Information Technology Newsweekly |

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Information Technology Newsweekly -- From Washington, D.C., VerticalNews journalists report that a patent application by the inventors Shamis, Alex (Redmond, WA); Nightingale, Edmund (Redmond, WA); Jamsandekar, Mugdha (Redmond, WA); Edara, Pavan (Redmond, WA), filed on , was made available online on .

No assignee for this patent application has been made.

News editors obtained the following quote from the background information supplied by the inventors: "In computing systems with data storage needs, storage systems can be implemented to store data. Data can be written to in various formats in storage systems. In some cases, storage systems are associated with data stores, which can be implemented using nonvolatile memory, such as solid state storage devices, or SSD devices. Requests to read or write data can be received by a storage system. In some cases, storage systems are associated with devices that demonstrate relatively higher latency, such as longer delays to read information written or being written to the system, or relatively higher write amplification, for example writing more instances of data than necessary or writing multiples of data."

As a supplement to the background information on this patent application, VerticalNews correspondents also obtained the inventors' summary information for this patent application: "This Summary is provided to introduce a selection of concepts in a simplified form that are further described below in the Detailed Description. This Summary is not intended to identify key features or essential features of the claimed subject matter, nor is it intended to be used as an aid in determining the scope of the claimed subject matter.



"As described in connection with certain aspects below, multi-tiered storage systems are provided, such as a storage system including multiple, logical data storage levels. Aspects include generating data stores in storage systems, for example a log store, a hash store and a journal, along with a manager, in some cases. APIs can be publicly-exposed to allow reads or appends to a storage system.
