Application: Techniques for upgrading and accessing metadata (Patent ID: US20240104114A1)

The patent filed by Rubrik Inc. describes methods, systems, and devices for data management. The data management system (DMS) receives requests to access metadata stored in a distributed metadata repository, translating the semantic format of the request to match the version of the repository. The DMS determines the current version of the metadata and accesses it based on the request and the version of the repository. The method involves upgrading metadata in the repository before upgrading applications or services that use the metadata, ensuring compatibility between the request and the repository version.

The patent also covers an apparatus for data management, including a processor, memory, and instructions to receive requests, translate semantic formats, determine the current version of metadata, and access the metadata in the distributed repository. Additionally, a non-transitory computer-readable medium stores code for data management, allowing for the reception of requests, translation of semantic formats, determination of metadata versions, and access to metadata in the repository. These methods and systems streamline data access and management processes by ensuring compatibility between requests and metadata repository versions, ultimately enhancing data management efficiency and effectiveness.
