  • Patent number: 10860443
    Abstract: An illustrative report server interoperates with one or more enhanced storage managers to evaluate whether backup operations and restore operations meet their recovery point objectives (RPO) and recovery time objectives (RTO), respectively. RTO is evaluated using a tiered approach based on past performance of restore and/or backup operations. The illustrative storage manager executes pre-defined queries that extract relevant information from an associated database that houses information about storage operations. The report server recommends alternative kinds of backup operations for data that fails to meet its RTO using traditional backups. The report server is configured to analyze and report RPO and RTO readiness for several levels of data entities, including multiple systems, single system, groups of clients, single clients, and subclients.

  • Publication number: 20200294765
    Abstract: An ion source having dual indirectly heated cathodes is disclosed. Each of the cathodes may be independently biased relative to its respective filament so as to vary the profile of the beam current that is extracted from the ion source. In certain embodiments, the ion source is used in conjunction with an ion implanter. The ion implanter comprises a beam profiler to measure the current of the ribbon ion beam as a function of beam position. A controller uses this information to independently control the bias voltages of the two indirectly heated cathodes so as to vary the uniformity of the ribbon ion beam. In certain embodiments, the current passing through each filament may also be independently controlled by the controller.

  • Patent number: 10725868
    Abstract: Systems and methods integrate disparate backup devices with a unified interface. In certain examples, a management console manages data from various backup devices, while retaining such data in its native format. The management console can display a hierarchical view of the client devices and/or their data and can further provide utilities for processing the various data formats. A data structure including fields for storing both metadata common to the client device data and value-added metadata can be used to mine or process the data of the disparate client devices. The unified single platform and interface reduces the need for multiple data management products and/or customized data utilities for each individual client device and provides a single pane of glass view into data management operations. Integrating the various types of storage formats and media allows a user to retain existing storage infrastructures and further facilitates scaling to meet long-term management needs.
