The virtual tape system then transforms the source virtual tape volume by retaining valid objects in the source virtual tape volume, removing invalid objects in the source virtual tape volume, and updating metadata associated with the source virtual tape volume to reflect changes made thereto. This generates an updated source virtual tape volume of reduced size. A corresponding computer program product and system are also disclosed and claimed herein." The patent application was filed on June 25, 2010 (12/823,295). The full-text of the patent can be found at http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser Sect1=PTO2&Sect2=HITOFF&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsearch-bool.html&r=1&f=G&l=50&co1=AND&d=PTXT&s1=8,341,346&OS=8,341,346&RS=8,341,346 Written by Arpi Sharma; edited by Anand Kumar.

*** International Business Machines Assigned Patent for Maintaining Asynchronous Mirroring ALEXANDRIA, Va., Dec. 27 -- International Business Machines, Armonk, N.Y., has been assigned a patent (8,341,364) developed by four co-inventors for maintaining asynchronous mirroring. The co-inventors are Juan A. Coronado, Tucson, Ariz., Christina A. Lara, Tucson, Ariz., Lisa R. Martinez, Tucson, Ariz., and Robert J. McNamara, Poughkeepsie, N.Y.

The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "An apparatus, system, and method are disclosed for maintaining asynchronous mirroring. A detection module detects insufficient storage space to store a snapshot of a logical volume in at least one of a primary storage system and a secondary storage system. The primary storage system comprises the logical volume. A write from a host to the logical volume is acknowledged, maintaining asynchronous mode mirroring between the primary storage system and the host. The mirror module mirrors the write to the logical volume at the secondary storage system using a backup synchronous mode in response to detecting the insufficient storage space. Under the backup synchronous mode, the primary storage system acknowledges the write to the host while concurrently mirroring the write to the secondary storage system. The secondary storage system acknowledges the mirrored write to the primary storage system." The patent application was filed on Aug. 12, 2010 (12/855,560). The full-text of the patent can be found at http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser Sect1=PTO2&Sect2=HITOFF&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsearch-bool.html&r=1&f=G&l=50&co1=AND&d=PTXT&s1=8,341,364&OS=8,341,364&RS=8,341,364 Written by Arpi Sharma; edited by Anand Kumar.

The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "Provided are a method, system, and article of manufacture for splitting writes between a storage controller and replication engine. A splitter executing in a storage controller manages access to primary volumes. An initialization command is received to communicate with a replication engine. A replication command is received for one primary volume and the primary volume is indicated as subject to replication. A write request is received to write data to a target primary volume of the primary volumes that is indicated as subject to the replication. The data in the write request is written to the target primary volume. The data in the write request is sent to the replication engine. The replication engine executes a copy services function associated with the target primary volume to write the data to a replication engine volume." The patent application was filed on Jan. 23, 2012 (13/356,568). The full-text of the patent can be found at http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser Sect1=PTO2&Sect2=HITOFF&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsearch-bool.html&r=1&f=G&l=50&co1=AND&d=PTXT&s1=8,341,366&OS=8,341,366&RS=8,341,366 Written by Arpi Sharma; edited by Anand Kumar.
