  • Publication number: 20190205150
    Abstract: A multi-layer compute sizing correction stack may generate prescriptive compute sizing correction tokens for controlling sizing adjustments for computing resources. The input layer of the compute sizing correction stack may generate cleansed utilization data based on historical utilization data received via network connection. A prescriptive engine layer may generate a compute sizing correction trajectory detailing adjustments to sizing for the computing resources. Based on the compute sizing correction trajectory, the prescriptive engine layer may generate the compute sizing correction tokens that that may be used to control compute sizing adjustments prescriptively.

  • Publication number: 20150022802
    Abstract: The present invention provides a method and system of chemical identification by using a short wavelength range of near infrared (NIR) such as in the range of near infrared (NIR) of about 600 to about 1100 nm. A silicon-detector can be used to measure the short wavelength of NIR region. A detection signal from a detector is sent to a computer. The computer is programmed with software modules for data acquisition of the detection signal and data analysis to determine absorption spectrum. The computer can include memory or remote access to one or more databases for storing a library of absorption spectra. The absorption spectrum of the material which provides the highest match value is identified as the material under inspection.

  • Publication number: 20140182254
    Abstract: This disclosure proposes a new structure for pre-filter devices, and filtration systems in general, that facilitates tasks necessary to maintain performance of pre-filter banks in the filtration system. Embodiments of this structure allow the pre-filter devices to translate on corresponding structural members that make up the supporting structure of the pre-filter bank. When in position, the proposed pre-filter devices can mate with adjacent pre-filter devices to form a substantially unitary structure that prohibits fluid from flowing unfiltered to areas downstream of the filtration system.
