ProphetStor Awarded A New Patent in Extending Disk Life Span with Work Load Patterns to Optimize Cost of Operation in MultiCloud Environments 

MILPITAS, CA, May 03, 2019 — ProphetStor Data Services, Inc., a leader in Digital Intelligence for MultiCloud platforms, was awarded a new patent, US 10,248,332 B2, entitled “A method and system for life expectancy extension of disks in cloud-based service system” by the United State Patent and Trademark Office. The patent is related to applying AI and Machine Learning technologies in optimizing resource management and user experience in MultiCloud environments. This 11th US patents in AIOps (AI in IT Operations) future secure ProphetStor’s leading position in MultiCloud solution offering.

Different from finding out why some disks (HDD/SSD) can last longer, this new patent can be applied to find out why some disks (HDD/SSD) can last longer. After studying hundreds of thousands of disks, we have found out the correlation of disk IOPS, latency, and throughput with the host CPU loading and memory usages, and thus specific IO patterns can be applied to disks to prolong their lifespans.

Integration of this patent with ProphetStor's other patents helps to deliver a cutting-edge Data Science-driven solution for our AIOps solutions for MultiCloud environment. With the infrastructure intelligence, in addition to provide a platform-based view of the operation, we can at the same time handle multi-layer correlations of the services. As a result, resource management can be better optimized, and the application-level SLA can be best maintained. It will also help the decision of the workload placement in a private cloud or moving to public clouds when needed.
