  • Patent number: 9838403
    Abstract: Disclosed is a system and method for processing account registration by identifying account candidates attempting to open an account as abusive. That is, the present disclosure discusses identifying, and challenging and marking abusive account registration. The present disclosure takes into account users' behaviors on a network and the impact to the cost and/or revenue of the network. The present disclosure is proactive as it allows for actions to be taken at the earliest possible time in the registration process before an account is created. This prevents abusive activity from taking place within the network and effecting services and privileges available to legitimate users. Additionally, the effects of the disclosed systems and methods minimize the negative impacts of abusive activity on normal user accounts.
    Type: Grant

  • Patent number: 8713295
    Abstract: A Cost-Reduced Enterprise Server (CRES) system includes a flexible resource-efficient server having a plurality of Processor Memory Boards (PMBs) coupled to an Input/Output Module (IOM). The IOM provides all networking and storage interfaces for the server. The IOM is implemented as a field-replaceable pluggable module, and thus all Input/Output (I/O) capabilities or resources of a CRES system may be upgraded via replacement of the IOM. Each PMB is dividable into a pair of Symmetric MultiProcessor (SMP) complexes, and each complex is coupled to a respective portion of the I/O resources provided by the IOM. Each portion of the IOM provides a pair of I/O daughter-module connectors compatible with standard I/O interfaces, such as Peripheral Component Interconnect (PCI)-X and PCI-Express. One or more CRES systems may be coupled to one or more Enterprise Server (ES) systems to form a multi-chassis server managed collectively as one or more provisioned servers.

  • Patent number: 8443066
    Abstract: A networked computing system is taught that may be operated as one or more provisioned servers, each of the provisioned servers including capabilities as identified by a corresponding set of specifications and attributes, according to various embodiments. Typically the specifications (or constraints) and attributes are specified with a Server Configuration File. The networked computing system may be provisioned into any combination and number of servers according to needed processing and I/O capabilities. Each of these servers may include distinct compute, storage, and networking performance. Provisioned servers may be managed similar to conventional servers, including operations such as boot and shutting down.

  • Publication number: 20120195517
    Abstract: A system and method of generating a challenge/response test to determine if a computer user is human provides the following steps performed for each instance of the challenge/response test: selecting a graphical image representing an analog clock face with an indicated time; storing the indicated time; applying a distortion filter to the graphical image to generate a distorted graphical image; presenting the distorted graphical image to the computer user with a challenge to identify the indicated time; receiving input from the computer user; and comparing the input to the stored indicated time to determine if the computer user is human.

  • Patent number: 7979552
    Abstract: A system is taught in which a module having processing elements can access network and storage interfaces that are external to the module of the processing elements as though those interfaces were located internal to the module of the processing elements. The system may be operated as one or more provisioned servers, each of the provisioned servers including capabilities as identified by a corresponding set of specifications and attributes, according to various embodiments. Typically the specifications (or constraints) and attributes are specified with a Server Configuration File. An Enterprise Server system may be provisioned into any combination and number of servers according to needed processing and I/O capabilities. Each of these servers may include distinct compute, storage, and networking performance. Provisioned servers may be managed similar to conventional servers, including operations such as boot and shutting down.
