|20150106470||A CACHING DEVICE AND METHOD THEREOF FOR INTEGRATION WITH A CLOUD STORAGE SYSTEM - A network attached storage device and method for performing network attached storage operations with cloud storage services are provided. The device includes at least one network controller for communicating with a plurality of clients over a local area network (LAN) and with the cloud storage service (CSS) over a wide area network (WAN); a cache memory for locally caching data of the CSS in the device; and a virtual cloud drive (VCD) for enabling the plurality of clients to perform file-based operations on data stored in the CSS using at least one file sharing protocol.||04-16-2015|
|20150046521||SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR REMOTE ACCESS TO CLOUD-ENABLED NETWORK DEVICES - A system and method for optimizing communication between a client and a cloud-enabled network device communicating over the internet are provided. The method includes receiving a request from the client to access a user interface of the cloud-enabled network device; checking if the request is for a static resource of the user interface; upon determining that the request is for a static resource, sending the static resource from the cloud relay server to the client over the internet; and relaying the request to the cloud-enabled network device over the secure tunnel if the request cannot be served by the cloud relay server. In an embodiment, the cloud-enabled network device is connected in a local area network and communicates with the cloud relay server over a secure tunnel.||02-12-2015|
|20140297781||TECHNIQUES FOR EFFICIENTLY ENFORCING RESOURCE QUOTAS IN A MULTI-TENANT CLOUD STORAGE SYSTEM - A method and system for enforcing resource quotas in cloud storage systems are provided. The method comprises receiving a request to write an object to a target folder of a tenant, wherein the tenant is initially configured with a tenant quota limit and each of a plurality of folders of the tenant initially is configured with a folder quota limit, wherein the tenant quota limit is then dynamically allocated to the plurality of folders of the tenant; determining whether the folder quota limit of the target folder of the tenant is sufficient for storage of the object; upon determining that the folder quota limit of the target folder is sufficient, increasing a folder quota usage of the target folder by a delta value; and storing the object in the target folder.||10-02-2014|
|20140297604||TECHNIQUES FOR RECONCILING METADATA AND DATA IN A CLOUD STORAGE SYSTEM WITHOUT SERVICE INTERRUPTION - A system and methods for reconciling data and metadata in a cloud storage system while the cloud storage system is fully operational are provided. The method comprises scanning for broken references in a metadata database containing metadata of blocks stored in the cloud storage system, wherein the scanning for the broken references is performed as a background process; and synchronously verifying blocks for at least existence of the blocks in the object storage system, wherein the synchronous block verification is performed using a foreground process as blocks are requested.||10-02-2014|
|20140215590||MULTI-TENANT CLOUD STORAGE SYSTEM - A multi-tenant cloud storage system is provided. The cloud storage system a plurality of tenants, each tenant is configured to utilize an isolated logical partition of the cloud storage system accessible to a respective tenant portal, wherein the plurality of tenants includes at least a first type tenant and a second type tenant, each of the first type tenant and the second type tenant are configured to provision its respective set of members with a different storage policy.||07-31-2014|
|20130041931||REMOTE ACCESS SERVICE FOR CLOUD-ENABLED NETWORK DEVICES - A method for enabling a remote access to a cloud-enabled network device, the method is performed by a cloud relay server that communicates with at least one client over an internet connection. The method comprises receiving a request from a client to access at least a user interface of the cloud-enabled network device through an internet connection, wherein the cloud-enabled network device is connected in a local area network; using a host name designated in the request to detect a cloud connector that communicates with the cloud-enabled network device; sending an open relay message to the cloud-enabled network device through the cloud connector over a management link; and establishing a secure tunnel between the cloud relay server and the cloud-enabled network device, thereby enabling a secure connection between the client and the cloud-enabled network device over the internet connection.||02-14-2013|
|20110276713||CLOUD CONNECTOR FOR INTERFACING BETWEEN A NETWORK ATTACHED STORAGE DEVICE AND A CLOUD STORAGE SYSTEM - A cloud connector for interfacing between a network attached storage device and a cloud storage system (CSS). The cloud connector comprises a unified cloud protocol module for communicating with the network attached storage (NAS) device using a cloud transport protocol; a plurality of cloud protocol drivers for interfacing with at least one of a plurality of storage devices and a plurality of cloud storage providers, wherein the plurality of storage devices and the plurality of cloud storage providers are part of the CSS; and a permissions-and-quotas enforcement module for enforcing access control to data blocks stored in at least one the plurality of storage devices and the plurality of cloud storage providers of the CSS.||11-10-2011|
|20100161759||STORAGE DEVICE AND METHOD THEREOF FOR INTEGRATING NETWORK ATTACHED STORAGE WITH CLOUD STORAGE SERVICES - A network attached storage device for performing network attached storage operations with cloud storage services. The device comprises at least one network controller for communicating with a plurality of clients over a local area network (LAN) and with a cloud storage service (CSS) over a wide area network (WAN); a plurality of storage devices for locally storing data in the device; a CSS module for at least synchronizing between data locally stored in the plurality of storage devices and data stored in the CSS; and a processor for enabling the plurality of clients to perform file-based operations on the device using a file sharing protocol.||06-24-2010|
