Abstract: A storage system receives a write request which specifies a logical volume address associated with a RAID group, and makes a first determination whether write target data in accordance with the write request exists in a cache memory. When the first determination result is negative, the storage system makes a second determination whether at least one of one or more conditions is met, the condition being that random write throughput performance is expected to increase by asynchronous de-staging processing of storing the write target data in the RAID group asynchronously to write processing performed in response to the write request. When the second determination result is negative, the storage system selects, for the write request, synchronous storage processing, which is processing of storing the write target data in the RAID group in the write processing and for which a load on a processor is lower than the asynchronous de-staging processing.

Abstract: A centrifugal compressor includes an electric motor coupled to a low-speed shaft, an impeller, and a speed increaser. The speed increaser includes a ring member, a high-speed shaft, rollers, a speed increaser housing member, a discharge passage, and a partition. The ring member includes a circumferential wall and is rotated when the low-speed shaft rotates. The high-speed shaft is coupled to the impeller. The rollers are located between the circumferential wall and the high-speed shaft. The speed increaser housing member stores oil. The discharge passage discharges oil out of the ring member. The partition is located between the speed increaser housing member and the circumferential wall in the radial direction.

Abstract: An intermediate member includes first and second intermediate members. The first and the second intermediate members are provided with a spring supporting portion that extends along springs and supports the springs from an outer side. An expansion and contraction of the springs enables the intermediate member to be movable in a circumferential direction. Accordingly, sliding distances caused by the expansion and contraction of the first and the second springs become shorter, compared with a configuration where the first and the second spring are supported by the driven member or drive member from the outer side, thereby decreasing an energy loss (hysteresis) caused by the sliding. As a result, a vibration damping performance of the damper device can be improved.
