Every system should have at least one person, a systems administrator, in charge of system maintenance and operation. It is the responsibility of system administrators to ensure the smooth operation of the system and to perform a wide variety of tasks that require special privileges. In most cases, it makes sense for companies to outsource this function. Among other things, a system administrator is responsible for:

Bringing the system up and down for maintenance
Making certain that adequate backups (regular copies of files on the system) are made and stored for future use
Handling problems related to use of limited computer resources (disk space, number of processes, and so on)
Alleviating system communication (network) stoppages due to failed connections
Applying operating system updates and maintenance fixes
Providing general support to users
