Application: Database as a service on cloud (Patent ID: US20230418834A1)

The patent filed by Nutanix Inc. describes a database management system that includes a control plane connected to multiple database servers via a communication channel and a plurality of data streams. The control plane executes services and communicates with the database servers using a single communication channel and multiple data streams, allowing for efficient handling of requests and responses.

The system's processor can receive requests from database servers, identify services to handle the requests, and transmit responses back to the servers using different data streams. The services provided include provisioning, cloning, and snapshot capturing operations for databases. Each database server has an agent running on it, facilitating communication with the control plane. The system can also register new database servers, communicate with servers across different cloud providers using a single communication channel, and provision databases across different regions within a cloud account. Overall, the system's design allows for efficient and flexible management of databases in a distributed environment.
