  • Publication number: 20210288871
    Abstract: Visibility of relevance of detailed configurations is improved while deterioration of the visibility of a general configuration between nodes is suppressed. A node coordinate calculation process calculates, upon calculation of deployment coordinates of each node, a degree of importance of an infrastructure resource and a degree of importance of an application, and weights the distance between the application node and the infrastructure node with the reciprocal of the degree of importance of the infrastructure node. Then, the node coordinate calculation process determines deployment of the application node such that the application node is deployed in the proximity of a comparatively important infrastructure node, and determines deployment of the application node on the basis of the degrees of importance of the applications such that a comparatively important application is deployed closely to the infrastructure node.

  • Patent number: 11002462
    Abstract: A heat-exchanging ventilation device performs ventilation while exchanging heat between a supply airflow and a discharge airflow. The heat-exchanging ventilation device includes: a casing; a heat exchanger having a prism shape and accommodated in the casing to be insertable into and removable from the casing; a plurality of support members to support the heat exchanger in the casing; and a rotational force applying unit to apply a rotational force to the heat exchanger and rotate the heat exchanger. When a rotational force is applied to the heat exchanger in one direction by the rotational force applying unit, the heat exchanger is pressed against the support members, and when application of a rotational force in the one direction by the rotational force applying unit is stopped, the heat exchanger becomes rotatable in another direction.

  • Publication number: 20170327341
    Abstract: A printer includes a sheet stopper that rotates between a regulating position where a sheet placed in the feeding tray is regulated and a passing position where the sheet placed in a feeding tray is passed through, and an inversion path introduction unit that rotates between a forward-feeding position and a reverse-feeding position of introducing the sheet. The inversion path introduction unit is disposed at the forward-feeding position when a sheet is conveyed in a sheet feeding direction. The inversion path introduction unit is disposed at the reverse-feeding position when a sheet is conveyed in a direction opposite to the sheet feeding direction and the inversion path introduction unit introduces the sheet into an inversion path. The sheet stopper changes the regulating position and the passing position in conjunction with rotation of the inversion path introduction unit.
