  • Patent number: 9603094
    Abstract: In some implementations, a mobile device can be configured to monitor environmental, system and user events. The occurrence of one or more events can trigger adjustments to system settings. In some implementations, the mobile device can be configured to keep frequently invoked applications up to date based on a forecast of predicted invocations by the user. In some implementations, the mobile device can receive push notifications associated with applications that indicate that new content is available for the applications to download. The mobile device can launch the applications associated with the push notifications in the background and download the new content. In some implementations, before running an application or accessing a network interface, the mobile device can be configured to check energy and data budgets and environmental conditions of the mobile device to preserve a high quality user experience.

  • Patent number: 8560669
    Abstract: A tracking identifier synchronization system using a convergent selection method comprises first party instructions accessed through a content provider and a synchronization system comprising a receiver, a composer and an output. First party instructions direct the client to submit a request comprising a third party cookie to a synchronization system. The composer generates setting instructions for execution at the client. Setting instructions comprise instructions to use a client-executed convergent selection method to select values first party cookies and, optionally, reporting instructions directing the client to transmit the values of client tracking identifiers. Repeated invocation of client-executed convergent selection methods results in the convergence of cookie values for many operational cases.

  • Publication number: 20120310882
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and apparatus, including computer programs encoded on a computer storage medium, for data synchronization. In general, one aspect of the subject matter described in this specification can be embodied in methods that include the actions of receiving a key-value pair from a first device, the key-value pair including a value corresponding to particular application data of the first device; notifying one or more other devices associated with the first device of the key value pair; receiving a request from a second device for the key-value pair; and sending the key-value pair to the second device.

  • Patent number: 8090825
    Abstract: A method and system for triggering multiple client requests, including: providing directions for obtaining multibeacon instructions, in response to a content request from the client device, providing the multibeacon instructions in response to a request from the client device, with the request for multibeacon instructions submitted by the client device based on the directions, receiving an initial image request at the multibeacon management system from the client device wherein the initial image request is submitted by the client device upon execution of the multibeacon instructions, and, composing and sending a beacon from the multibeacon management system to the client device in response to the initial image request causing the configuration of a storage device at the client device for storing the beacon, wherein the properties of the beacon are configured to trigger the multibeacon instructions to instruct the client device to submit additional image requests to the multibeacon management system.

  • Patent number: 7774325
    Abstract: A distributed data storage system stores a single image file system across a plurality of physical storage volumes. The physical storage may be direct attached storage, or may be coupled through a storage area network (“SAN”). One or more clients communicate with a plurality of storage nodes through a network. A client of the distributed data storage system transmits a request over the network for a file identified in the file system. A load-balancing switch selects one of the storage nodes to process the request. The storage node accesses at least one of the physical volumes and transmits a response for the storage operation to the client.

  • Patent number: 7599941
    Abstract: A storage system includes a plurality of storage servers that store a plurality of files, a monitor module, and a redirector module. The monitor module monitors usage information associated with the plurality of storage servers. The redirector module determines, based on the monitored usage information, a storage server in the plurality of storage servers to service a session from a client. The redirector module then instructs the client to establish the session with the determined storage server.

  • Patent number: 7574443
    Abstract: A scalable clustered storage system includes a control node and a plurality of storage nodes. The control node stores object identifiers and location information associated with a plurality of files. The plurality of storage nodes stores the plurality of files. A storage node in the plurality of storage nodes receives a request for a file in a file system from a client. The storage node then communicates with the control node to determine an object identifier and location information associated with the file. The storage node accesses the file in the file system to service the request from the client using the object identifier and location information associated with the file.

  • Patent number: 7571168
    Abstract: File system independent techniques and mechanisms for replicating files on multiple devices are provided, migrating files from one device to another (for purposes of reliability, increased bandwidth, load balancing, capacity expansion, or reduced cost), and propagating updates from a master copy to remote replicas. The mechanisms involve work queues and asynchronous file migration daemons that operate independently from and in parallel with the primary client-server and network protocol to on-disk storage data paths.

  • Publication number: 20070022129
    Abstract: Techniques and mechanism are provided for deciding which storage device (or devices) a file should be stored on. These determinations can be used to guide either the placement of new files or the replication or migration of existing files to new storage volumes. These determinations may be made on the basis of simple rules, involving a small number of readily ascertainable file attributes.
