IP3 2022 – Cloud Computing Storage 2 (LOT 13708)

This lot is generally related to data storage in a virtual data sharing environment. Techniques are disclosed to provide a virtual data storage medium using data storage federation consisting of a heterogeneous data storage medium with multiple data storage media, each using different interfaces, protocols, and commands for using stored data. The system has a federation unit for generating a virtual data storage medium by federating the heterogeneous data storage medium for directing a user input to a first virtual data storage or the second external storage device. When the user input is compatible to the second external storage device, the system is connected via network and when the user input is only compatible to the first storage device, then it is connected to the system via dedicated cable. The technology may be implemented in virtual storage systems, network attached storage devices, etc.
