  • Patent number: 10783108
    Abstract: The present invention provides a mechanism whereby active servers are able to extend their RAM by using memory available in standby servers. This can be achieved, without having to take the servers out of their standby mode, by implementing a memory manager operating in at least one active server and configured to directly access the memory of the servers in standby mode, without requiring the processor of these servers in standby mode to be active. In these servers in standby mode, at least their memory, their network card and their communication means are active, whereas at least their processor is in standby mode.

  • Patent number: 10161262
    Abstract: A method for producing a thermal barrier in a multilayered system for protecting a metal part made of superalloy, by producing a thermal treatment by flash sintering protection materials in layers superposed on the metal part in an SPS machine enclosure. The layers contain, on a superalloy substrate, at least two layers of zirconium-based refractory ceramics. A metal part is produced according to a SPS flash sintering method and contains a superalloy substrate, a metal sub-layer, a TGO oxide layer and the thermal barrier formed by the method. A first ceramic is an inner ceramic designed to have a substantially higher expansion coefficient. An outer ceramic is designed to have at least lower thermal conductivity, and at least one of a sintering temperature or maximum operating temperature that is substantially higher. The thermal barrier has a composition and porosity gradient from the metal sub-layer to the outer ceramic.
