Application: Application level to share level replication policy transition for file server disaster recovery systems (Patent ID: US20240070032A1)

The patent filed by Nutanix Inc. describes a system that allows users to switch from an application level disaster recovery system to a share level disaster recovery system without the need to take a new base snapshot. Instead, the existing base snapshot from the application level replication can be utilized for share level replication, establishing an initial set of common share snapshots for ongoing protection on a share level basis. The system involves replicating snapshots of a file server to a disaster recovery location based on an application level replication policy and updating the recovery policy at the file server for subsequent replication on a share level.

Furthermore, the patent includes claims for a non-transitory computer-readable medium with executable instructions to perform operations related to replicating snapshots, updating recovery policies, and managing access requests for storage items of the file system. It also outlines a method for hosting a file server with a protection domain, changing to a data protection policy specific to a share, and replicating snapshots of the share accordingly. Additionally, the system described in the patent involves a primary file server, secondary file server, and a user interface to facilitate the transition from a file server level protection domain to a share level data protection policy, allowing for different data protection policies for various shares of the file system hosted by the primary file server.
