I am researching two features for Computer Weekly, and am keen to have input from analysts and other industry experts.
The first is on file, block and object in the cloud and looks at the main storage offerings from AWS, Azure and Google Cloud Platform, including versions, performance, target applications and compatibility with on-premises storage.
The second looks at cloud providers on-site hardware offerings. Again, this is focused on AWS, Azure and GCP. Why are cloud providers offering on-site hardware, and what functions does it fulfil? Although some of these devices are multi-function, our focus is on their use for data storage.
The deadline for submissions is 1700 BST, Friday 15 May; please contact me by email if you can help.
