Synchronizing selected portions of data in storage management system
Commvault Systems, Inc, Tinton Falls, NJ, has been assigned a patent (
10,126,977) developed by Sinha, Prosenjit, Manalapan, NJ, for a “synchronizing selected portions of data in a storage management system.

The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: “Disclosed methods and systems leverage resources in a storage management system to partially synchronize primary data files based on synchronizing selected portions thereof without regard to changes that may be occurring in other non-synchronized portions. Accordingly, a number of primary data files may be partially synchronized by synchronizing designated portions thereof via auto-restore operations from backup data. This approach relies on storage management resources to designate portions of source data that is to be kept synchronized across any number of targets, detect changes to the designated portions, back up changes to secondary storage, and distribute the changes from secondary storage to the associated targets, with minimal impact to the primary data environment. The approach may be mutually applied, so that changes in any one of an associated group of source data files may be likewise detected, backed up, and distributed to the other members of the group.

Retaining and using data block signatures in data protection operations
Commvault Systems, Inc, Tinton Falls, NJ, has been assigned a patent (
10,126,973) developed by Vijayan, Manoj Kumar, and Attarde, Deepak Raghunath, Marlboro, NJ, for “systems and methods for retaining and using data block signatures in data protection operations.

The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: “A system according to certain embodiments associates a signature value corresponding to a data block with one or more data blocks and a reference to the data block to form a signature/data word corresponding to the data block. The system further logically organizes the signature/data words into a plurality of files each comprising at least one signature/data word such that the signature values are embedded in the respective file. The system according to certain embodiments reads a previously stored signature value corresponding to a respective data block for sending from a backup storage system having at least one memory device to a secondary storage system. Based on an indication as to whether the data block is already stored on the secondary storage system, the system reads the data block from the at least one memory device for sending to the secondary storage system if the data block does not exist on the secondary storage system, wherein the signature value and not the data block is read from the at least one memory device if the data block exists on the secondary storage system.

Process block-level backup for selective file restoration for virtual machines
Commvault Systems, Inc, Tinton Falls, NJ, has been assigned a patent (
10,108,652) developed by Kumarasamy, Paramasivam, Morganville, NJ, Pawar, Rahul S., Marlboro, NJ, Mitkar, Amit, Neptune, NJ, and Kilaru, Satish Chandra, Manalapan, NJ, for “systems and methods to process block-level backup for selective file restoration for virtual machines.

The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: “A data storage system protects virtual machines using block-level backup operations and restores the data at a file level. The system accesses the virtual machine file information from the file allocation table of the host system underlying the virtualization layer. A file index associates this virtual machine file information with the related protected blocks in a secondary storage device during the block-level backup. Using the file index, the system can identify the specific blocks in the secondary storage device associated with a selected restore file. As a result, file level granularity for restore operations is possible for virtual machine data protected by block-level backup operations without restoring more than the selected file blocks from the block-level backup data.
