  • Patent number: 10282112
    Abstract: Methods and systems for managing, storing, and serving data within a virtualized environment are described. In some embodiments, a data management system may manage the extraction and storage of virtual machine snapshots, provide near instantaneous restoration of a virtual machine or one or more files located on the virtual machine, and enable secondary workloads to directly use the data management system as a primary storage target to read or modify past versions of data. The data management system may allow a virtual machine snapshot of a virtual machine stored within the system to be directly mounted to enable substantially instantaneous virtual machine recovery of the virtual machine.

  • Patent number: 10157241
    Abstract: In order to dynamically perform operation verification for each function of a program that is being run, a vehicle-mounted information processing section (22) performs operation verification of a function provided on the basis of the execution of a distribution program (141) by a computation section (23). Verification data (151) to be provided by the function is stored in a vehicle-mounted storage device (30). Operation verification for a function provided on the basis of the execution of the distribution program (141) by the computation section (23) is carried out on the basis of comparison of display data (Pd) that is generated on the basis of the execution of the distribution program (141) with verification data (151) that is stored in the vehicle-mounted storage device (30).

  • Patent number: 10140295
    Abstract: The present invention provides a method and system for identifying, retrieving and presenting electronic documents responsive to user queries. The three distinct inventive concepts are relevancy ranking of responsive documents based on component query technique; cross-lingual searching; and search expansion using analytics of initial results to derive and generate a modified query. Each of these inventions enhances document search and retrieval systems and the three solutions may be used separately or in any combination. The three inventions apply in layers above an underlying search system, controlling the submission of requests to the underlying system in support of received search requests, typically originating with an end user. Invention (I) involves use of focus-spectrum expanded search queries and either of two general types of enhanced OR operator that may be offered by the underlying search system.
