Application: Efficient failover of storage manager in virtualized environments (Patent ID: US20240103987A1)

The patent filed by CommVault Systems Inc. describes an efficient failover process and system in a virtualized environment that reduces costs and resources associated with maintaining live stand-by failover scheduling and maintenance systems. The system uses incremental backup data to maintain passive virtualized computing platforms ready to take over tasks and operations of a lost storage manager. During a failover, a passive virtual node initiates the process by restoring a secondary copy of the lost storage manager, scaling up computing resources, and continuing scheduled tasks.

The computer-implemented method and system for performing a failover process in a virtualized cloud environment involve detecting a failover event, determining a standby node, initiating the failover process, obtaining active node configuration information, requesting additional computing resources, initiating data protection services, updating the management database, and replicating changes across standby nodes. The system continuously replicates changes, monitors the operational state of the active storage manager node, checks for upgrades, and detects communication errors with standby nodes, initiating routines to create new standby nodes when necessary. The active node configuration information can be stored within the standby node or obtained from a virtual cloud datastore, and changes to the management database are replicated based on preferences in an information management policy.
