  • Publication number: 20210294700
    Abstract: Application discovery from access patterns is disclosed. Access histories from multiple servers are collected and stored at a warehouse, which me part of a data protection system. A time series analysis is performed on the access history to identify consistency groups and applications from the perspective of devices and storage arrays. Data protection operations such as backup operations can then be performed on the basis of devices or storage in storage arrays or other arrangements that pertain to specific consistency groups or to specific applications.

  • Patent number: 11127210
    Abstract: A system for automatically displaying virtual objects within a mixed reality environment is described. In some embodiments, a see-through head-mounted display device (HMD) identifies a real object (e.g., a person or book) within a field of view of the HMD, detects one or more interactions associated with real object, and automatically displays virtual objects associated with the real object if the one or more interactions involve touching or satisfy one or more social rules stored in a social rules database. The one or more social rules may be used to infer a particular social relationship by considering the distance to another person, the type of environment (e.g., at home or work), and particular physical interactions (e.g., handshakes or hugs). The virtual objects displayed on the HMD may depend on the particular social relationship inferred (e.g., a friend or acquaintance).

  • Publication number: 20210278269
    Abstract: A gas meter is configured for diagnostics using differential pressure (DP) measurements. The configurations include executable instructions to actively manage the DP sensor. These instructions active the DP sensor only during stable flow and, where applicable, for a defined test time period. This feature manages power consumption to maintain battery life with acceptable standards or regulations.

  • Publication number: 20210281560
    Abstract: Techniques are described that enable maintaining of session stickiness across authentication and authorization channels in an access management system, through the use an identifier for an access manager from a plurality of access managers. The access manager authenticates a user of a client device based on an authentication request. In response to response to successful authentication of the user, the access manager creates a session. The access manager also generates the identifier and causes the identifier to be stored for the session. The access manager can then receive a second request, which is sent to the access manager based on identifying the access manager using the stored identifier.

  • Publication number: 20210053915
    Abstract: The invention relates to N-hydroxysulfonamide derivatives that donate nitroxyl (HNO) under physiological conditions and are useful in treating and/or preventing the onset and/or development of diseases or conditions that are responsive to nitroxyl therapy, including heart failure and ischemia/reperfusion injury. Novel N-hydroxysulfonamide derivatives release HNO at a controlled rate under physiological conditions, and the rate of HNO release is modulated by varying the nature and location of functional groups on the N-hydroxysulfonamide derivatives.

  • Patent number: 10931921
    Abstract: Techniques to provide a micro-broadcast of an event are described. Video data streams of a live event at a venue may be captured in one or more wireless camera devices. The data streams may be sent to one of a network of wireless access points where they are relayed to a control center. A computer system in the control center may select one of the video data streams to be broadcast as a micro-broadcast. The selected video data stream may then be formatted for the micro-broadcast before a micro-broadcast transmitter broadcasts the formatted selected video data stream.
