Cloud-native global file system with data exporter

Nasuni Corporation, Boston, MA, has been assigned a patent (11874807) developed by Neufeld, Russell Andrew, Newton Highlands, MA, Perry, Max Picard, and Carter, John Adam, Boston, MA, for a cloud-native global file system with data exporter.

The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: “A cloud-native global file system is augmented to include a file exporter (or, more generally, a file export tool) that facilitates an enterprise customer’s use of a cloud-native tool that would otherwise be unable to operate against the global file system’s underlying file system representation. In a typical use case, the file exporter is configured to extract in a native object format and to an unencrypted target (e.g., an S3 bucket, an Azure storage account, and the like) all or a portion of a volume’s data from the underlying file system representation. In this manner, the exporter creates a copy of the data set that the enterprise user can then leverage against the desired cloud-native tool or other cloud services that are not under the management or control of the global file system service provider.

The patent application was filed on 2022-10-10 (17/962587).
