I am currently researching the following articles for Computer Weekly.
How enterprise backup products will change in the next decade
What are the key areas of functionality in enterprise backup that we are likely to see in the coming decade?
This piece will look at developments in automation, cloud, containers, the edge and how backup technologies are adapting — or will need to adapt — to encompass them. But I am open to other suggestions around emerging backup technologies, beyond those listed above.

Ransomware, storage and backup: Techniques and limits
This article will explain the technologies and techniques in storage and backup, that are available to defend against and recover from ransomware.
But it will also spell out the limits of the abilities of storage and backup against a threat that is possibly best countered elsewhere.
This is a slightly longer article, so I also aim to cover:
- What is the mechanism of a ransomware attack?
- What are the areas of storage and backup that a ransomware attack may impact?
- What are the key techniques and technologies in storage and backup that can help to defend against or recover from a ransomware attack?
- What are the limits of storage and backup technologies and techniques when it comes to dealing with ransomware?
Deadline for leads: Monday 24th October
For either of these articles, please contact me by email in the first instance.
