For Computer Weekly I am investigating the greatest pitfalls for deploying on-premises storage hardware.
The piece can cover flash storage, storage arrays, hyper-converged, or software-defined storage but it needs to be in house, not cloud based.
I am looking for examples from CIOs and IT directors and experienced analysts and consultants – but not vendors.
If you would like to comment for the article please email me with a brief description of your (or your client’s) credentials in this area, and I will reply with some questions.
The deadline for initial approaches is September 9th.
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.
