Netgear Assigned Patent

Netgear, Inc., San Jose, CA, has been assigned a patent (8,639,907) developed by three co-inventors for method and apparatus "for dynamically adjusting memory capacity in accordance with storage."

The co-inventors are Zhiqiang Zeng, Paul Tien, and Wei Gao, Fremont, CA.

The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "A storage apparatus and method configured to improve efficiency of data access utilizing dynamically adjusting storage zone boundary within a disk are disclosed. A process capable of implementing the flexible zone boundary, in one example, allocates a first zone of a first disk operable to store data. While the first zone can be referred to as a RAID-0 zone, the implementation of RAID-0 can be carried out in the first zone. Upon allocating a second zone of the first disk operable to store secured data, the process allocates a third zone of the first disk wherein the storage boundary of the first zone can be dynamically expanded into the third zone in response to the availability of free storage capacity of the first zone of the first disk."

The patent application was filed on July 22, 2010 (12/841,367).
