Lightbits Labs Awarded Patent
Lightbits Labs has been assigned a patent for “system and method for managing data storage on non-volatile memory media.”
SAN JOSE, Calif., October 18, 2022 – Lightbits®, the first software-defined and architected for NVMe/TCP data platform for any cloud, today announced it has been assigned a patent (11,467,730) for “system and method for managing data storage on non-volatile memory media.” The innovation described in this patent strengthens Lightbits’ position as a leader in offering high-performance block storage. The Lightbits software, which is architected for NAND flash, is optimized to leverage the full benefits of quad-level cell (QLC) NAND SSDs, providing performance and density at a cost-optimized form factor. The innovation described in this patent takes Lightbits’ Intelligent Flash Management technology a step further through a QLC-optimized caching policy that only writes to the flash media when it is the right time to do so. By improving flash endurance the Lightbits Data Platform offers customers a highly optimized price/performance solution for I/O-intensive workloads in any orchestration environment OpenStack, VMware, and Kubernetes, and on any cloud.
The abstract of the patent (11,467,730) published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: Systems and methods of managing data storage, on non-volatile memory (NVM) media, by at least one processor may include: receiving a first storage request, to store a first data block on the NVM media; storing content of the first data block on a cache memory module; scheduling a future movement action of the content of the first data block from the cache memory module to the NVM media; and moving, transmitting or copying the content of the first data block from the cache memory module to at least one NVM device of the NVM media, according to the scheduled movement action.
The patent (11,467,730) application was filed on December 31, 2020 (17/139,027).
The inventors are Shmuel (Muli) Ben-Yehuda, Ofir Efrati, Abel Gordon, Ofer Hayut, Eran Kirzner, Alexander Shpiner, Roy Shterman, and Maor Vanmak.
