  • Patent number: 9063990
    Abstract: A system and method for searching messages is disclosed. The system and method includes receiving a search query and, in response to receiving the search query: (1) obtaining, from a message repository, conversations relevant to the search query, (2) creating a list of conversations representing at least a subset of the obtained conversations, where each conversation in the list of conversations is represented as a single item, and at least one of the conversations in the list of conversations comprises two or more electronic messages from distinct senders, (3) identifying, for each conversation in the list of conversations, a portion of conversation content relevant to the search query, and (4) producing, for concurrent display at a client, a search result including at least the list of conversations, and the identified portion of conversation content for each conversation in the list of conversations.

  • 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.
