  • Patent number: 11175989
    Abstract: A technique provides efficient data protection, such as erasure coding, for data blocks of volumes served by storage nodes of a cluster. Data blocks associated with write requests of unpredictable client workload patterns may be compressed. A set of the compressed data blocks may be selected to form a write group and an erasure code may be applied to the group to algorithmically generate one or more encoded blocks in addition to the data blocks. Due to the unpredictability of the data workload patterns, the compressed data blocks may have varying sizes. A pool of the various-sized compressed data blocks may be established and maintained from which the data blocks of the write group are selected. Establishment and maintenance of the pool enables selection of compressed data blocks that are substantially close to the same size and, thus, that require minimal padding.

  • Publication number: 20210334241
    Abstract: A technique transitions data blocks of volumes served by storage nodes of a storage cluster from an old data protection scheme (DPS) to a new DPS in a non-disruptive manner. Slice services of the storage nodes forward the data blocks associated with write requests to the block services for storage on storage devices of the nodes. Mapping of volume logical block addresses to block identifiers are contained in slice files, wherein there is a single slice file for each volume. To transition a volume between the old and new DPSs, the slice service tags the data blocks with the new DPS when forwarding new write requests to the block services. In accordance with a background transitioning process, the slice service also retrieves every data block referenced by the to slice file and then resends the data to the block service with the new DPS.

  • Publication number: 20210326195
    Abstract: Embodiments of the present disclosure provide a system, including at least one processor and a memory component having instructions stored thereon, which, when executed by the processor, cause the processor to perform operations, including presenting data from a distributed network of data sources via a user interface of a user device, by identifying a set of frames associated with the user, the frames including data from the data sources loaded into frames of a container page, authenticating the set of frames, and generating the container page for display. Operations include facilitating secure communications between the authenticated frames of the container page, by receiving a message from one of the authenticated frames, verifying authenticated status of the sender frame, and transmitting the message to target frames. Operations further include presenting an updated version of the data from the data sources, based on the secure communications, by updating the container page.

  • Patent number: 11142272
    Abstract: A display fixture for holding one or more cycles includes a linear track, a stop, a wheel mount, and a coupling member. The linear track defines a channel along the linear track. The channel is open upwardly and extends from a first end to a second end of the linear track. The stop is secured to the first end of the linear track. The wheel mount is slidably received along the linear track. The wheel mount includes a cam member, slidably interacting with the linear track, and an extension member, extending as an upward bridge between opposing sides of the cam member to receive a wheel of one of the one or more cycles by extending over a portion of the wheel. The coupling member extends through the wheel mount and the linear track to selectively secure the wheel mount in of position along the linear track.

  • Patent number: 11097798
    Abstract: A platform fixture for displaying a wheeled good includes a frame, a rail, a wedge stop, and a mounting bracket. The rail extends across a top of the frame. The wedge stop is configured to selectively receive one or more wheels of the wheeled good and includes longitudinal flanges and two coupling flanges. Each of the two longitudinal flanges extends downwardly from a V-shaped top surface of the wedge stop. Each of the two coupling flanges extends inwardly from a different one of the longitudinal flanges. The mounting bracket is coupled to the rail and includes two T-shaped side segments defining a base portion and a cross bar that is wider than the base portion.

  • Publication number: 20210248254
    Abstract: A bin syncing technique ensures continuous data protection, such as replication and erasure coding, for content driven distribution of data served by storage nodes of a cluster in the event of failure to one or more block services configured to process the data. The cluster maintains information about the block services assigned to host a bin with a copy of the data in a bin assignment table associated with a state. The copies of the data are named, e.g., replica 0 (R0), replica 1 (R1) or replica 2 (R2). In response to failure of one or more block services assigned to host a bin with a replica of the data, an alternate or replacement block service may access the assignments maintained in the bin assignment table, which specify names of the replicas associated with the state.
