Imation Assigned Patent
- Worm mode on RDX (Removable Disk Storage)
Imation Corp., has been assigned a patent
developed by Matthew D. Bondurant, Superior, CO, Mark Payne, Longmont, CO, and
S. Christopher Alaimo, Boulder, CO, for "methods
for implementation of worm mode on a removable disk drive storage system."
The abstract of the patent published by
the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "Embodiments
provide systems and methods for maintaining immutable data in an archiving
system using random access memory. To ensure data is immutable, novel pointers
are maintained in the hardware/firmware of the drive ports and on the removable
disk drives. For example, a hardware/firmware in a modular drive bay maintains a
pointer to a memory address in the removable disk drive memory that cannot write
to a memory block that precedes the pointer. Data may only be stored after the
pointer in the removable disk drive. As such, once data is written to the
removable disk drive, the data cannot be overwritten although the removable disk
drive employs random access memory."
