  • Publication number: 20190136514
    Abstract: Systems and methods for making a waterproofed concrete wall assembly, such as for a basement wall. A form is constructed. At least a first side of the form is made of one or more boards having a polymer foam and a fibrous facer. At least some of the boards have perimeter edges shaped such that some adjacent boards overlap at the shaped perimeter edges. Concrete is poured into the gap between the sides of the form, and is allowed to harden. The other side of the form may be removed, while leaving the boards of the first side of the form in place adjacent the hardened concrete. Some of the concrete is infused into the fibrous facers of at least some of the boards.

  • Publication number: 20190136515
    Abstract: Systems and methods for making a waterproofed concrete wall assembly, such as for a basement wall. A waterproof liner is present at the pouring of the concrete of the wall assembly, and has a fibrous layer into which concrete can infuse before hardening. The waterproof liner may include one or more boards including a polymer foam. The boards may line a form used to make the wall assembly, or may make up part of the form.

  • Patent number: 8131926
    Abstract: A generic storage container system is provided for a grid-based storage architecture, comprising a generic storage container comprising a plurality of storage domains along one axis against a plurality of rows of stripes along another axis defining a preselected storage capacity, and configuration information allocating the stripes in response to a storage format specified by an allocation request. A method is provided for storing the data, comprising: providing the generic storage container; providing configuration information adapted for selectively allocating the stripes in relation to a data storage format; specifying a desired storage format; and allocating the stripes in response to the desired format.

  • Patent number: 7353353
    Abstract: A method for implementing security management in a storage area network by controlling access to network resources. Initially, a resource provider communicates with potential resource users, such as host computers, servers, and workstations, to allow the users to discover the resources available on the storage area network. Resource users that have not previously logged in to a particular resource supply identification information to the resource provider, which places the information in a ‘not yet approved entity’ table. The ‘not yet approved entity’ table is made available to a management station. An administrator, using the management station, then determines whether to authorize use of resources. If access to the requested resource is allowed, the resource user identification information is stored in an ‘approved entity’ table. A login is then allowed by the resource user to the selected resource.

  • Publication number: 20060288155
    Abstract: A self-contained data storage subsystem is provided for a distributed storage system having a plurality of rotatable spindles, each supporting a storage medium adjacent a respective independently moveable actuator in a data storing and retrieving relationship therewith. A subsystem processor is adapted and integrated with the plurality of spindles, for mapping a virtual storage volume to the plurality of mediums for use by a remote device of the distributed storage system. The combination of the plurality of spindles into a common pool of reliable, provisionable, storage capacity is described. A method to increase the overall reliability, performance, while reducing cost with the combination is also described. By reducing cost, while increasing reliability and performance of the solution, a lower total cost of ownership is realized by users of the intelligent data system.

If access to the requested resource is allowed, the resource user identification information is stored in an ‘approved entity’ table. A login is then allowed by the resource user to the selected resource.

  • Patent number: 5790775
    Abstract: Provided herein is a method and apparatus for host transparent storage controller failover and failback. A controller is capable of assuming the identity of a failed controller while continuing to respond to its own SCSI ID or IDs in such a way that all SCSI IDs and associated units (LUNS) of the failed controller are effectively taken over by the surviving controller. This "failover" behavior is transparent to any attached host computers and is treated by such attached hosts as a powerfail condition. The symmetric operation of returning the targets (IDs) and units (LUNs) to the previously failing controller ("failback") is likewise transparent.
