Database Backup Patents (Class 707/640)
  • Patent number: 11068437
    Abstract: Techniques are provided for using a sparse file to create a hot archive of a pluggable database of a container database. In an embodiment and while a source pluggable database is in service, a source database server creates a clone of the source pluggable database. Also while the source pluggable database is in service, the source database server creates an archive of the source pluggable database that is based on the clone. Eventually, a need arises to consume the archive. A target database server (which may also be the source database server) creates a target pluggable database based on the archive.

  • Patent number: 11023334
    Abstract: The data storage system according to certain aspects can implement table level database restore. Table level database restore may refer to restoring a database table and its related data without restoring the entire database. The data storage system may use table metadata index to implement table level restore. A table metadata index may be created for each table, e.g., during a backup of the database. The table metadata index for a table can include any type of information for restoring the table and its related data. Some examples of the type of information included in the table metadata index include the following: container for the table, table backup location, system data, table index, table relationships, etc. Table metadata index can make the restoring of tables fast and efficient by packaging information that can be used to restore a table and its related data in an easily accessible manner.

  • Patent number: 10789384
    Abstract: A differentially private system receives a request from a client to perform a query on data stored in a database. The differentially private system establishes a set of permissions of the client with respect to the data in the database. The differentially private system deconstructs the query into query components. The query components include at least one relation that identifies a dataset in the database and at least one expressions specifying an operation to be performed in the identified dataset. The differentially private system identifies permissions necessary to perform the specified operation on the identified dataset. The differentially private system determines whether the established permissions grants of the client include the identified permissions necessary to perform the specified operation on the identified dataset. The differentially private system selectively executes the query responsive to the determination.

  • Patent number: 10789018
    Abstract: A primary copy and one or more shadow copies of a logical volume are created and discovered by a host rescan performed when the logical volume is initially created. Data storage resources are allocated to the primary copy, but not to the shadow copy. The initial path state of the logical volume describes the path to the primary copy as active, and the path to the shadow copy as unavailable for accessing the logical volume. Movement of the logical volume to the storage appliance providing the shadow copy can be performed without an additional host rescan, by making the shadow copy the new primary copy, making the primary copy a new shadow copy, and updating the path state of the logical volume to indicate i) that the path to the new primary copy is active, and ii) that the path to the new shadow copy is unavailable.

  • Patent number: 10776329
    Abstract: The systems and methods provide for migrating such applications to cloud storage by automating a continuous replication of changes made to the DBMS from the DBMS to an associated cloud instance. For example, the systems and methods facilitate the migration of the DBMS via multiple processes performing in parallel—a process to create and provision a new machine instance (e.g., an EC2 instance), a process to clone and transfer parameters of the operating system/software of the DBMS, and a process that backs up and/or captures the application data of the DBMS.

  • Patent number: 10768848
    Abstract: A system for improving backup performance includes an interface, a processor, and a memory. The interface is to receive a volume identifier to backup. The processor is to determine allocation for data of a volume associated with the volume identifier in a plurality of storage tiers to improve backup processing, move data based at least in part on the allocation, and backup data of the volume. The memory is coupled to the processor and configured to provide the processor with instructions.

  • Patent number: 10769103
    Abstract: A first list is received including locations of blocks of a file system that changed between current and previous backups. A superblock of the file system is read to generate a second list including locations of metadata records representing file objects. The first and second lists are intersected to return a third list including locations listed in the first and second lists. The locations in the third list are changed metadata records. A metadata record as of the current backup and identified in the third list is read. A previous version of the metadata record as of the previous backup is read. The current and previous metadata record versions are compared to detect potential conditions occurring between the backups. Upon detection of a first type of condition, information about the condition is recorded. Upon detection of a second type of condition, information about the condition is not recorded.

  • Patent number: 10769033
    Abstract: A method and system for performing incremental backup of a network attached storage (NAS) device are described. A storage capture instance associated with a first time instance is received from a network attached storage device. At least a portion of metadata of tracked network packets associated with the network attached storage device is also received. At least one changed content item of the network attached storage device that has changed since the first time instance is identified by analyzing the at least the portion of the metadata of the tracked network packets received. An incremental backup of the network attached storage device is performed at a second time instance based at least in part on the at least one changed content item identified.

  • Patent number: 10754696
    Abstract: Embodiments are directed to a load balancer process for use in a deduplication backup process implemented in a cluster system that provides ideal placement of the Mtrees on the expanded capacity by monitoring the available capacity and providing recommendations on the best node to place newly created Mtrees. Continuous monitoring of the capacity and activity level of the nodes helps identify the appropriate node to place a new Mtree. The monitoring of existing node in the cluster and balancing capacity by recommending migration of files from heavily-utilized nodes to under-utilized nodes produces an overall increase in cluster performance.

  • Patent number: 10719407
    Abstract: Backing up availability group databases configured on multi-node virtual servers is described. A system identifies an availability group scheduled for backup. The system determines whether the availability group is configured on at least one virtual server in a cluster of nodes associated with the availability group. If the availability group is configured on at least one virtual server in the cluster of nodes, the system retrieves information from a server in the cluster of nodes. The system uses the retrieved information to identify a database replica that is preferred for backing up the availability group. The system identifies a virtual server, in the cluster of nodes, that is associated with the identified database replica. The system identifies a node for backing up the availability group by identifying an active node from the nodes in the identified virtual server. The system backs up the availability group via the identified node.
