  • Patent number: 10409691
    Abstract: A system identifies a first partition and another partition in a full backup created at a first time for a dataset. The system identifies a revision of the first partition in a first incremental backup created at a second time for the dataset, and links the first incremental backup to the full backup based on the first partition and the revision of the first partition. The system identifies a revision of the other partition in another incremental backup created at a third time for the dataset, and links the other incremental backup to the full backup based on the other partition and the revision of the other partition. The system restores the other partition in the dataset based on the link from the other incremental backup to the full backup, in response to receiving a request to restore the other partition in the dataset.

  • Patent number: 10387381
    Abstract: Data management using an open standard file system interface to a storage gateway is described. A system uses an open standard file system interface to instruct a storage gateway to create a directory, create a file for the directory, write information to the file, and store, based on the information written to the file, data to storage associated with the storage gateway.

  • Patent number: 7797279
    Abstract: New full backups are generated by combining an incremental backup with a previous full backup. A previous full backup is stored in a backup server in a hash file system format. A file server generates an incremental backup of a data set on the file server by identifying and dumping files/directories of the data set that are new/modified into a tar file that is sent to an accelerator. The accelerator parses the incremental backup tar file and converts it to a hash file system format that includes metadata, hash values, and new/modified data atomics. The accelerator merges the incremental backup into the previous full backup to generate a new full backup by altering metadata and hash values of a copy of the previous full backup such that the resulting metadata and hash values describe and point to new/modified directories and files as well as unmodified directories and files.

  • Publication number: 20070012588
    Abstract: A pallet can be detachably carried on a sled for shipping heavier objects on the pallet as carried by the sled, or lighter object on the pallet alone, the sled spreading the weight over a greater area than the pallet alone. The dimensions of both the pallet and sled are related to contribute different integer fractions of a given dimension such as the length of a standard intermodal container. This arrangement is apt for shipping smaller steel coils on pallets and larger steel coils on pallets carried by sleds. Thus, for example, quarter-container-length pallets, normally appropriate for a pallet to carry lighter coils, can carry heavier loads on a sled occupying a larger proportion of the container length, such as a half-container-length sled. An attachment mechanism affixes the sled to the pallet and the assembly is configured for manipulation with a fork lift.
