  • Patent number: 10909007
    Abstract: Provided are a storage system and a storage control method wherein, when communication is disabled (communication via a data communication path is disabled) in spite of replacement of a second CTL among a first CTL and the second CTL that are redundant storage controllers and that are coupled via the data communication path, the first CTL executes a write process of writing dirty data and data management information to one or more storage devices while maintaining acceptance of I/O requests from a host. The replaced second CTL reads the data management information from the one or more storage devices. The first CTL stops accepting I/O requests from the host. The replaced second CTL starts accepting I/O requests from the host.

  • Publication number: 20200327091
    Abstract: A device communication control module, which performs I/O conversion for accessing a PCIe device connected to a different PCIe domain from a PCIe domain to which a CPU belongs, includes a device management table that holds a CFG address and an MMIO address corresponding to each PCIe device, and a virtual device corresponding to each PCIe device. When the CPU issues CFG access to the virtual device, the device communication control module returns an MMIO address corresponding to each PCIe device to the CPU based on information about the CFG access.

  • Patent number: 9147876
    Abstract: A predoping technique considered as highly practicable is an electrochemical method in which predoping is performed by assembling a battery such that an active material (electrode) and lithium are brought into direct contact with each other or short-circuited therebetween via an electric circuit, and by filling an electrolytic solution in the battery. However, in this case, much time is required, and there are problems such as the handling and the thickness accuracy of an extremely thin lithium metal foil that is not greater than 30 ?m thick. By mixing a lithium-dopable material and lithium metal together in the presence of a solvent, such problems can be solved.

  • Patent number: 8572336
    Abstract: A storage control apparatus of the present invention is able to duplicatively manage data in a cache memory even during maintenance work. When a memory package CMPK3 specified by a user is removed from the apparatus 1 (S2), a microprocessor 2 changes a pair that has been configured using CMPK2 and CMPK3 to a pair of CMPK2 and a free area of a CMPK1. As a result, received data (S5) is respectively written to multiple cache memories (S6, S7), and duplicatively managed.
