  • Publication number: 20220207025
    Abstract: An apparatus and method are disclosed. The method, which may be performed by one or more processors, may comprise receiving timestamp data representing a plurality of database transactions and dividing the timestamp data into a plurality of partitioning quanta (nPQ), each partitioning quantum (PQ) of the plurality of partitioning quanta representing a range of timestamps. Further, for each partitioning quantum (PQ) of the plurality of partitioning quanta (nPQ), the method may comprise allocating the timestamp data, such that sequentially adjacent timestamps are allocated to different partitions of a physical storage system for subsequent storage at the allocated partitions.

  • Patent number: 11352829
    Abstract: A window assembly for installing in a window framing (also referred to as a “window casing”) of a wall of a building. The window assembly is configured to have a frameless appearance when installed with the finish surround installed around the interior and/or exterior of the window. The window assembly also allows the glass panel to be removed with a minimum of removal of the finish surround, such as without removing any of the finish surround, or only removing the finish surround around several sides of the only one of the interior or exterior of the window. For example, in most cases, only the interior finish surround around the right side and left side of the installed window frame needs to be removed to remove and replace the glass panel. Furthermore, the window assembly includes an integrated drain for draining moisture which leaks into the window assembly.

  • Publication number: 20220147643
    Abstract: Systems and methods generate a first security node hash identifier by performing a first hash operation, such as a one-way hash, on a first data resource identifier associated with a first data resource, such as a data set, produced by a data resource platform. The systems and methods generate a dependent second security node hash identifier by performing a second hash operation on a second data resource identifier associated with a dependent second data resource produced by the data resource platform and on the first security node hash identifier, receive an access request for access to the dependent second data resource; and in response to the access request, grant permission to access the dependent second data resource to a user associated with the access request based on the dependent second security node hash identifier.

  • Publication number: 20210250195
    Abstract: A system to perform latency compensation techniques to facilitate synchronous sharing of video content during a communication session. The system enables video content that is being shared during the communication session to be played synchronously across numerous different client devices that are being used to participate in the communication session, notwithstanding variations in networking latency associated with the different client devices. The disclosed technologies provide improvements over existing screen sharing techniques which include continuously uploading streams of shared media content from a sharer's device and distributing these uploaded streams to other devices. For example, the techniques described herein enable a system to facilitate sharing of video content during a communication session without initially rendering video content at and simultaneously uploading the rendered video content from a sharer's device.
