  • Patent number: 10445373
    Abstract: A group recommendation provides end users in a social group a set of recommended destinations based on the combined personal preferences of the members of the social group. Members of a social group are identified using a combination of location based signals and social graph information in response to receiving a recommendation request. The group recommendation may be determined by combining the personal preferences associated with each member of the group into a master preference profile. Alternatively, the group recommendation may be determined by first calculating an individual recommendation list for each member of the social group and then calculating a composite score for each recommendation on the individual recommendation lists.

  • Patent number: 10445062
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to techniques for analysis of data from multiple different data sources to determine similarity amongst the datasets. Determining a similarity between datasets may be useful for downstream processing of those datasets for different uses. A graphical interface may be provided to display detailed results including: a similarity prediction, data similarity prediction, column order similarity prediction, document type similarity prediction, prediction of overlapping or related columns, orphaned column prediction (e.g., a left orphaned column or a right orphaned column). Detecting similarities may be useful for leveraging prior data transformations generated for the datasets that are analyzed.

  • Patent number: 10423573
    Abstract: A technique for data sharing among multiple filers that share a volume in a private or public cloud object store is implemented. In this approach, a mechanism is provided to enable a local filer to determine whether other filers that are sharing the volume have a consistent view of new data being written to the cloud object store by the local filer. The begins by associating together a collection of one or more files in a “push class.” On demand, a push operation for the push class is initiated on the local filer. Preferably, the push is managed according to one or more push criteria associated with the push class. Typically, the push operation pushes file data and metadata associated with the one or more files of the push class in respective phases, with the file data being pushed to the cloud during a first phase and the metadata associated with that file data being pushed during a second phase that follows the first phase.

  • Patent number: 10417181
    Abstract: Some examples describe a method for using location addressed storage as content addressed storage (CAS). A checksum of a file may be generated during transition of the file to a retained state. The generated checksum, which may represent a content address of the file, may be stored in a database. The database may be queried with the content address of the file to retrieve a location address of the file corresponding to the content address of the file. The location address of the file is used to provide access to the file in the file system.

  • Patent number: 10409784
    Abstract: A facility comprising methods and systems for analyzing and visualizing trends in the usage of data within a shared storage filesystem is disclosed. The facility analyzes the rate at which the filesystem or a portion thereof is used by periodically generating manifests of the usage of the filesystem and comparing one manifest to another manifest. Furthermore, the facility may store additional information relevant to the manifest, such as the time at which the manifest was taken; for each directory, the sum of all of the values determined for items in that directory (including any subdirectories); and so on. In this manner, the facility collects and stores information relevant to developing trend information for each item in the filesystem. The trends analysis and visualizations described herein provide quick insight into the changes deemed most interesting or significant between two times.

  • Patent number: 10409781
    Abstract: A cloud-based storage server is interfaced with one or more storage devices that store shared content accessible over a network by two or more users. A virtual file system module is delivered to a user device associated with the users. The virtual file system module provides file access facilities that are not available by either the file system on the user device or the file system on the storage server. A virtual file system cache system manager allocates multiple local memory areas on a user device. The multiple local memory areas are managed differently under multiple cache regimes. The management of the cache regime spaces depend from a set of cache access response directives that serve to direct cache management operations pertaining to the movement of data blocks to and/or from the multiple cache regimes. One cache regime space stores shared data that can be used in an offline mode.

  • Patent number: 10394874
    Abstract: A computing device includes a storage machine holding instructions executable by a logic machine to generate multi-string clusters, each containing alphanumeric strings of a dataset. Further multi-string clusters are generated via iterative performance of a combination operation in which a hierarchically-superior cluster is generated from a set of multi-string clusters. The combination operation includes, for candidate pairs of multi-string clusters, generating syntactic profiles describing an alphanumeric string from each multi-string cluster of the candidate pair. For each of the candidate pairs, a cost factor is determined for at least one of its syntactic profiles. Based on the cost factors determined for the syntactic profiles, one of the candidate pairs is selected. The multi-string clusters from the selected candidate pair are combined to generate the hierarchically-superior cluster including all of the alphanumeric strings from the selected candidate pair of multi-string clusters.

  • Patent number: 10366104
    Abstract: Methods, systems, apparatuses, and computer program products are provided that enable immediate access to data associated with a source blob. The foregoing is achieved by creating a copy-on-read blob based on the source blob and a link blob based on the copy-on-read blob for each virtual machine to be deployed. When creating the copy-on-read blob, the source blob is not copied. Instead, data from the source blob is copied to the copy-on-read blob upon request by a virtual machine. Subsequent requests for that data are retrieved from the copy-on-read blob. Each link blob stores write data provided by its corresponding virtual machine. When a virtual machine requests data, its corresponding link blob is checked for the data. If the data is not stored therein, the copy-on-read blob is checked for the data. If the copy-on-read blob does not store the data, the data is retrieved from the source blob.

  • Patent number: 10346352
    Abstract: A notification based on a destination of a file operation is provided. A file management service initiates operations to provide the move notification upon detecting the move operation to move the file from a source location to a destination location. A stakeholder is identified with an access to the destination location prior to executing the move operation to move the file from the source location to the destination location. After executing the move operation, a move notification is generated to inform the stakeholder of the move operation. The move notification provides information such as a description of the file, the source location, the destination location, and/or an identification of an initiator of the move operation. Furthermore, the move notification is transmitted to the stakeholder.

  • Patent number: 10331668
    Abstract: A system includes a distributed database with database partitions distributed across worker nodes connected by a network. An analytical view module defines an analytical view comprising dimensions and aggregates defined prior to receipt of a query and maintained as a data unit separate from the distributed database. The analytical view module includes instructions executed by a processor to form analytical view partitions. The query is evaluated to identify implicated fresh analytical view partitions and implicated stale analytical view partitions. The implicated fresh analytical view partitions are accessed to obtain analytical view results. Database results corresponding to the implicated stale analytical view partitions are obtained. A response to the query is supplied based upon the analytical view results and the database results.
