  • Patent number: 10956442
    Abstract: Generally described, one or more aspects of the present application correspond to techniques for new block store volumes of data from object storage snapshots of an origin volume by creating an intermediary “acceleration pool” of source volumes reserved for supporting the new volume creation process. The source volumes may be prevented from supporting user I/O or computing instances in order to reserve their bandwidth for the transfer of data to the new volumes. In addition, the source volumes can be stored on block store servers to increase the speed with which their data can be transferred to the new volumes. The acceleration pool can be partitioned among users accessing the pool in order to maintain availability even when some users heavily utilize the acceleration pool, with particular source volumes intelligently selected from among a user's partition in order to optimize the speed at which the new volumes are created.

  • Patent number: 10936591
    Abstract: Systems and methods are described that facilitate idempotent execution of commands generated by a client for execution by a database server. Each command transmitted to the server includes a command ID generated by the client. The server attempts to execute each command and subsequently stores the command ID associated therewith in a repository along with an indication of whether the command executed successfully. When a new command is received by the server, it determines if the command ID associated therewith has already been stored in the repository. If the command ID associated with the new command has not already been stored in the repository, then the server executes the new command. If the command ID associated with the new command has already been stored in the repository and a previously-received command associated with the command ID has been executed successfully, then the server will not execute the new command.

    Abstract: A system may include a cloud-based virtual machine connected to multiple virtual hard drives and associated with a guest of a first datacenter. A recovery management server may, substantially simultaneously for each virtual hard drive, create an Infrastructure-as-a-Service snapshot of data on the virtual hard drive without utilizing an agent of the virtual machine. The recovery management server may also directly replicate the snapshot of data for each virtual hard drive at a second datacenter, which may be geographically remote from the first datacenter, without re-creating Input Output (“IO”) operations for each virtual hard drive via a log file. Upon an indication of failure of the first datacenter, the recovery management server may arrange to have each virtual hard drive's replicated snapshot of data be consumed by a recovery service for the guest at the second datacenter.

  • Patent number: 10789226
    Abstract: This application generally relates to data processing methods and apparatus. One data processing method disclosed herein comprises: creating a Writable Snapshot based on data modification; creating a plurality of Read-Only (“RO”) Snapshots by cloning the Writable Snapshot at distinct predetermined creation-times; receiving a data inquiry request; and conducting the data inquiry through indexing, in a RO Snapshot with a latest creation-time. This approach achieves separation of data modification and data inquiry, enabling efficient real-time updating. Further, by fast indexing and invert indexing, inquiry efficiency is further improved. Additionally, data is stored in data columns, wherein each column may be divided into multiple data blocks according to a fixed block size, and each data block has a same length.

  • Patent number: 10776050
    Abstract: Systems and methods are provided that may be implemented to prevent unexpected and/or uncontrollable system reboots that occur due to write filter overlay and/or RAM disk depletion within system memory of an information handling system by monitoring time-based write filter memory overlay and/or RAM disk usage. This information may be used to predict when the write filter memory overlay and/or RAM disk will fill up with data, and/or to take actions to prevent write filter memory overlay and/or RAM disk usage from reaching a threshold percentage or fractional utilization value that will trigger a system reboot. Those applications and/or data files that are primarily responsible for filling the memory of a write filter overlay may also be identified and stopped or restarted to prevent automatic system reboot due to write filter memory overlay usage.
