  • Patent number: 10956275
    Abstract: A storage system according to certain embodiments includes a client-side signature repository that includes information representative of a set of data blocks stored in primary storage. During restore operations, the system can use the client-side signature repository to identify data blocks located in primary storage. The system can also use the client-side signature repository to identify multiple locations within primary storage where instances of some of the data blocks to be restored are located. Accordingly, during a restore operation of one client computing device, the system can source a data block to be restored to the client computing device from another client computing device that is in primary storage.

  • Patent number: 10929709
    Abstract: A device configured to link a first string correlithm object to a second correlithm object in a correlithm object processing system, includes a node configured to receive a particular sub-string correlithm object in the first string correlithm object. The node determines a first proximity in n-dimensional space from the particular sub-string correlithm object to a first sub-string correlithm object in the second string correlithm object. The node determines a second proximity in n-dimensional space from the particular sub-string correlithm object to a second sub-string correlithm object in the second string correlithm object. The node maps the particular sub-string correlithm object to a selected one of the first or second sub-string correlithm object of the second correlithm object based upon the closest of the first proximity and the second proximity.

  • Patent number: 10922303
    Abstract: A system that implements a data storage system may store data for a database table in multiple replicated partitions on respective storage nodes. An export of an active database partition may generate an exported copy of the database partition. A first exported copy may be stored locally on a source node and a second exported copy of the database partition may be sent to a recipient node. The source node may validate the first copy responsive to sending the second copy and may perform the validation while the second copy is being sent and processed at the recipient node. If the first copy cannot be validated, the source node may cause the second copy to be invalidated and abort further processing of the second copy. The source node may also cause the second copy to be marked as invalid to prevent reliance on an invalid database partition copy.
