Recovery of virtual machine using distributed filesystem
Panzura, Inc., Campbell, CA, has been assigned a patent (9,613,064) developed by Chou, Randy Yen-pang, San Jose, CA, Taylor, John Richard, Tiburon, CA, and Davis, Andrew P., Santa Cruz, CA, for a "facilitating the recovery of a virtual machine using a distributed filesystem."

The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "The disclosed embodiments disclose techniques that facilitate the recovery of a virtual machine using a distributed filesystem. Two or more cloud controllers collectively manage distributed filesystem data that is stored in one or more cloud storage systems, the cloud controllers ensure data consistency for the stored data, and each cloud controller caches portions of the distributed filesystem in a local storage pool. During operation, a host server executes program instructions for an application in a virtual machine, VM, data associated with this application and/or this virtual machine is stored in the distributed filesystem. Upon detecting a subsequent failure, the system can recover and resume the execution of the virtual machine and application using the previous application and virtual machine data that was stored in the distributed filesystem."

The patent application was filed on March 1, 2013 (13/782,729).

Sending interim notifications to client of distributed filesystem
Panzura, Inc., Campbell, CA, has been assigned a patent (9,613,048) developed by Lin, Yun, Bellevue, WA, and Taylor, John Richard, Tiburon, CA, for a "sending interim notifications to a client of a distributed filesystem."

The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "The disclosed embodiments disclose techniques for sending interim notifications to a client of a distributed filesystem. Two or more cloud controllers collectively manage distributed filesystem data that is stored in one or more cloud storage systems, the cloud controllers ensure data consistency for the stored data, and each cloud controller caches portions of the distributed filesystem. During operation, a cloud controller receives a client request to access a file. The cloud controller determines that it will need to contact at least one of another peer cloud controller or a cloud storage system to service the request, and sends an interim notification to the client to notify the client that the request is pending."

The patent application was filed on September 10, 2014 (14/482,934).
