Nutanix had one patents in internet of things during Q1 2024. The systems described in the patents filed by Nutanix Inc in Q1 2024 focus on enabling share-level disaster recovery for virtualized file servers. This includes the ability to migrate snapshots for self-service recovery (SSR) in addition to replication snapshots to a disaster recovery location. The disaster recovery location receives a replication of a file system share, along with additional snapshots taken since the previous replication. These additional snapshots may include SSR snapshots, which can be identified based on associated tags and extracted for use at the disaster recovery location.

Application: Self-service restore (SSR) snapshot replication with share-level file system disaster recovery on virtualized file servers (Patent ID: US20240045774A1)

The patent filed by Nutanix Inc. describes systems and methods for share-level disaster recovery on virtualized file servers by enabling additional snapshots, including self-service recovery (SSR) snapshot migration, in addition to replication snapshot migration to a disaster recovery location. The disaster recovery location receives a replication of a share of a file system, including additional snapshots taken since a previous replication snapshot. These additional snapshots, including SSR snapshots, are identifiable based on tags associated with the process used to create them at the primary location, and can be extracted for use at the disaster recovery location.

The patent claims detail the implementation of these systems and methods, including the generation and extraction of replication snapshots and additional snapshots at primary and disaster recovery locations. The use of self-service restore processes, retention policies, and identification tags are highlighted, along with the configuration of virtualized computing instances and host machines within the file server system. The patent emphasizes the ability to manage access requests for storage items, store snapshots in storage pools, and facilitate disaster recovery through the extraction and utilization of SSR snapshots at the secondary file server.
