  • Publication number: 20220113878
    Abstract: One example method includes a splitter for data protection operations including replication operations. The splitter is located on or integrated into a smart network interface card and operates in two modes. The splitter is controlled by a replication controller. In one mode, the control path and the data path both go to the replication controller. In another mode, the data path is directly from the splitter to one or more targets without passing through the replication controller.

  • Publication number: 20220083251
    Abstract: Data protection operations including recovery operations are disclosed. A recovery operation is performed by downloading the backup to be recovered from multiple identical copies of the backup. Based on factors such as throughput, an optimal amount of data can be downloaded from each of the multiple copies. The portions downloaded from the multiple copies are rebuild or reassembled once downloaded. The assembled backup is then presented to a target for recovery.

  • Patent number: 11272006
    Abstract: Described is a system for intelligently distributing the retrieval of recovery data amongst peer-based and cloud-based storage sources. The system may leverage a peer network by performing a recovery from a combination of sources including peer devices and a cloud-based storage by considering a multitude of factors. For example, the system may consider retrieval information (e.g. availability, performance metrics, retrieval costs, etc.) associated with each of the potential sources in combination with target information (e.g. recovery objectives, file recovery priorities, etc.) to create an ordering preference (e.g. ranking) for sources from which to retrieve recovery data. The system may rank the sources by determining a specialized recovery score for each source thereby allowing the intelligent retrieval of recovery data.

  • Publication number: 20220043926
    Abstract: A request is received from a client seeking to access files stored at a backup server. A first tree is received for the request. The first tree represents hashes of files stored at the client. A second tree is generated representing hashes of the files stored at the backup server. The first and second trees are compared to assess a degree of similarity between the files stored at the client and the files stored at the backup server. The user is denied access to the files stored at the backup server when the degree of similarity is below a threshold.
