Application: Optimizing virtual storage system architectures (Patent ID: US20240103919A1)

The patent filed by Pure Storage Inc. describes a method for managing virtual storage systems by creating a system with a virtual drive layer and a backend storage layer. The virtual drive layer includes virtual drives and logic to manage I/O operations, while the backend storage layer consists of storage devices with performance specifications defined by a cloud storage service provider. The method involves adjusting components of the virtual storage system, such as storage type, drive count, and configuration, based on requirements and requests without affecting the backend storage layer.

The claims detail the steps involved in the method, including processing I/O operations using virtual drive components, adjusting components through virtual drive logic instead of a storage system controller, and caching data in local instance storage. The system and computer program product based on the method also include instructions for receiving I/O operations, adjusting components based on configuration requirements, and changing storage configurations without impacting the backend storage layer. Overall, the patent focuses on efficiently managing virtual storage systems by adjusting components to meet specific requirements and requests while optimizing performance.
