  • Patent number: 11126507
    Abstract: A production host includes a persistent storage for storing backup policies and a production agent that obtains a backup generation request for a virtual machine of the virtual machines; in response to the backup generation request, performs a continuity chain verification of a continuity chain associated with the virtual machine to identify a continuity state of backups associated with the virtual machine; makes a first determination, based on the continuity state of the backups associated with the virtual machine, that the backups associated with the virtual machine are in a remediable state; and, in response to the first determination, performs a remediation of the continuity chain to change the backups associated with the virtual machine to be in a continuous state; and generates a backup of the virtual machine using the backup policies while the continuity state of the backups associated with the virtual machine are in the continuous state.

  • Patent number: 11106523
    Abstract: A method and system for intelligently resolving failures recurring in information technology (IT) environments. Specifically, the method and system disclosed herein may be directed to the resolution of persistently-occurring failures observed in data backup and/or data recovery operations. Further, resolution of any given persistently-occurring failure may entail the identification of zero, one, or more solutions (e.g., patches and/or other instructions) based on the analyses of failure-related information and host-related configuration information using machine learning and/or artificial intelligence paradigms. In cases where zero solutions are identified, the conventional and manual investigative route by way of support ticketing may be pursued.

  • Patent number: 11106544
    Abstract: A remote agent for providing data protection services includes persistent storage and a backup manager. The persistent storage stores lifecycle policies. The backup manager updates an asset catalog using an asset map associated with a virtual machine; generates a lifecycle policy of the lifecycle policies using the asset catalog; and generates a backup for the virtual machine using the lifecycle policy. The lifecycle policy prioritizes generating the backup for the virtual machine over generating a second backup for a second virtual machine.

  • Patent number: 11080146
    Abstract: Systems, devices, and methods for reducing the impact of temporary unavailability of storages in a backup storage system. The system may store different types of backups depending on the availability storages. The first type of backup, which may rely on a previous backup stored in a first storage that is available for restoration purposes, may be stored on the first storage. When the first storage becomes temporarily unavailable, a second type of backup may be stored in a second storage that is available that requires a previous backup stored in the temporarily unavailable first storage for restoration purposes. The second type of backup may be chained to the previous backup stored in the temporarily unavailable storage. The second type of backup may be converted to the first type of backup when the first storage becomes available again in a computationally efficient manner.

  • Patent number: 11061732
    Abstract: A remote agent, for providing data protection services to virtual machines, includes persistent storage and a backup manager. The persistent storage is for storing a resource allocation calendar and lifecycle policies associated with the virtual machines. The backup manager obtains a virtual machine data package from a virtual machine of the virtual machines; identifies a computational load change point based on the lifecycle policies; predicts a magnitude of a computational load during a period of time demarcated by the computational load change point using, at least in part, the virtual machine data package; updates the resource allocation calendar to obtain an updated resource allocation calendar, the updating is based on: the identified computational load change point, and the magnitude of the computational load during the period of time; and generates a backup for the virtual machine using the updated resource allocation calendar.

  • Publication number: 20210182153
    Abstract: A method for managing a persistent storage system includes obtaining, by a first node in a node cluster, a write request, wherein the node cluster comprises the first node and a second node, processing the write request, storing data associated with the write request in a persistent storage system, updating a block-based change list based on the storing, making a first determination that a synchronization schedule is triggered, and in response to the first determination: initiating a block-based change list synchronization to the second node.

  • Publication number: 20210133338
    Abstract: A backup manager for providing backup services includes persistent storage and a backup orchestrator. The persistent storage includes protection policies. The backup orchestrator generates a backup for a client based on the protection policies. The backup orchestrator generates an index for the backup. The index specifies a sensitivity level of each portion of the backup. The backup orchestrator stores portions of the backup in regions of a container that correspond to the sensitivity level of the respective portion of the backup. The backup orchestrator stores the container in backup storage.

  • Publication number: 20210133354
    Abstract: A backup storage for providing backup services includes storage and a compliance manager. The storage includes backups. The compliance manager obtains a compliance request for data; makes a determination, in response to obtaining the compliance request, that the data is stored as part of a backup of the backups; in response to making the determination: deletes linking data that associates a portion of a compliance sensitive data portion stored in backup metadata of the backup with a portion of modified backup data of the backup to make the linking data unavailable; and removes the modified backup data using garbage collection.

  • Patent number: 10936216
    Abstract: A method and system for storage exhaustion estimation. Specifically, the method and system disclosed herein entail deriving a timeline for the depletion of available storage capacity on a backup storage array based on the data backup dynamics of various user clients. The timeline may deduce storage capacity availability in terms of future successful backup cycles, which may serve to address critical issues involving the administration of the backup storage array.
