  • Patent number: 7685165
    Abstract: A policy-based resource management system provides an infrastructure that uses high-level definitions of data-types along with desired policy rules to manage legacy data. In particular, relevant legacy data is identified as well as the characteristics of storage devices where the legacy data resides. The storage management system determines what if any of the legacy data is stored in a manner that is non-compliant with the policy rules and corrects any violations. It generates corrective action plans, and then uses existing data migration software to migrate the data. Accordingly, the legacy data may be managed in a policy-based manner without requiring typical storage management software.

  • Publication number: 20030018521
    Abstract: Internet technologies, location tracking systems, and wireless handheld devices are integrated to target advertisement content to users based upon their interest in events in particular locations. Thus, advertisements are matched to correspond to real world events (i.e., traffic jams, weather events, etc.). Furthermore, event reporters who report information regarding new events are given a cut of the revenue generated by advertisements based upon how many other subscribers request and view the information reported by them.
