Stratus Technologies Ireland Ltd., Dublin, Ireland, has been assigned a patent (11620196) developed by Haid, Steven Michael, Bolton, MA, for “computer duplication and configuration management systems and methods.“
The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: “In part, the disclosure relates to systems and methods to rapidly copy the computer operating system, drivers and applications from a source computer to a target computer using a duplication engine. Once the copy is complete the source computer will resume execution, and the target computer will first alter its configuration (also referred to as a role or personality) and then resume execution conforming to its new configuration as indicated by a profile stored in protected or specialized memory. The profile can be value, a file, or other memory structure and is protected in the sense that the profile (and or the region of memory where it is stored) must not be overwritten by a state transfer from the source computer to the target computer.”
The patent application was filed on 2020-06-13 (16/900914).
