  • Publication number: 20190179779
    Abstract: Examples include a method of managing storage for triggered operations. The method includes receiving a request to allocate a triggered operation; if there is a free triggered operation, allocating the free triggered operation; if there is no free triggered operation, recovering one or more fired triggered operations, freeing one or more of the recovered triggered operations, and allocating one of the freed triggered operations; configuring the allocated triggered operation; and storing the configured triggered operation in a cache on an input/output (I/O) device for subsequent asynchronous execution of the configured triggered operation.

  • Publication number: 20190155398
    Abstract: A method includes displaying information associated with a first application on a touch-sensitive display of an electronic device. A gesture is detected on the touch-sensitive display, which gesture indicates a request to display information associated with a second application. At least part of the information associated with the second application is displayed without opening the second application.

  • Publication number: 20190158419
    Abstract: Commitments against various resources can be dynamically adjusted for customers in a shared-resource environment. A customer can provision a data volume with a committed rate of Input/Output Operations Per Second (IOPS) and pay only for that commitment (plus any overage), for example, as well as the amount of storage requested. The customer can subsequently adjust the committed rate of IOPS by submitting an appropriate request, or the rate can be adjusted automatically based on any of a number of criteria. Data volumes for the customer can be migrated, split, or combined in order to provide the adjusted rate. The interaction of the customer with the data volume does not need to change, independent of adjustments in rate or changes in the data volume, other than the rate at which requests are processed.

  • Patent number: 10291828
    Abstract: A scalable three-dimensional (3D), 360-degree camera system is configured to capture images and/or video across 360 degrees of a local area. The camera system includes a plurality of cameras that are coupled to a spherical inner core, which is enclosed within an exterior shell composed of several segments. The exterior shell segments include apertures that align with each camera, and an interior shell component is concentrically aligned with each aperture. The configuration of the exterior shell segments and the interior shell components protect the camera assembly from physical damage and the environment and additionally improve heat dissipation from internal components of the camera system. Design parameters of the camera system can be determined to adjust the number of cameras, the size of the inner core, the positioning of the cameras on the inner core, and the number and configuration of the segments of the interior and exterior shell.

  • Patent number: 10268452
    Abstract: A system for reseeding a pseudo random number generator to generate pseudo random numbers includes a true random number generator generating a true random number, a storage device storing the generated true random number, a pseudo random number generator generating pseudo random numbers using the stored true random number as a seed, and a controller coupled to the true random number generator and the pseudo random number generator to (1) generate a new true random number concurrently with the operation of the pseudo random number generator, and storing the new true random number, and (2) reseed the pseudo random number generator with the new true random number.

  • Patent number: 10228160
    Abstract: A furnace has a cabinet having at least one wall at least partially defining an interior space of the cabinet, a heat exchanger disposed in the interior space, and a protrusion formed integrally with the at least one wall, the protrusion extending generally inward into the furnace to at least partially obstruct a circulation airflow through the cabinet.

  • Patent number: 10230904
    Abstract: A camera system is configured to capture 360 degree image information of a local area, at least a portion of which is in stereo. The camera system includes a plurality of peripheral cameras, a plurality of axis cameras, a first rigid plate, and a second rigid plate, each aligned along an alignment axis. The peripheral cameras are arranged in a ring configuration that allows objects in the local area past a threshold distance to be within the fields of view of at least two peripheral cameras. The first and second rigid plates secure to a top and a bottom surface of the ring of peripheral cameras, respectively. At least one axis camera is arranged along the alignment axis and is coupled perpendicularly to a surface of the first rigid plate.

  • Publication number: 20180313548
    Abstract: A furnace may include a furnace cabinet, an inducer blower, and a flue vent adapter. The furnace is configured as a multi-poise furnace and configured to be installed and operated in each of the horizontal left flow orientation, the horizontal right flow orientation, the upflow orientation, and the downflow orientation. The flue vent adapter is used when the furnace is installed and operated in the downflow orientation. Alternatively, the flue vent adapter is used when the furnace is installed and operated in each of the horizontal left flow orientation and the horizontal right flow orientation. The flue vent adapter has a unitary construction to reduce manufacturing costs, reduce a pressure drop through the flue vent adapter, and reduce leakage.
