    Abstract: Techniques described herein relate to systems and methods of data storage, and more particularly to providing layering of file system functionality on an object interface. In certain embodiments, file system functionality may be layered on cloud object interfaces to provide cloud-based storage while allowing for functionality expected from a legacy applications. For instance, POSIX interfaces and semantics may be layered on cloud-based storage, while providing access to data in a manner consistent with file-based access with data organization in name hierarchies. Various embodiments also may provide for memory mapping of data so that memory map changes are reflected in persistent storage while ensuring consistency between memory map changes and writes. For example, by transforming a ZFS file system disk-based storage into ZFS cloud-based storage, the ZFS file system gains the elastic nature of cloud storage.

  • Patent number: 10007485
    Abstract: A compression first in, first out (cFIFO) that includes at least two FIFOs is described. A first FIFO is used to store instances of higher words in data entries, and a second FIFO is used to store corresponding instances of lower words in the data entries. If an instance of the higher word for a data entry has a different value than an immediately preceding stored instance of the higher word associated with at least an immediately preceding data entry which is stored in the second FIFO, memory pointers are incremented so that a subsequent instance of the higher word will be stored in the second FIFO without overwriting the instance of the higher word. Otherwise, the memory pointers are unchanged, which associates the instance of the lower word with the immediately preceding stored instance of the higher word.

  • Patent number: 10009335
    Abstract: Techniques are disclosed for using a global unified session identifier across data centers. Upon creating an initial session in the data center for a user first accessing the data center, a session identifier is generated for the user session. Because the initial session is the first session created for that user, the initial session identifier is designated as the global unified session identifier for all sessions that may be created for the user in other data centers within the enterprise network. Data centers may then map the global unified session identifiers to locally generated session identifiers for the user. A global unified session identifier enables various user session actions to be performed globally across the data centers, including global logout, global session termination, global session updates, and/or the like. A global unified session identifier prevents the risk of collision that can occur between randomly generated numbers of different data centers.

  • Patent number: 10009032
    Abstract: Embodiments include systems and methods for providing reliable and precise sample alignment across different clock domains. Some embodiments operate in context of microprocessor power management circuits seeking correlated measurements of voltage droop (VD) and phase delay (PD). For example, a rolling code is generated for each of multiple second clock domain sample times (CDSTs). VD and the rolling code are both sampled according to a first clock domain to generate VD samples and corresponding VCode samples for each of multiple first CDSTs. PD can be sampled according to the second clock domain to generate PD samples for each of the second CDSTs, each associated with the rolling code for its second CDST. For any first CDST, the VD sample for the first CDST can be aligned with a PD sample for a coinciding second CDST by identifying matching associated rolling codes.
