  • Patent number: 11561805
    Abstract: A compute server receives a request from a client device that triggers execution of a third-party code piece. The compute server is one of multiple compute servers that are part of a distributed cloud computing network. The request may be an HTTP request and directed to a zone. A single process at the compute server executes the third-party code piece in an isolated execution environment. The single process is also executing other third-party code pieces in other isolated execution environments respectively. A response is generated to the request based at least in part on the executed third-party code piece, and the generated response is transmitted to the client device.

  • Patent number: 11527280
    Abstract: A memory device comprises a memory array, a counter unit, and a service unit. The memory array comprises cells arranged in rows and columns, wherein a subset of the cells in each of the rows holds a row activation count for each row. The counter unit, in response to an activation of the row caused by a read operation on at least a portion of the row, increments the row activation count for at least one of the rows prior to a completion of the read operation, and writes-back the row activation count in an incremented state to the subset of the cells in the row that held the row activation count prior to the activation. The service unit is coupled to the counter unit and performs a service with respect to one or more other rows, offset from the row, in response to the row activation count associated with the row satisfying service criteria.

  • Publication number: 20220370782
    Abstract: This invention concerns improved single use caps or covers for vascular access devices such as needlefree connectors that are used, for example, in intravenous administration sets and extension sets. Removal of a single use cap or cover according to the invention from a vascular access device destroys the cap such that it cannot be reused. Such single use caps and covers will help ensure compliance with infection prevention protocols in healthcare settings, which will assist in reducing the incidence of healthcare-associated infections (HAIs), particularly catheter-related blood stream infections. Assemblies and kits its including such caps and covers, for example, IV administration and extension sets that include one or more needlefree connectors, as well as methods for using such caps and covers, are also described.
