  • Publication number: 20130282970
    Abstract: Systems and methods for pre-fetching of data in a memory are provided. By pre-fetching stored data from a slower memory into a faster memory, the amount of time required for data retrieval and/or processing may be reduced. First, data is received and pre-scanned to generate a sample fingerprint. Fingerprints stored in a faster memory that are similar to the sample fingerprint are identified. Data stored in the slower memory associated with the identified stored fingerprints is copied into the faster memory. The copied data may be compared to the received data. Various embodiments may be included in a network memory architecture to allow for faster data matching and instruction generation in a central appliance.

  • Patent number: 8489562
    Abstract: A method for deferred storage of data is disclosed. A packet comprising instructions and literal data for rebuilding packet data from a network device is received. The packet data is rebuilt according to the instructions and the literal data. The rebuilt packet data is rewritten to a temporary page in memory. A page utilization metric is calculated based on the contents of the temporary page, the contents comprising the rebuilt data packet. Whether the contents of the temporary page sufficiently match data in data storage is determined. The contents of the temporary page are discarded or stored based on the determination.

  • Publication number: 20130117494
    Abstract: Methods and systems for the optimization of available computing resources within a virtual environment are disclosed. An exemplary method comprises determining the sizes of the computing resources available to the virtual machine and determining optimal data structures for the virtual machine based on the sizes of the computing resources. The optimal data structures may include an indexing data structure and a historic data. The method may further comprise allocating a Random Access Memory (RAM) and disk storage to the optimal data structures and configuring the optimal data structures within the RAM and the disk storage. The optimization of data structures involves balancing requirements of the indexing data structure and the historic data.

  • Publication number: 20130056485
    Abstract: A transport container for substrates such as semiconductor wafers and solar cell substrates includes a cover and a base having a plurality of side walls including movable wall portions with vertically extending hinges or hinges that provide a pivot about a vertical axis. The hinges can be resilient movable polymer portions such as living hinges and can have an unconnected upper edge and an unconnected lower edge to allow the movable wall portions to move inwardly relative to a floor of the base. The cover can include a base engagement portion configured as a cam portion that engages a cover engagement portion on the movable wall portions as the cover is inserted onto the base. As the cam portions of the cover engage the cover engagement portions, the cam portions move the wall inwardly relative to the base to align the substrates.
