My next article for Computer Weekly will be on “Scale-out NAS in the age of cloud”. The outline for the piece is below.
Scale out NAS is a very important storage technology for those that want to store large amounts of file and unstructured data.
But in recent years it has had to fight off other methods of storing large amounts of unstructured data, namely on-premises object storage and the rise of the cloud providers and their (often object storage-based) storage offerings.
So, who are the key scale-out NAS providers now? What do they offer in terms of products? And how are they meeting the challenge of the cloud?
If you or your client has expertise in this area, please contact me by email in the first instance. The deadline for pitches and initial input is Monday, 25 March.
