  • Patent number: 11349773
    Abstract: Maintaining distributed references to data stored on devices of a computer network is described. For instance, a system includes a request component that can communicate a removal request to network equipment to remove a resource from storage by first storage equipment. The system can further include an indicator component that can receive, from the network equipment, a first indication that the removal request did not cause removal of the resource. The removal request can be determined not to have caused the network equipment to remove the resource based on index information of a resource index, which could have identified that the resource was referenced by a resource stub stored on second storage equipment.

  • Patent number: 11349905
    Abstract: A method for updating a non-current data model using a current data model. The update exports a first data set which includes a file with a model object for the current data model, another with option group (“OG”) objects, another with rule objects, and another with junction objects that relate a rule to an OG. The update exports a second data set that includes a file with model-to-OG junction objects, and a file with model-to-rule junction objects. The update transports the first, and second data sets from a first data repository to a second data repository. The update imports, to the non-current data model, the first, and second data sets. The update recreates, in the non-current data model, the model-to-option-group junctions and the model-to-rule junctions.
