  • Publication number: 20210103482
    Abstract: The disclosed distributed task coordination ensures task execution while minimizing both the risk of duplicate execution and resources consumed for coordination. Execution is guaranteed, while only best efforts are used to avoid duplication. Example solutions include requesting, by a node, a first lease from a first set of nodes; based at least on obtaining at least one first lease, requesting, by the node, a second lease from a second set of nodes; based at least on the node obtaining at least one second lease, determining a majority holder of second leases; and based at least on obtaining the majority of second leases, executing, by the node, a task associated with the at least one second lease. In some examples, the nodes comprise online processing units (NPUs). In some examples, if a first node begins executing the task and fails, another node automatically takes over to ensure completion.

  • Patent number: 10664431
    Abstract: An advanced PCI express board assembly is mountable in a PCI express slot. The assembly includes a main board that is attached to an adapter board by a connector section that includes mechanical and electrical connectors. When the main board is attached to the adapter board, the plane defined by the main board is parallel to, and laterally offset from, the plane defined by the adapter board. The adapter board is connectable to a female PCI express connector in the PCI slot. When the adapter board is connected to the female PCI express connector, the main board plane is perpendicular to the motherboard and is laterally offset from the PCI express slot. More and larger components can be placed on the main board while the assembly remains within the reserved PCI express space.

  • Patent number: 10649443
    Abstract: An approach for interfacing a management control system with geographically dispersed electromechanical systems is described. Service messages are used to access services supported by a number of different types of electromechanical systems. The services of the systems are exposed through the service messages, and the systems are treated as service providers without the need to account for the different types, makes, models, and vendors of the systems when accessing them. Thus, similar to the way that a client device requests services from a server in a networked computing environment, the management control system can interact with the electromechanical systems to request services. The protocol of the service messages does not need to be changed as electromechanical systems are added, replaced, or updated, and new services and support for additional hardware can be added and updated as needed without changing the management control system.

  • Patent number: 10495951
    Abstract: An apparatus for supporting a video camera on the shoulder of a camera operator shifts the weight of the camera away from the shoulder area and to a portion or portions of the body better adapted to bear weight, such as at the waist. The apparatus may have a false shoulder on which the camera rests, preferably without securing the camera to the upper surface of the false shoulder to allow for freedom of camera movement. One or more support struts transfer weight from the false shoulder to the other portion of the body.

  • Patent number: 10481660
    Abstract: Data storage device has a super-capacitor, a control unit with multiple operational states, non-volatile memory, and a bus connected to a computing device with a separate power source. The control unit state is set by the power level of the computing device and the super-capacitor. In a backup state, the control unit stores backup data from the computing device in the non-volatile memory using power from the super-capacitor. In an inactive state, the control unit does not receive power from the super-capacitor. The control unit is set to the backup state when the device power level is less than a first threshold and the super-capacitor voltage level is greater than a second threshold. The control unit is set to the inactive state when the super-capacitor voltage level decreases below a third threshold that is less than the second threshold by more than the dielectric absorption voltage gain of the super-capacitor.

  • Publication number: 20190266195
    Abstract: A data set may be distributed over many data stores, and a query may be distributively evaluated by several data stores with the results combined to form a query result (e.g., utilizing a MapReduce framework). However, such architectures may violate security principles by performing sophisticated processing, including the execution of arbitrary code, on the same machines that store the data. Instead of processing queries, a data store may be configured only to receive requests specifying one or more filtering criteria, and to provide the data items satisfying the filtering criteria. A compute node may apply a query by generating a request including one o more filter criteria, providing the request to a data node, and applying the remainder of the query (including sophisticated processing, and potentially the execution of arbitrary code) to the data items provided by the data node, thereby improving the security and efficiency of query processing.

  • Patent number: 10169259
    Abstract: A pattern-based service bus includes a plurality of bus endpoints, a bus-hosted service, and a bus storage component. The plurality of bus endpoints interact with bus participants external to the pattern-based service bus, wherein each of the plurality of bus endpoints are identified by a unique address, and type of interaction to be provided by the bus endpoint. The bus-hosted service implements patterns that define allowed interactions between each of the plurality of bus endpoints and the bus-hosted service, wherein the implemented patterns can be utilized by the plurality of bus endpoints to interact with the bus-hosted service. The bus storage component interacts with the bus-hosted service to store information relevant to operation of the pattern-based service bus.

  • Publication number: 20180253449
    Abstract: Systems and methods are provided for optimizing data storage and improving the speed of data retrieval in a data store, such as a storage server connected to a large network through the use of bucketing techniques to create efficient data structures for storing received key-value datasets at one or more storage servers. Fast key-value read requests and key-value retrievals may be accomplished through the use of multiphase lookup operations on the one or more storage servers. The system is optimized for best performance of retrieval through the separation of the write and read mechanisms. Systems and methods provided herein control the level of wastefulness on the back end of a system and reduce read operation inefficiencies on the front end of a system.

  • Patent number: 9996495
    Abstract: An advanced PCI Express board assembly is intended for efficiently placing more electronic components or modules having a large height (up to 8.57 mm) in comparison with traditional PCI Express add-in boards. This assembly comprises two PCBs connected together. The first one has the minimum possible sizes. This PCB includes a PCI Express male edge connector and is intended to be plugged in to motherboard female PCI Express connector. The second PCB is parallel to first one and is located in the middle of the space (slot) defined for one add-in PCI Express board. This position makes possible to place high electronic components or modules on the both sides (top and bottom) of the second PCB.
