 years ] : 2.5 to 4.8 Lakhs. I have seen this being as high as 6 Lakhs in Bangalore.
Junior Positions [ 1 to 4 years ] : 3.5 to 7 Lakhs
Mid level [ 3 to 6 years ] : 5 to 11 Lakhs
Sr Level [ 6 and Above, Project Manager, Lead etc ] : 9 to 17 Lakhs [ Too much competition for these jobs ]
Leadership [ Delivery, Operations, HR etc. 12+ Years ] : 15 to 25 Lakhs [ Internal candidates get the first preference here. ]
Sr. Leadership [ Operations Head, VP etc ]: 18 to 45 Lakhs
Executive Leadership [ SVP, COO of Biz Unit etc.] : 35 to 70 Lakhs
C Suite of Company [ Country Head, CEO, CFO, CTO ] : Heard of offers ranging from 2 to 7 Crores. This cannot be confirmed, but most recruiters seem to agree with this range.

Now to some spicy cases :

* Entry level offers in 2006 by Microsoft are around 9.5 Lakhs, Google at 12.5 Lakhs, Amazon at 7.5 Lakhs. They are only focusing on top grade schools including the IIT's. Interviews are hard to get through.
* Google, Microsoft, Amazon, Yahoo etc., dont seem to care about the money as long as the candidate is the right fit for their Organization.Some examples I heard of include 25+ Lakhs for testing lead, and around 35+ Lakhs for a Sr. Developer, 78+ Lakhs for a Director.
* MBA's of indian schools like IIM , ISB etc., are starting around 20 Lakhs and going all the way to 1.5 Crores. There were recent examples of 2 MBA grads rejecting a 1 Crore offer to pursue their own enterprise.
* Also companies like Oracle, CSC etc., offering beyond the above grid to attract mid and senior level talent. They have large plans for India and are unable to meet the internal demand.

Information Lifecycle Management - A must to know for Storage professionals



Information Lifecycle Management refers to a wide-ranging set of strategies for administering storage systems on computing devices. Specifically, four categories of storage strategies may be considered under the auspices of ILM.
Information Management consists of the practices that facilitate operational storage management. These include the principles that guide ILM; the storage management tools and practices; database management practices; system performance and monitoring; system configuration; capacity planning; and business controls. Business controls generally include chargeback, costing and P&L-related metrics.

How the ILM Service works?

1 Analysis of requirements and business policies
2 Data Archiver service installed and enabled on customers network
3 Archiving policies and schedules defined Storage Options
4a Data archived to customers’ storage
4b Optional offsite backup of customer archive storage pool
5 Data archived to offsite storage utility at InTechnology data centres

Information Lifecycle Management
(sometimes abbreviated ILM) is the practice of applying certain policies to the effective management of information throughout its useful life. This practice has been used by Records and Information Management (RIM) Professionals for over three decades and had its basis in the management of information in paper or other physical forms (microfilm, negatives, photographs, audio or video recordings and other assets).

ILM includes every phase of a "record" from its beginning to its end. And while it is generally applied to information that rises to the classic definition of a record (Records management), it applies to any and all informational assets. During its existence, information can become a record by being identified as documenting a business transaction or as satisfying a business need. And while most records are thought of as having a relationship to business, not all do. Much recorded information may not serve a business need of any sort, but still serves to document a critical point in history or to document an event. Examples of these are birth, death, medical/health and educational records.
