Application: Optimizing availability of mediator services for storage systems (Patent ID: US20230396565A1)

The patent filed by Pure Storage Inc. describes a storage system that can switch mediators synchronously replicating data. The system determines when the availability of a first mediator service decreases to a particular level and then switches to a second mediator service external to the storage systems. The method involves selecting the second mediator service based on factors like geographic proximity, reliability, network response time, and more. The decrease in availability can be due to communication response time degradation or lack of response, and scheduled downtime for the first mediator service is also considered.

The patent covers a method, storage system, and apparatus for implementing the switching of mediators in a storage system. It involves determining the decrease in availability of a mediator service and switching to another service based on specific criteria. The system can select from a list of mediator services based on factors like geographic proximity, network layout, and power grid information. The apparatus described in the patent can carry out the steps of determining availability and switching between mediator services, ensuring efficient and reliable data replication within storage systems.
