  • Patent number: 10897593
    Abstract: An approach, for storing video data in a plurality of tape media via a ring buffer. A tape data splitter receives video data stored in a ring buffer. The tape data splitter writes the video data to a current tape media. The tape data splitter detects an end of tape media event. The tape data splitter responds to the end of tape media event, by switching the current tape media to a next tape media. The tape data splitter selects a resume point for the video data stored in the ring buffer and writes to the next tape media, the video data stored in the ring buffer that is subsequent to the resume point.

  • Patent number: 10684789
    Abstract: In a hierarchical storage management system (HSM), a scheduled-recall request is associated with a start-time. Prior to the scheduled-recall request start-time, if a first recall request is directed to the same storage medium as is the scheduled-recall request, the method performs some or all of the scheduled-recall request, with low priority processing, during times that the storage drive (performing the first recall request) is otherwise idle. After the scheduled-recall request start-time, the priority of the scheduled-recall request is increased and data targeted by the scheduled-recall request, that had not already been recalled during the low priority processing, are subsequently processed with high priority.
