Storage Maintenance Window (Erl, Naserpour)

How can access to data in a cloud storage device be preserved during a maintenance outage?

Problem

Hardware maintenance on cloud storage devices can require shutting down the device, resulting in loss of data access and disruption of service.

Solution

An outage prevention system is created to temporarily move the data without interruption during maintenance and other types of outages.

Application

LUN migration is applied to temporarily transfer data to a separate cloud storage device during the maintenance window.
