I am writing two articles for Computer Weekly’s storage section, one on storage and data compliance for the enterprise, and the other on the growing field of high-performance object storage.
This piece will look at the top 5 UK compliance concerns in 2020.
What are the five key laws/regulations that must be adhered to by UK organisations in 2020, including both current and upcoming legislation. For each we will look at the implications of the law/reg for storage, backup, and archiving.
This could, for example, include legal search and e-discovery, or the Right to be Forgotten under GDPR.
We will also look at how the cloud fits in.
High performance object storage
Object storage has been known as a good way of storing lots of unstructured data, but with less emphasis on performance.
But AI and analytics workloads are prompting storage architects to look at performance too. The feature will cover:
- Where object storage is heading in performance terms and what’s driving it.
- Which performance metrics matter
- How have object storage vendors improved performance?
- Who are the key object storage vendors that are tackling the challenge of better performance and what do they offer?
The deadline for leads for both articles is Friday 20th March, please contact me by email if you can help.
