Akoloutheo, LLC has added an Eastern District of Texas suit against Cloudera (4:20-cv-00642) to the litigation campaign that it began in February 2018. Cloudera has been accused of infringement through the provision of its “Cloudera Edge Management (CEM) and Edge Flow Manager (EFM) system”, both of which involve the management of edge computing systems, in which data is gathered and processed by a device located physically nearby where it is generated. The new suit follows August dismissals in recent campaign cases filed against MicroFocus, Nippon Telegraph and Telephone (NTT Data), and Visual Bi Solutions.
Akoloutheo, LLC has expanded its first litigation campaign, launched in February 2018, with a new suit against Microsoft (4:20-cv-00009) in the Eastern District of Texas. The sole patent asserted generally relates to “controlling transactions between providers and consumers of information services”. In its complaint, the NPE targets Microsoft’s Azure Software as a Service (SaaS) products, including Azure Cognitive Search, Azure Media Service, Azure App Service, and Azure Content Delivery Network (CDN). The new suit follows the August 2018 dismissal of the only two cases in the campaign to persist meaningfully past the pleadings stage.
