ARMONK, N.Y., April 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- IBM (NYSE: IBM) inventors have patented a cloud computing invention that can improve quality of service for clients by enabling data to be dynamically modified, prioritized and shared across a cloud environment.
As more and more companies take advantage of applications, processes and services delivered via the cloud, vendors are struggling with increased complexity and challenges associated with ensuring uninterrupted data availability. IBM's patented technique creates a cloud environment in which Quality of Service priorities can be modified according to real-time or expected conditions, to reduce data bottlenecks in the cloud, thereby ensuring that clients receive the level and quality of service they expect.
The new invention will help alleviate problems that cloud providers face when they need to provide simultaneous, efficient and uninterrupted service to a range of clients for applications, including online banking and shopping, real-time video, supply-chain management, enterprise resources planning and more.
"Since companies are relying upon the cloud to manage and process critical business data and interactions, guaranteeing and delivering quality, reliable service is an imperative for cloud vendors," said IBM Cloud Offering Evangelist Rick Hamilton. "This patented invention will enable cloud service providers to dynamically respond to potential data choke points by changing quality of service priorities to ensure the free flow of data for their clients."
IBM received U.S. Patent #8,631,154 "Dynamically modifying quality of service levels for resources in a networked computing environment," for the invention.
Since beginning work with clients and partners around cloud computing in 2007, IBM continues to focus building clouds for enterprise clients. IBM provides cloud services and collaborates with clients to create new opportunities to reach more of the market or extend their services leveraging cloud delivery.
For 21 consecutive years, IBM has been the leading recipient of U.S. patents. IBM inventors have patented thousands of inventions that will enable significant innovations that will position IBM to compete and lead in strategic areas, such as IBM Watson, cloud computing, Big Data analytics – and advance the new era of cognitive systems where machines will learn, reason and interact with people in more natural ways.
