  • Patent number: 11368538
    Abstract: A web conferencing system is hosted in a first computing environment and is Internet-connected with a content management system hosted in a second computing environment. Upon detection of an occurrence of a file or folder drag-and-drop event at the web conferencing system, the file or folder corresponding to the drag-and-drop event is made available to the content management system. A directory hierarchy of a file system of the content management system is generated on-the-fly. The content management system initiates operations to retrieve and store a copy of the file or folder into the director hierarchy. Access permissions corresponding to locations within the directory hierarchy where the copy of the file or folder is stored are established such that users of the web conferencing system who were not users of the content management system can access the copy of the file or folder that is stored in the content management system.

  • Patent number: 11297031
    Abstract: A service enables a command that refers to a file system object using a hierarchical namespace identifier to be executed against the file system object in a flat namespace. The service selectively distributes the command to one of a plurality of name resolution nodes based on a directory name included in the hierarchical namespace identifier. The identified node resolves the directory name to a flat namespace identifier that is used to execute the command against the flat namespace. After communicating with at least one storage node to resolve a directory name, each name resolution node stores a mapping of the directory name to the corresponding flat namespace identifier in a cache, so that subsequent resolutions of that directory name may be performed more efficiently. Cache entries may be invalidated when an operation occurs that impacts the relevant mapping and/or based on system considerations such as cache expiry.
