  • Publication number: 20200026786
    Abstract: A method for resynchronizing at least one batch job is provided. The method may include detecting a type of region switch request. The method may further include stopping execution workloads on a primary system based on the switch request. The method may further include suspending software and hardware data replication from the primary system to the secondary system. The method may further utilizing proxy replication engine to determine a point-in-time (PIT) at which the execution is stopped and the suspension. The method may also include switching the replication of the software and hardware data to occur the secondary system to the primary system. The method may further include synchronizing the software and hardware data up to the determined point-in-time (PIT). The method may also include activating the execution of the plurality of workloads on the secondary system based on the determined point-in-time (PIT), switching, and synchronizing.

  • Publication number: 20190163776
    Abstract: A method includes reading, by a capture engine, log data. The log data can be synchronously hardware-replicated. The log data reflects that an update was started for a database of a first site. The capture engine corresponds to a capture engine of a second site. The method also includes identifying, by the capture engine, the update. The method also includes determining whether the update was committed to the database of the first site. The method also includes replicating, by an apply engine, the update to a database of the second site based on the determining. The update is replicated to the database of the second site based on a determination that the update was committed to the database of the first site. The committed update corresponds to a consistent replication of updates across two or more databases that reside in multiple database management systems.

  • Publication number: 20140358593
    Abstract: A method and system for receiving data relating to an insurance claim for a damaged vehicle and transmitting a valuation report for the damaged vehicle over the world wide web. The system includes a client computer and a web server that are coupled through an electronic communication network such as the internet. The web server contains a web site that contains a plurality of web pages. Each web page allows an operator to enter the insurance claim data. The data can be processed into a valuation report by a separate valuation server. The valuation report can be transmitted to the client computer through the web server. A claims adjuster can access the web server by merely entering a uniform resource locator (“URL”) into a web browser. The adjuster does not have to dial directly into the valuation server.

  • Patent number: 6772142
    Abstract: A web-based implemented system in which observers may pinpoint locations on a scalable map in order to fix data by latitude and longitude and to collect data describing that location. Also permitted within the system is the selection of non-contiguous groups of geographic data points for analysis. Although not limited thereto, the system may be used to track bird sightings and migration patterns as well as other bird related information and data. The mapping is scalable and can be integrated with a Geographic Information System (GIS), e.g. elevation, vegetation or city maps. Variations over time can be analyzed for a specific point, and pattern movements across points can be tracked.

  • Patent number: 4075391
    Abstract: A process for preparing humidity-insensitive electrostatographic ferrite carrier materials comprising dry-blending ferrite-forming metal oxides, calcining the blended oxides to provide them with a saturation magnetic moment of about 6 to 30 electromagnetic units per gram, milling the calcined oxides in a slurry to reduce their particle size to about 0.8 to 1.6 microns while adding manganese oxide, copper oxide, and a sodium-free deflocculant to the slurry, pumping the milled slurry to holding/feeding tanks and adding a binder material to the slurry, spray-drying the slurry to form substantially spherical beads, screening the spray-dried beads, firing the screened beads in an ambient atmosphere at a temperature of up to about 2500.degree. F. for up to about 8 hours, deagglomerating the fired beads, and screening the beads to obtain ferrite carrier particles having controlled surface species and physical properties.

  • Patent number: 3996392
    Abstract: Humidity-insensitive electrostatographic ferrite carrier materials having an average particle diameter from between about 30 to about 1,000 microns prepared by blending an essentially stoichiometric mixture of ferrite forming metal oxides, calcining the blended oxides to provide the blended oxides with a saturation magnetic moment of between about 6 to about 30 electromagnetic units per gram, milling the calcined oxides in a slurry to reduce their particle size, adding manganese oxide, copper oxide, sodium-free deflocculant, and water to the slurry to provide a slurry having about 80.
