  • Patent number: 10176242
    Abstract: A remote distributed data store may be configured to process data updates received through invocation of a common API with reference to a common schema. A local data store may also be configured to process updates through the common API with reference to the common schema. Updates to the local data store may be mapped from the local data store schema to the common schema, and applied to the distributed data store. Updates to the distributed data store may be mapped from the common schema to the local data store schema. User identity may be verified to limit data synchronization to authorized users.

  • Patent number: 10146833
    Abstract: A fleet of query accelerator nodes is established for a data store. A particular node determines a write throughput limit for back-end writes from the fleet to the data store. A pool of write-back threads is established at the node. When a write request is received at the node, an entry is added to a selected partition of a write-back journal, and a write completion response is provided to the requester without applying the write to the data store. A write-back thread from the pool eventually schedules the back-end write.

  • Publication number: 20180322149
    Abstract: A configuration manager of a storage service receives a set of service requirements, comprising one or more of: a performance requirement for one or more types of storage operations, or an access interface type requirement Based on the service requirements, a candidate storage configuration that includes one or more data store instances and a first log-based transaction manager is generated. Subsequent to an approval of the first storage configuration by a client, the establishment of the data store instances and the log-based transaction manager is initiated.

  • Publication number: 20180047002
    Abstract: Data stores that are to be configured as members of a storage group on behalf of a client are identified. The client indicates one or more types of cross-data-store operations to be performed. A transaction manager that makes acceptance decisions for write requests directed to the members based at least partly on contents of a log is instantiated, and respective write transformers are set up for at least some of the types of cross-data-store operations. During a particular time period, the workload at the storage group is monitored, and the number and types of cross-data-store operations is determined. The results of the monitoring are used to determine a billing amount for the client based on a selected pricing policy.

  • Publication number: 20160086260
    Abstract: Based at least in part on an optimization goal determined for a storage group comprising a plurality of data stores for which writes requests are coordinated by a log-based transaction manager, one or more lifecycle transitions are identified for data objects stored in a first data store. In accordance with a first lifecycle transition, a data object is to be transferred from the first data store to a second data store based at least in part on a duration for which the data object has been resident at the first data store. A transition agent is assigned by a configuration manager to implement the first lifecycle transition.

  • Patent number: 9235609
    Abstract: A local data store may also be configured to process updates using a common API with reference to a common schema. The common API and common schema may also be employed by hosted applications utilizing a remote distributed data store. Behavior of the remote distributed data store may be emulated by the local data store. Behaviors of the distributed data store that may be simulated include eventual consistency, provisioned throughput and latency based on horizontal partitioning.

  • Patent number: 7783832
    Abstract: A fault-tolerant and efficient way of deducing a set of inconsistent stripes for a network RAID protocol, wherein clients forward input/output (I/O) to a particular controller device called the coordinator, which executes RAID logic and which sends out device IOs to the relevant storage devices. If the coordinator fails then a new coordinator reconstructs its state from the storage devices.

  • Patent number: 7694082
    Abstract: A resource management system uses a virtual resource pool distributed across a set of storage devices to manage resources in a distributed storage system. The storage devices dedicate a resource in an allocation pool available to the virtual resource pool. The virtual resource pool is a virtual storage server in which an application receives at least a predetermined amount of storage capacity, a predetermined level of performance, or a predetermined reliability, represented by tokens. A virtual resource pool manager gives the tokens to an application. The application transmits the tokens along with the commands to the storage device. The token represents a right to consume up to some limit of resources on a specific storage device in a computing session. The storage device locally tracks resource consumption through the token.

  • Publication number: 20080148270
    Abstract: A method for storage provisioning planning including integrating capacity and provisioning planning operations. Afterwards, the method proceeds by switching via policy between integrated capacity and provisioning planning operations. The method further includes constructing an end-to-end resource model and selecting a plurality of pools based on the end-to-end resource model. Subsequently, the method includes filtering via policy between a plurality of heterogeneous controllers having resource graphs. The resource graphs contain various levels of detail. The resource graphs having hosts, switches, and storage controllers are dynamically pruned, such pruning being predicated upon the monitored performance characteristics.

  • Patent number: 7240155
    Abstract: A client node of a distributed storage system adaptive determines on an operation-by-operation basis whether to process a network-RAID IO operation (IO request) locally at the client node or to forward the IO request to a storage server of the system for processing. The client node determines to process the requested network-RAID operation at the client node when a local estimator for a type of the requested network-RAID operation is less than a central estimator for the type of the requested network-RAID operation. Otherwise, the client node determines to process the requested network-RAID operation at a storage server when the local estimator for the type of the requested network-RAID operation is greater than the central estimator for the type of the requested network-RAID operation.
