  • Patent number: 11461200
    Abstract: Provided is a method, computer program product, and system for performing automated failover and/or failback recovery analysis using predictive analytics. A processor may monitor a disaster recovery (DR) life cycle during a DR scenario. The processor may monitor failover process activities in a DR production environment over a predetermined time period. Based on data collected during monitoring of the DR life cycle and the failover process activities in the DR production environment over the predetermined time period, the processor may generate, using machine learning, a failback blueprint plan to move production to a new production environment.

  • Patent number: 11321797
    Abstract: A user can wear a device which emits a visual and/or audible output. The output changes over time. A system is capable of predicting the output. Thus, the system can analyze a video and determine, based on observed output of the device, whether the video has been modified. The output can be particularly difficult for humans to modify, detect, understand, or recreate, further impeding attempts to disguise edits to the video.

  • Patent number: 11310206
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and computer program products providing network security leveraging analytics and physical separation between computer systems and a network to prevent threats from infecting network devices. A specialized pluggable dongle like security device is inserted between ports of computer system(s) connecting to the network and port(s) of network hardware facilitating connections between the computer system and computer network. The security device uses a combination of onboard analytics and cloud-based analytic services to detect incoming threats from network traffic and whether to allow network traffic to pass through the security device and/or prevent network traffic from entering the computer system.

  • Publication number: 20220083685
    Abstract: Technology for storing legal hold data in the cloud (for example, in containers), where the source of the data stored in the cloud is independent backup copy(ies) that are maintained by an enterprise subject to a legal hold order. Changing the legal hold data as it is stored in the set of backup copy(ies) in a manner will not change the legal hold data as it is stored in the cloud. Mechanism may also be provided for auditing chain of custody and authenticating parties who request legal hold data to be delivered from cloud storage.

  • Patent number: 11194628
    Abstract: An approach is provided for providing disaster recovery, active/active and active/standby workload allocation in a networked computing environment according to aspects of the present invention. Risk factor data is obtained for each component of a plurality of components in a global data center. A resiliency score is calculated for each component of the plurality of components based on a set of risk factors that are applicable to the component gathered from the risk factor data. A set of group resiliency scores are computed by aggregating the resiliency scores for each of the plurality of components included in a component group. In response to a determination that an application's performance can be improved, a datacenter is selected for failover protection based on a group resiliency score corresponding to the datacenter. Moreover, the overall enterprise resiliency score can be improved by moving an application between sites in the enterprise.

  • Publication number: 20210352085
    Abstract: A method, system, and program product for controlling power associated with connectivity between devices is provided. The method includes scheduling a copy function associated with copying data from a production hardware device to a secure hardware device at a specified time period. A first hardware connection between the production hardware device and a production network associated with the production hardware device is disabled during the specified time period and a second hardware connection between the production hardware device and the secure hardware device is enabled. A subsequent copy function is enabled for copying the data from the production hardware device to the secure hardware device. The second hardware connection between the production hardware device and the secure hardware device is disabled after the copy function has completed. In response, the first hardware connection between the production hardware device and the production network is enabled.

  • Publication number: 20210344644
    Abstract: An AI firewall engine dynamically manages firewall ports of an enterprise network to increase security. The AI firewall engine may begin with a baseline port profile configuration and then add firewall rules derived from natural language processing and machine learning from vendor recommended port requirements for an application. The AI firewall engine builds a dynamic port profile with rules that are applied to the firewalls. The AI firewall engine may then monitor system changes and dynamically updates the port profile and configurations on the firewalls.

  • Publication number: 20210336889
    Abstract: A method for dynamically modifying quality-of-service tags for multiple data flows is disclosed. In one embodiment, such a method determines current bandwidth utilization for each of multiple data flows passing through a network, and determines acceptable bandwidth utilization for each of the multiple data flows. The method receives external information that, based on one or more rules, is used to adjust quality of service priorities for one or more of the data flows. Based on the external information, the method dynamically adjusts quality-of-service tags for data packets associated with the data flows, such that current bandwidth utilization is altered for at least one data flow of the multiple data flows without violating acceptable bandwidth utilization for each of the multiple data flows. A corresponding system and computer program product are also disclosed.

  • Patent number: 10997015
    Abstract: A machine-learning mechanism of a disaster-avoidance system trains a knowledgebase to associate characteristics of a data-center component with corresponding degrees of vulnerability to failure and with remedial steps that may be undertaken to avoid failure or to reduce adverse effects of a failure. This training is performed as a function of inferences derived from historical records and from extrinsic information sources. The historical records identify past failures of similar components, component characteristics associated with past failures, and results of remedial procedures undertaken in response to past failures or to previous occurrences of the characteristics. The extrinsic sources identify the current existence of external conditions known to be associated with past failures.
