This article, for Computer Weekly, will be an explainer on on-premises object storage. It will set out the key differences between object and block and file, and their pros and cons.
The article will ask:
- What is object storage?
- What are its key use cases?
- What workloads need object storage?
The second half of the article will be a product section giving a vendor-by-vendor run-down on whether they provide hardware or software products, their architecture, scaling, speeds and feeds, data protection methods and other notable features.
There will also be a box out on cloud-based object storage.
Please submit background information such as white papers and case studies, product information, and suggested interviewees/experts, by 0900hrs Friday 19th July by by email in the first instance.
Please do not submit pre-written commentary or quotes.
