The method includes reformatting the second NVM in the second controller to a second format, and blocking handling of IOs at the first controller after reformatting of the second NVM is complete. The method includes migrating metadata to the second NVM from the first NVM, and bringing the second controller back on-line as standby. The method includes failing over to the second controller, and reformatting the first NVM to the second format. The method includes updating metadata in the first NVM to mirror metadata in the second NVM, and bringing the first controller back on-line in standby.

  • Patent number: 10209906
    Abstract: A technique includes receiving a command in a target port, where the command is provided by an initiator and is associated with a write operation. The technique includes, in response to the command, using the target to process a data transfer for the initiator associated with the write operation. The processing includes, based on a characteristic of the command, selectively using memory for the transfer pre-allocated by a storage array controller prior to receipt of the command by the target port or requesting an allocation of memory for the transfer from the storage array controller.

  • Patent number: 10207508
    Abstract: In some examples, a print cartridge includes a monolithic molding, and a printhead die embedded into a molding. The printhead die has a front surface exposed outside the molding to dispense fluid drops through nozzles and an opposing back surface covered by the molding except at a channel in the molding through which fluid is to pass directly to the back surface. The printhead die also has a nozzle health sensor molded into the molding to detect defective nozzles in the printhead die.

  • Patent number: 10209892
    Abstract: Examples include the storage of format-aware filter format tracking states. Some examples include storage of a format tracking state for a format aware filter in a backup system in association with a backup object, access of the format tracking state from the backup system in response to detection of a potential continuation of a backup image, and applying the format-aware filter using the accessed format tracking state.

  • Patent number: 10210128
    Abstract: An apparatus includes a pass-through module that includes connector pins to connect with at least one active portion of a motherboard connector and to separately connect with at least one inactive portion of the motherboard connector. A routing function on the pass-through module redirects a set of bidirectional lanes from the connector pins connected to the active portion of the motherboard connector to the connector pins connected to the inactive portion of the motherboard connector to enable a connection of the set of bidirectional lanes to at least one other motherboard resource connected to the inactive portion of the motherboard connector.

  • Patent number: 10212842
    Abstract: A server chassis installable in a server rack may include a lower compartment, an upper compartment, and an interconnector. The lower compartment may have a front end defining a front opening configured to allow for the passage of a server therethrough. The upper compartment may define a top opening substantially orthogonal to the front opening and may be configured to allow for the passage of a plurality of storage cartridges therethrough. The interconnector may have a first set of connectors communicatively coupled with a second set of connectors. The first set of connectors may be configured to mate with the server, and the second set of connectors may be configured to mate with the storage cartridges, such that the interconnector allows for the removal of the server without the removal of the storage cartridges.
