    I'n my department we currently support 250 or so UNIX servers. 90% Solaris
    10% Linux on mainframe.

    Our group UNIX infrastructure has about 20 sysadmins split in 4 groups

    Operations (5) Monitoring, Level 1 trouble shooting, system patching, tape
    monkeys, server racking etc..
    Production Support (7) Application/System administrators "Web
    Servers,DBA's,Middleware apps etc.."
    Product Specilist (4) Big Iron, Clustering, BigIron Storage (SAN)
    Project Leads (4) System Architects

    I think this model works really well every now and then we give the Jr guys
    more responsibilites and as new projects come in everyone plays a part keeps
    the structure very well.
