Robin Granted 12 Patents in 4Q20 for Storage, Networking, Orchestration and Automation of Applications on Kubernetes

15 patents in 2020 for IP portfolio of more than 65 patents

Robin Systems, Inc. received 12 patents from the U.S Patent and Trademark Office during the 4Q20, boosting the company’s IP portfolio in 3 technologies central to the management and orchestration of 5G and enterprise cloud-native applications with Kubernetes.

These patents bring the company’s IP portfolio to a total of more than 65 across its product portfolio, which include Cloud Native Platform (CNP), Cloud Native Storage (CNS), Multi-Datacenter Automation Platform (MDCAP).

Our engineering team has continued driving the pace of innovation at Robin.io, delivering meaningful advancements in distributed compute and storage systems, as well as technologies to simplify the management of network- and storage-intensive applications for 5G and enterprise use cases on Kubernetes,” said Partha Seetala, founder and CEO. “As we head into 2021, the Robin.io IP portfolio has grown substantially, with each patent playing an important role in how we deliver solutions for our enterprise and 5G telco customers.

The company provides cloud-native capabilities that help with automating deployment, scaling and lifecycle management of complex stateful applications on Kubernetes. The firm has been supporting deployment of its products on AWS Cloud since the initial release of its cloud-native solutions and has multiple enterprise customers using CNP and CNS on the AWS Cloud.

Along with the 3 patents issued earlier in 2020, the additional 12 advance the company’s capabilities in distributed network, compute and storage systems, as well as container management and deployment of bundled applications.

Enhance Kubernetes to host and manage distributed stateful applications
The company has been issued 4 patents to facilitate key processes in distributed computing systems, including implementing containers for stateful applications, accessing log files and monitoring containers.

Patents in this group include:

Improve capabilities of distributed cloud-native storage stack for Kubernetes
Two of these patents cover the allocation of storage resources among the storage volumes: one to ensure that volumes with different IO performance requirements do not share the same set of physical devices, and the other to enable applications to reserve space for snapshots. Another one covers the critical implementation that allows the storage stack to enforce ‘Quality of Service’ among the storage volumes sharing the same physical device. The next 2 patents cover the methods for implementing logical storage volumes over multiple tiers, maintaining consistency among copies of those volumes and changing a distributed storage volume from non-replicated to replicated.

Patents in this group include:

Define and manage lifecycle of stateful applications on Kubernetes using application bundle construct
Three patents reflect innovations in handling bundled applications. Included are a job manager for deploying and upgrading these applications, as well as capabilities for implementing affinity and anti-affinity constraints.

Patents in this group include:

Builds momentum in 2020
The patent assignments are the latest in achievements the company has attained in 2020:
