  • Patent number: 7783820
    Abstract: A network interface is described in which a single computer bus is split over a long distance into two or more intercommunicating buses. On one bus, processing and applications are provided and on the other remote bus, peripheral and local controllers are provided. The buses communicate through a series of: bridge, a first communications controller, a second communications controller, and bridge. Between the communications controllers, a communication path provides long distance communication via a packet-switched network.
    Type: Grant

  • Patent number: 7320043
    Abstract: A network interface is described in which a single computer bus is split over a long distance into two or more inter-communicating buses. On one bus, processing and applications are provided and on the other remote bus, peripheral and local controllers are provided. The buses communicate through a series of: bridge, FPGA, FPGA and bridge. Between the FPGAs, a communication path provides long distance communication.

  • Patent number: 6748473
    Abstract: A split computer (122) comprises a main module (140) remotely connected by external PCI bus (170) to a input/output (I/O) or extension module (142). The main module (140) comprises a processor (181) and an external PCI bus first interface (300). The input/output (I/O) module comprises one or more input and/or output device controllers and an external PCI bus second interface. The external PCI bus connects the external bus first interface of the main module with the external bus second interface of the input/output (I/O) module. The main module executes application programs, maintains user configurations, and maintains application configurations. Yet since the main module is located remotely, e.g., at a data center (150), the both security and centralized management are realized using existing hardware and software. The input/output (I/O) module has a relative small footprint and primarily performs input and output operations.
