Patent 10853146


Issued 2020-12-01

Efficient Data Forwarding In A Networked Device

A method of stateful load balancing, performed by a storage system is provided. The method includes obtaining a request identifier for a request received by the storage system through a network and calculating a version identifier for provider selection, based on the request identifier. The method includes determining a provider for the request, based on the request identifier and the version identifier, and sending the request to one of a plurality of nodes of the storage system as the determined provider.
