For Computer Weekly, I am investigating this emerging technology.
The piece will cover:
- What is computational storage?
- What is the architecture/key features of computational storage?
- What use cases is it aimed at?
- What are the pros and cons for those that might deploy it?
- Who are the vendors and what products do they have?
I am looking for expert views – ideally independent — and real-world use cases or case studies. Deadline for leads: Wednesday 4th March, 1700 GMT. Drop me an emailif you can help.
For Computer Weekly, I am writing a short piece looking at the various tiers of solid-state storage.
What is on the market, how does each technology’s performance differ, and what are their applications? Why do businesses use tiered storage, and where does each solid state technology fit into tiering?
I will cover these storage types:
- Optane/3D Xpoint/Z-NAND
- TLC Flash
- QLC Flash
If you have market research or other information to share on these, the deadline to contact me — as ever by email — is 1700hrs, Friday 14th February.
I am researching an analysis into security breaches in the public sector. We are looking especially at globally significant incidents.
In the piece, we will examine the trend – how did 2019 compare with 2017 and 2018?
Are there any notable changes in geography, or in the type of breach?
Which organisations are being attacked, and is that changing?
What size of incidents are we seeing? Are they larger, or having a greater impact?
The piece will then look at the cost of public sector data breaches, and their impact. And we will ask if there are specific steps public sector IT and security leads should be taking to protect their assets.
The piece will appear in The Daily Swig. This earlier piece in the series, on healthcare, is a guide for what we are looking for.
