American Megatrends International LLC, Duluth, GA, has been assigned a patent (11,416,428) developed by Bhatia, Anurag, Sugar Hill, GA, Messer, Jason, Duluth, GA, and Maity, Sanjoy, Snellville, GA, for an “enablement of software defined storage solution for NVME over ethernet fabric management on storage controller.“
The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: “A computer system includes a BMC and a host of the BMC. The BMC receives a first message from a first remote device on a management network. The BMC determines whether the first message is directed to a storage service or fabric service executed on a main processor of a storage controller of the host. The host is a storage device. The storage controller includes an RDMA controller in communication with the main processor through an internal communication channel of the storage controller. The RDMA controller is managed by the storage service. The BMC extracts a service management command from the first message, when the first message is directed to the storage service or fabric service. The BMC sends, through a BMC communication channel established for communicating baseboard management commands between the BMC and the host, a second message containing the service management command to the host.”
The patent application was filed on February 4, 2020 (16/781,107).
