  • Patent number: 11379428
    Abstract: A synchronization queuing service associated with a content management system repository can record file events occurring to content items maintained at the content management system repository. The synchronization queuing service can receive a file synchronization request for information identifying a content item to which a client machine is subscribed. The synchronization queuing service can determine consistency or inconsistency of a client machine state of the content item relative to the content item at the content management system repository and can respond to client machine with a file event summary comprising information usable by the client machine to identify actions necessary to synchronize the client machine state of the content item the content item.

  • Patent number: 11334539
    Abstract: A plurality of database access requests are received at a database system within a designated database access scope. The plurality of database access requests may include a first request to read from a first database table and a second request to write to a second database table. The second request may occur during or after the receipt of the first request. A database access dependency rule linking the first database table and the second database table may be created. The database access dependency rule may impose a protected database access framework when executing a subsequent write request to the second database table when the first database table is updated. The protected database access framework may store one or more values associated with the subsequent write request in a staging table that are capable of being used to undo the subsequent write request.

  • Patent number: 11321344
    Abstract: Techniques and solutions are described for implementing virtual table schemas. A virtual table schema includes a logical pointer that is used to target a table that includes data and is defined according to the virtual table schema. Values assigned to the logical pointer can be used to target tables at different locations, such as in a federated database system or in a cache of a database management system of a central computing system. When data associated with the virtual table is requested, or prior to receiving the request, the data can be stored in a table in the cache. The logical pointer can be updated to reference the cache. If the cache is full, the table can be removed from the cache, and the logical pointer can be updated to reference a table at the federated database system.

  • Patent number: 11314728
    Abstract: A distributed database system maintains data for a logical table by storing, on a plurality of storage nodes, a collection of key-item pairs. An operation to delete a range of these items is processed by first storing, on each of the plurality of storage nodes, a tombstone record indicative of the items to be deleted. The tombstones are committed once each of the plurality of nodes has stored the tombstone. Items within the range are treated as deleted. A cleanup operation deletes items within the range and updates the tombstone.

  • Patent number: 11301535
    Abstract: In one embodiment, the present disclosure includes a method for determining a location of a user. In one embodiment, the method includes receiving operation data including character fields and a first identifier. A query that includes the first identifier is sent to a data store. In response to the query, operation types and corresponding count values are received. Character fields from the operation data are converted into tokens. For each of the tokens, a likelihood value and a second identifier specifying a respective machine learning parameter is retrieved. A machine-learning algorithm is configured based on the count values, and the likelihood values and specified parameters are processed by the configured machine-learning algorithm to determine whether the operation data corresponds to the geographic location of a user.

  • Patent number: 11263203
    Abstract: Data processing and storage is an important part of a number of applications. Conventional data processing and storage systems utilize either a full array structure or a full linked list structure for storing data wherein the array consumes large amount of memory and linked list provides slow processing. Thus, conventional systems and methods are not capable of providing simultaneous optimization of memory consumption and time efficiency. The present disclosure provides an efficient way of storing data by creating an integrated array and linked list based structure. The data is stored in the integrated array and linked list based structure by using a delta based mechanism. The delta based mechanism helps in determining the location in the integrated array and linked list based structure where the data should be stored. The present disclosure incorporates the advantages of both array and linked list structure resulting in reduced memory consumption and latency.

  • Patent number: 11256677
    Abstract: Management of a storage system is enabled. In an example, a partition index associated with the partition is obtained, the partition index comprising a group of nodes, a node in the group of nodes indicating metadata of an object in the group of objects. A valid node in the partition index is identified, the valid node indicating valid metadata of an object associated with the valid node in the storage system. A local index for the partition index is generated based on the valid node. In response to receiving an access request for a target object in the group of objects, the target object in the storage system is accessed based on the local index. With the foregoing example implementations, metadata in the storage system may be accessed more efficiently, and the overall response speed of the storage system may be increased.
