Application: Storage tiering for computing system snapshots (Patent ID: US20230401176A1)

The patent filed by Rubrik Inc. describes a data management system that enables the tiering of snapshots on cloud environments. The system involves transmitting signaling to instruct a cloud environment to capture and store snapshots in different types of cloud storage based on specified thresholds. For instance, when a snapshot has been stored for a duration that meets an archival threshold, the system triggers the storage of the snapshot in a second type of cloud storage with longer access latency.

The method outlined in the patent involves transmitting signaling to capture and store snapshots in different cloud storage types based on specified thresholds. This includes creating fingerprint files, comparing data blocks between snapshots, and instructing the deletion of snapshots after a retention duration. The system also allows for the recovery of data blocks in their original format and the compression of data blocks for storage in the second type of cloud storage. Additionally, the patent covers the generation of metadata associated with snapshots to facilitate storage location tracking and management based on the defined thresholds and service level agreements.
