Go Daddy Operating Company, LLC, Scottsdale, AZ, has been assigned a patent (9,779,109) developed by Knapp, Adam, Mesa, AZ, and Strange, Brent, Gilbert, AZ, for a "storing a file in a cloud storage solution using multiple process threads."

The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "Systems and methods of the present invention provide for a user uploading a file and a customized metadata about the file to a file storage system. This information may be forwarded to an application, possibly an API, which may divide the file into a plurality of file chunks if the file is greater than a predetermined file size. One or more tracker servers may check a database to locate optimal file locations for the file or file chunks to be stored within the file storage system. These optimal locations may be returned from the tracker servers to the application/API which may perform an HTTP request to write the file to the file storage system. The file write may be validated and finalized, and the successful write may be displayed to the user on a user interface on a client."

The patent application was filed on February 4, 2016 (15/016,021).
