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 and operations. The method involves 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 includes one or more processors configured to detect failover events, determine standby nodes, initiate failover processes, obtain active node configuration information, request additional computing resources, initiate data protection services, inform standby nodes of the change, update the management database, and replicate changes. The system also involves restoring a failover management database, storing the management database in a backup format, replicating changes according to information management policies, continuously replicating changes to standby nodes, monitoring the operational state of the active storage manager node, checking for upgrades and updating software, detecting communication errors, and creating new standby nodes in response to errors.
