Transfer of ownership boosts intellectual property related to packet record and playback technology
Solera Networks, Inc., the technology leader in network packet record and playback appliances, today announced the receipt of two storage patents from The Canopy Group, Inc.
U.S. Patent 6,795,895 “Dual Axis RAID Systems for Enhanced Bandwidth and Reliability” describes, among other things, a system for increasing the performance and fault tolerance of large storage subsystems. U.S. Patent 6,862,609 “Redundant Storage for Multiple Processors in a Ring Network” describes, among other things, a system for distributed processing across a fault-tolerant, dual ring network topology employing an infinite journaling storage system. Jeffery V. Merkey, Solera Networks’ Chief Scientist, is the inventor of both.
“We are pleased that the Canopy Group has transferred these patents to Solera Networks,” said Ron Heinz, Managing Director of Canopy Ventures. “The technology described by them is complementary to Solera’s product road map, and their team has demonstrated the ability to successfully productize innovations such as these. These patents will bolster the intellectual property which has already been created at Solera, such as their pending patents on advances in network packet capture and storage.”
