  • Patent number: 11018667
    Abstract: An optical keyswitch includes a keycap, a supporting mechanism having a protrusion disposed under the keycap to support the keycap to move downward or upward, and a switch module including a circuit board, an emitter, and a receiver. The emitter and the receiver are electrically connected to the circuit board. The emitter emits an optical signal to the receiver. When the keycap is not pressed, the receiver receives the optical signal of a first intensity. When the keycap is pressed, the protrusion moves along with the keycap, and the protrusion changes the optical signal received by the receiver to have a second intensity different from the first intensity, so the switch module is triggered to generate a triggering signal.

  • Publication number: 20210144206
    Abstract: A distributed storage system including a server is configured to accept a request including a consistency indicator that flags for the server that cross datacenter consistency is desired. The server may be required to detect the consistency indicator and in response, to determine a consistency key based at least in part on the request. In an example aspect, the consistency key may comprise a hash value determined by a hash function shared across datacenters, whereby every datacenter may determine the same consistency key for a given resource and datacenter combination. The server may be further configured to determine a preferred datacenter for handling the request based at least in part on the consistency key, and thereafter to redirect the request to the preferred datacenter. In embodiments, the consistency indicator may also denote a scope of the strong consistency required by the calling client.
