  • Patent number: 10346431
    Abstract: A computer-implemented method includes providing a user interface (UI) that allows a user to select an existing database having cloud storage volumes that contain historical data of one or more customers. A first command input on the UI replicates the existing database is to create one or more new databases. Each of the new databases has new cloud storage volumes created by taking a snapshot of a corresponding one of the volumes of the existing database. Each new database contains the historical data of the existing database such that a new set of databases results. A mapping algorithm is executed in a cloud-computing instance that maps the historical data of each of the one or more customers to produce a shard map. The mapping algorithm includes a round-robin partitioning of the historical data striped by date in a circular order across the new set of databases.

  • Patent number: 10259167
    Abstract: Methods and apparatus are provided for affixing hardware components to garments. Hardware components are provided with an operative component and an adhesive surface. The operative component interacts with one or more other operative components and/or with one or more other features of the garment (e.g. with cords, straps or the like connected to the garment and/or with the fabric of the garment) and/or with one or more external devices. The adhesive surface is bonded to a corresponding interior surface of a fabric layer of the garment using an adhesive located between the adhesive surface and the corresponding surface of the fabric layer. The hardware component is projected from an interior of the fabric layer, through an aperture defined by the fabric layer, and to an exterior of the fabric layer.

  • Publication number: 20190041899
    Abstract: Embodiments relate to a facial interface in a head-mount display. The facial interface assembly is comprised of three separate layers of various materials that are contoured to assemble into a removable facial interface that may be replaced in the event that it becomes worn due to use. The facial interface assembly is composed of a periphery frame, a semi-rigid frame, and facial interface foam. These three layers are of varying rigidity, and support contours designed to fit together in a flush manner comprising a removable facial interface assembly.
