  • Patent number: 11438381
    Abstract: For migrating data to a remote data repository based on the security protocol capabilities of the remote data repository, a storage module identifies a security profile of a file residing in an on-premise data repository, where the security profile comprises security protocol requirements, matches the identified security profile with an entry in a list of one or more remote data repository providers, each entry comprising a security protocol capability of a corresponding remote data repository provider, and migrates, in response to finding a match of the identified security profile and the identified security protocol capability, the file to the matched remote data repository provider.

  • Publication number: 20220276988
    Abstract: Provided are a computer program product, system, and method for replicating and migrating files to secondary storage sites. Files in a fileset at the primary storage site are migrated to a file container, wherein data for the files migrated to the file container is distributed among the secondary storage sites. File metadata for each of the migrated files is updated to include access information on the migrated file in the file container. Data for the migrated files is deleted in a local storage. The file metadata for the migrated files is replicated to the secondary storage sites over the network to store in filesets at the secondary storage sites without replicating file data for the migrated files to store in the filesets the secondary storage sites.

  • Publication number: 20220019553
    Abstract: One or more computer processors to receive an object to store in a cloud storage environment, wherein the cloud storage environment includes a default storage policy. The one or more processors determine whether the object includes a foreign policy as an attribute of metadata associated with the object. The one or more processors, responsive to determining the object includes the foreign policy as an attribute of the metadata associated with the object, determine whether the foreign policy includes storage rules that differ from the default storage policy of the cloud storage environment, and the one or more processors, responsive to determining the storage rules included in the foreign policy of the metadata of the object differ from the default storage policy of the cloud storage environment, store the object based on the storage rules of the foreign policy, and ignore the default storage policy of the cloud storage environment.

  • Patent number: 11188984
    Abstract: A method, computer program product, and system performing a method that includes a processor(s) obtaining a digital document defining insurance parameters for utilization by a user of a portion of computing resources selected from a group of computing resources comprising the shared computing environment. The processor(s) generates, based on the digital document, parameters defining the portion of the computing resources and risk management rules reflecting guaranteed thresholds for utilization and performance of the portion of the computing resources defined in the digital document. The processor(s) configures a controller in the shared computing environment, based on the parameters and the risk management rules and obtains a notification of a failure in the portion of the computing resources in violation of the risk management rules and details of the failure to determine the extent and impact of the failure. The processor(s) automatically generates a claim package and transmits it to the administrator.

  • Patent number: 10887416
    Abstract: A mechanism is provided in a data processing system comprising at least one processor and at least one memory, the at least one memory comprising instructions which are executed by the at least one processor and configure the processor to implement a proxy server for hybrid geo-dispersed erasure coding (EC). Responsive to receiving from an application server a request to write an object, the proxy server in a first storage site splits the object into a plurality of EC slices. The proxy server stores a first EC slice in a first storage device via a storage server local to the proxy server. The proxy server stores a plurality of remaining EC slices in a cache storage local to the proxy server. Responsive to determining that network access is available to disperse the plurality of slices among a plurality of geographically distributed storage sites, the proxy server copies the plurality of remaining EC slices to the plurality of geographically distributed storage sites using geo-dispersed erasure coding.
