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 processing I/O operations, changing storage configurations, and modifying storage device types and counts.

The claims detail the steps involved in managing virtual storage systems, including receiving and processing I/O operations, adjusting components through virtual drive logic, and responding to storage configuration requirements. The method allows for changes in storage configurations without affecting the backend storage layer, enabling flexibility and optimization in managing virtual storage systems. Additionally, the patent covers a storage system and computer program product implementing the described method, providing a comprehensive approach to efficiently managing virtual storage systems.
