Adaptive Computing, which just got a dozen new cloud patents from the US Patent and Trademark Office, figures it’s got one of the largest private cloud patent portfolios around.
It also says it’s seeing rapid cloud growth due to its product ınnovation, up 244% last year.
Its widgetry manages some of the biggest clouds in the world.
Adaptive’s new patents, which it has yet to license to anybody, cover forward-thinking widgetry like policy-based optimization and energy consumption management that have a filing date going back to 2005.

With the new patent influx it’s got 27 private cloud patents altogether.
Adaptive CEO Robert Clyde remarked in a statement that “The rate of innovation to acquire such a breadth and depth of patents is remarkable. The phenomenal cloud growth we’ve seen in 2012 can be attributed to being first-to-market in many core concepts, which enables us to provide a customized differentiated private cloud solution with a higher level of efficiency and increased cost savings. Moab’s unmatched policy-based optimization allows businesses to move to the cloud cost-effectively by reducing hardware and IT maintenance costs.”
The new patents, six of which were issued and six of which were allowed, encompass policies that enable cloud optimization, including data management, energy consumption management, workload-aware power management, complete environment management, guarantees, reservations and billing. The company says the patents validate its pioneering work in intelligent workload management.
