5 Sep 2019 Campbell - WekaIO, an innovation expert in high-performance, scalable file storage for data intensive applications, has been assigned patents (10268378) for "congestion mitigation in a distributed storage system", (10394490) for "flash registry with write leveling", and (10402093) for "congestion mitigation in a multi-tiered distributed storage system", and has forty-one more patents pending.

The abstract of the patent (10268378) published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: A system comprises a plurality of computing devices that are communicatively coupled via a network and have a file system distributed among them and comprises one or more file system request buffers residing on one or more of the plurality of computing devices. File system choking management circuitry that resides on one or more of the plurality of computing devices is operable to separately control: a first rate at which a first type of file system requests - e.g., one of data requests, data read requests, data write requests, metadata requests, metadata read requests, and metadata write requests - are fetched from the one or more buffers, and a second rate at which a second type of file system requests - e.g., another of data requests, data read requests, data write requests, metadata requests, metadata read requests, and metadata write requests - are fetched from the one or more buffers.

The patent (10268378) application was filed on May 10, 2018 (15/976467).

The abstract of the patent (10394490) published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: A plurality of computing devices are communicatively coupled to each other via a network, and each of the plurality of computing devices is operably coupled to one or more of a plurality of storage devices. A plurality of failure resilient address spaces are distributed across the plurality of storage devices such that each of the plurality of failure resilient address spaces spans a plurality of the storage devices. Each computing device is operable to maintain a two-level registry that records changes in the memory. When data is read from memory, recent changes to the data may be applied according to one or more corresponding registry blocks. Thus, the two-level registry enables the plurality of computing devices to postpone and/or consolidate writes to memory - e.g., non-volatile flash drives.

The patent (10394490) application was filed on October 23, 2017 (15/791188).

The abstract of the patent (10402093) published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: A distributed electronic storage system (DESS) comprises congestion management circuitry and data migration circuitry. The congestion management circuitry is operable to determine an amount of congestion in the DESS. The data migration circuitry is operable to control migration of data stored in a first tier of storage to a second tier of storage based on the amount of congestion in the DESS, characteristics of the data, and characteristics of the first tier of storage.

The patent (10402093) application was filed on April 12, 2017 (15/485290).
