  • Patent number: 9712609
    Abstract: An evaluation value DS for evaluating responsiveness of a first node when no loads are being transferred, an evaluation value Dn for evaluating responsiveness of a path P connecting between the first and second nodes assuming that loads are being transferred, and an evaluation value Dr for evaluating responsiveness of the second node N2 assuming that the second node has received a load from the first node are calculated. Whether or not to transfer the load is determined depending upon comparison results of magnitude of DS and a sum of Dr+Dn.

  • Patent number: 9609060
    Abstract: Provided a plurality of data nodes connected in a network, each including a data storage unit. The data node of data replication destination temporarily stores data to be updated in an intermediate data structure, and converts asynchronously with respect to the update request to a target data structure to store the converted data in the data storage unit. Based on access history information stored in an access history recording unit, trigger information, concerning timing for execution of conversion to the target data structure performed asynchronously by the data node is changed.

  • Patent number: 8635402
    Abstract: A system has a data structure in which a value can be obtained from a key. In a write access, a first pair <Key,Hash(Value)> and a second pair <Hash(Value),Value> are stored respectively in a volatile storage device. The first pair <Key,Hash(Value)> is saved in a nonvolatile storage device before returning a response, and the second pair <Hash(Value),Value> is saved in the first storage device at any time with the second pair saved in the volatile storage device. In a read access in which a value is obtained from a key, it is determined that data is not stored normally if the second pair is not found in processing in which after obtaining the hash value of the value from the first pair, the second pair is read.

  • Patent number: 8595272
    Abstract: A management policy is given to a predetermined storage area by an administrator or a predetermined end user of end users as users of a plurality of client terminals. At this time, a file server generates a setting file in which the management policy is written, to set in a directory corresponding to the predetermined storage area. A write instruction (change data) is given by the administrator or the predetermined end user. The file server changes the management policy based on the change data.

  • Publication number: 20130046845
    Abstract: A control method for a storage system, whereby a plurality of storage nodes included in the storage system are grouped into a first group composed of storage nodes with a network distance in the storage system within a predetermined distance range, and second groups composed of storage nodes that share position information for the storage nodes that store data. A logical spatial identifier that identifies the second groups is allocated for each of the second groups, to calculate a logical spatial position using a data identifier as an input value for a distributed function, and store data corresponding to the data identifier in the storage node that belongs the second group to which the identifier corresponding to the calculated position is allocated.

  • Patent number: 8346826
    Abstract: A system which includes at least one client, a plurality of file servers, each having a file system, and a switch logically arranged between the client and the plurality of file servers to provide file access services which virtually render the plurality of file systems accessible as a single file system, termed a ‘pseudo file system’, when viewed from the terminal. The switch distributes a command that starts generation of snapshots to the plurality of file servers, which file servers formulate respective snapshots responsive to the command that starts formation of the snapshots. The switch sets the plurality of snapshots, generated by the plurality of file servers, so as to be associated with the file system structure of the virtual file system at the time of formation of the snapshots.
