  • Patent number: 11163501
    Abstract: A RAID storage multi-step command system includes a RAID storage system coupled to a RAID storage controller device. The RAID storage controller device identifies a RAID storage system configuration of the RAID storage system and, based on the RAID storage system configuration, generates a first multi-step command definition file for a first RAID storage device in the RAID storage system, and transmits it to the first RAID storage device. The first multi-step command definition file defines first steps that each include first operation(s). Subsequent to transmitting the first multi-step command definition file, the RAID storage controller device generates a first multi-step command that references the first multi-step command definition file and includes first parameter(s) for use in performing each first operation(s) included in the first steps defined by the first multi-step command definition file, and transmits the first multi-step command to the first RAID storage device.

  • Patent number: 11148072
    Abstract: Methods of separating a multiphase mixture are provided. The multiphase flow can include petrochemicals. The multiphase flow is flowed through a vane assembly having a plurality of curved passages. The multiphase mixture is gradually decelerated such that it collides with surfaces of the vane assembly at relatively oblique angles and at lower relative speeds. Such a configuration can reduce droplet breakup which, in turn, can preserve larger droplet sizes that are more likely to settle to a liquid bed below the inlet diverter due to gravity.

  • Publication number: 20210311639
    Abstract: An autonomous RAID data storage device locking system includes first RAID data storage device(s) that store data included in a data stripe, and that are coupled to a second RAID data storage device. The second RAID data storage device receives a command to perform a data update operation on a subset of data included in the data stripe, and transmits a locking request to each first RAID data storage device. When the second RAID data storage device receives a locking confirmation that indicates that each first RAID data storage device is locked, it completes the data update operation on the subset of data included in the data stripe. The second RAID data storage device then transmits an unlocking request to each first RAID data storage device to cause them to unlock, and transmits a completion communication that indicates that the data update operation has been performed.

  • Publication number: 20210295947
    Abstract: Systems and methods for determining structural variation and phasing using variant call data obtained from nucleic acid of a biological sample are provided. Sequence reads are obtained, each comprising a portion corresponding to a subset of the test nucleic acid and a portion encoding a barcode independent of the sequencing data. Bin information is obtained. Each bin represents a different portion of the sample nucleic acid. Each bin corresponds to a set of sequence reads in a plurality of sets of sequence reads formed from the sequence reads such that each sequence read in a respective set of sequence reads corresponds to a subset of the nucleic acid represented by the bin corresponding to the respective set. Binomial tests identify bin pairs having more sequence reads with the same barcode in common than expected by chance. Probabilistic models determine structural variation likelihood from the sequence reads of these bin pairs.
