Compuverde Assigned Three US Patents for Enhancements to Software-Defined Storage Infrastructure
Compuverde announces that the United States Patent Office has awarded the company three patents related to software-defined storage innovations. The three patents (numbers 8,850,019, 8,843,710, and 9,305,012) expand the patent family and solidify Compuverde's position as a provider of software-defined storage solutions.The patent family extends across all major global regions, including the U.S., Europe, China, Japan and Eurasia.
The three patents focus on:
- Reliable replication: A distributed storage system that uses multiple storage nodes, which ensures that data is sufficiently spread out to provide efficient and reliable replication of data in case of storage node malfunctions.
- Multiple storage nodes: A method for maintaining data in a storage system by using multiple storage nodes to monitor and detect conditions so that replication of data happens quickly, efficiently and in order of priority.
- Quicker retrieval: Creating a distributed directory structure for storage, that facilitates quicker data retrieval, no matter where files are in a system.
Stefan Bernbo, CEO and founder, Compuverde, said: "The current data explosion has put a strain on enterprise data centers. Our software-defined storage solutions are based on the principles of performance, redundancy and TCO so that organizations get the storage they need at a price they can afford. As the data landscape continues to grow, we will continue to innovate based on those goals."
