Title
(EN) METHOD, SYSTEM, AND COMPUTER PROGRAM PRODUCT FOR A DATA PROPAGATION PLATFORM
(FR) PROCEDE, SYSTEME ET PRODUIT-PROGRAMME INFORMATIQUE DESTINES A UNE PLATEFORME DE DIFFUSION DE DONNEES
Abstract
(EN)
A method, system, and computer program product for a data propagation platform and applications of same is described. The data propagation platform provides various storage functions. According to an embodiment, the factories of the data propagation platform create and implement device modules. Device modules perform operations on encapsulated messages formed from data and commands, such as device operation commands and data from storage device read/write operations. Device modules are formed into device chains. Device chains are able to perform various tasks as a sum of device modules. In embodiments, device chains are layered and built on each other.

L'invention concerne un procédé, un système et un produit-programme informatique destinés à une plateforme de diffusion de données, ainsi que des applications associées. La plateforme de diffusion de données fournit plusieurs fonctions de stockage. Selon un mode de réalisation, les usines de la plateforme de diffusion de données permettent de créer et de mettre en oeuvre des modules de dispositifs. Ces modules de dispositifs réalisent des opérations sur des messages encapsulés comprenant des données et des commandes, et notamment des commandes de fonctionnement de dispositif et des données issues des opérations de lecture/écriture des dispositifs de stockage. Les modules de dispositifs sont agencés en chaînes de dispositifs. Les chaînes de dispositifs sont capables d'accomplir diverses tâches en tant que somme des modules de dispositifs. Dans certains modes de réalisation, les chaînes de dispositifs sont disposées en couches et intégrées les unes aux autres.
