  • Patent number: 11360935
    Abstract: An efficient data storage system is described. An agent software application on computing devices in a first tier processes snapshot backups and pushes them to an appliance software application on a server in a second tier. The appliance software application processes archive backups and pushes them to cloud storage in a third tier. A cloud application on a management server receives storage policy specifications from customers and promulgates the policies to the agent software application and the appliance software application. The policy specifications include time periods and retention set information for the backups. When a retention set has been exceeded, the storage system is pruned to remove file references to unneeded files and delete data files no longer referenced in storage sets in the retention set.

  • Patent number: 11347744
    Abstract: A data management device, communication system and methods for tagging data in a data table and triggering automated action. A data management device receives from a first data provider one or more records of a data table, each record comprising a plurality of fields. The data table is associated with an account having one or more authorized users. The plurality of fields each has a value set by the first data provider. The data manger determines one or more tags for the one or more records in accordance with a plurality of autotagging rules. The data manger appends the one or more records to include one or more tag fields corresponding to the one or more tags for the one or more records. The appended records are stored in a database. One or more automated actions may be triggered based on one or more tag fields of one or more of the plurality of records.

  • Patent number: 11334609
    Abstract: A non-transitory computer-readable recording medium stores a semantic structure search program. The semantic structure search program causes a computer to execute the following process. The computer generates a plurality of search semantic symbols from a search request. Next, the computer specifies a position of a specific word that corresponds to the search request in a search target document, by the plurality of search semantic symbols and document semantic structure position information. The document semantic structure position information includes a relationship information between a plurality of semantic symbols and a plurality of positions of a plurality of words in the search target document. The plurality of semantic symbols represent a semantic structure corresponding to the plurality of words. Thereafter, the computer outputs a search result including the specific word and the position of the specific word in the search target document.

  • Patent number: 11334575
    Abstract: Certain aspects of the present disclosure provide techniques for identifying temporal data in data streams to create a temporal database for a stream(s) application to query for temporal data. An example technique includes receiving streams of data at a streams engine and processing the streams of data according to a priority order. The streams engine identifies whether the database is a temporal database and identifies temporal data in each stream of data based on frame analysis, natural language processing techniques, metadata, and optical character recognition. Further, the streams engine generates context data corresponding to the temporal data. The streams engine generates a temporal data record based on the temporal data and context data, and the streams engine generates a reliability factor. The temporal data record and reliability factor are stored in the temporal database for a stream application to query regarding temporal information at a later point in time.

  • Patent number: 11327984
    Abstract: One or more computing devices, systems, and/or methods for query expansion are provided. For example, a search user interface is populated with search results of a query submitted through a computing device. User input is received through the search user interface for an object, such as a drag and drop command of a phrase occurring within the search results. The user input may drag the phrase from a search result to a query input user interface. In this way, the query is modified based upon the object, such as where the phrase is added to the query to create a modified query. Second search results for the modified query are displayed through the search user interface.

  • Patent number: 11256667
    Abstract: A file system may include an object storage, a merged index, and a distributed database. When a file is stored in the file system, the file may be converted to an object and be stored in the object storage. The deduplication index of the file may be stored in the distributed database. The namespace metadata of the file may be stored in the merged index. The merged index generates namespace entries of the file when the file is created, deleted, and/or modified. A namespace entry may be associated with a specific file and may include a creation version and a deletion version. When a file is deleted or modified, instead of modifying the existing namespace entries, new entries associated with different versions and including different creation or deletion versions are created. The status of a file may be monitored by one or more entries associated with a file.

  • Patent number: 11257171
    Abstract: An activity management system is configured to allow users to access multimedia content where the multimedia content is divided into segments. While a user is viewing or interacting with the multimedia content, the user can submit one or more activities (e.g., comments, questions, replies, or reactions) using an interface. The system is operable to electronically link the activity provided by the user with the particular segment of multimedia content in which the activity was captured by the system. The system is also configured to throttle the number of activities that are displayed to a user for any given segment based on (1) viewers linked to the user (e.g., groups, social media groups, etc.), (2) viewers that influence the user, (3) viewers selected by the user, (4) viewers that cause the user to be engaged with the multimedia content, and (5) a threshold number of activities set by the viewer or the system.
