  • Patent number: 11449629
    Abstract: Appropriate management of transfer of data generated in real time from an area where handling of data is regulated to the outside is enabled. A storage computer manages transfer of data from a transfer source belonging to an environment where handling of data is regulated to an external transfer destination. Data to be transferred is sequential transfer data sequentially transferred to the outside when the data is not wholly present in the environment. The storage computer includes a memory storing information and CPU connected to the memory and capable of performing predetermined processing. Permissibility of transfer of the data to be transferred to a transfer destination is determined by the CPU based on: personal information included in a data source on which the data to be transferred is based; contents of processing performed on the data source; and an execution result of the processing on the data source.

  • Publication number: 20220197527
    Abstract: To attempt to reduce a processing load by making it unnecessary to perform a task of searching for similar data when a delta compression process is performed. A storage system has a deduplication function of performing deduplication on a plurality of duplicate pieces of the data and a delta compression function of storing differences between a plurality of similar pieces of the data. When a write request to update the stored data is received, in a case where the deduplication has been performed on the data before being updated according to the write request, and the data after being updated does not share duplicate data with second data, a processor of the storage system performs the delta compression of generating and storing a difference between the data before being updated and the data after being updated.
