  • Patent number: 8019719
    Abstract: Systems and methods for partitioning information across multiple storage devices in a web server environment. The system comprises a web server database which includes information related creating a web site. The information is divided into partitions within the database. One of the partitions includes user information and another of the partitions includes content for the web site. Portions of the content for the web site is replicated and maintained within the partition including the user information. Further, a portion of the user information is replicated and maintained in the partition where the content for the web site is maintained. The methods include dividing information into partitions, de-normalizing the received data and replicating the data portions into the various web site locations.

  • Patent number: 7111144
    Abstract: A redundant storage system implemented in a web server environment. The system comprises a web server database accessible to multiple web servers. The web server database is comprised of at least a first and a second storage bank. The first storage bank is comprised of at least a first and a second sub-bank with at least a portion of data stored on the first sub-bank also being stored on the second sub-bank. Methods for using the storage system comprise receiving a write access addressed to the first storage bank, and storing data associated with the write access to the second storage bank when the second sub-bank is inoperable. The storage area addressed by the write access is then de-allocated.

  • Publication number: 20060123035
    Abstract: A database compression system includes a compression plug-in that allows a database to be compressed using multiple compression algorithms. As well, implementations of the present; invention allow inter-row compression to be used with fixed-page sizes in a page-based database. For example, the compression plug-in inter-row decompresses a requested page from sub-storage, and allocates a page buffer that corresponds at least to the size of the page data when inter-row decompressed. The compression plug-in then adds data to the page buffer using intra-row compression, such as gamma compression. When the page data is no longer needed, the compression plug-in compresses the page data using inter-row compression, and passes the compressed page data from the page buffer to the corresponding page, which is fixed in size, in sub-storage.

  • Publication number: 20040059941
    Abstract: Systems and methods for providing functions from a central facility on a computer network. One function facilitated includes authentication and authorization of users requesting access to a web server accessible via the communication network. Such authorization and authentication includes transferring a request for access from a content server to the central facility and authorizing the request from the central facility. Results of the authorization are communicated to the content server which displays the results of the request to the user by either allowing access or displaying a message describing a denied request.
