    Abstract: A method of accessing data includes storing a table that includes a plurality of tablets corresponding to distinct non-overlapping table portions. Respective pluralities of tablet access objects and application objects are stored in a plurality of servers. A distinct application object and distinct tablet are associated with each tablet access object. Each application object corresponds to a distinct instantiation of an application associated with the table. The tablet access objects and associated application objects are redistributed among the servers in accordance with a first load-balancing criterion. A first request directed to a respective tablet is received from a client. In response, the tablet access object associated with the respective tablet is used to perform a data access operation on the respective tablet, and the application object associated with the respective tablet is used to perform an additional computational operation to produce a result to be returned to the client.

  • Publication number: 20170284087
    Abstract: Providing an overturn preventing device which is easy in handling such as carrying. The overturn preventing device includes a damper, a first base portion, a second base portion and a connecting tool. The damper is mounted between a top surface of furniture and a ceiling. An expansion force of compressed gas filling a cylinder is applied to the damper in a direction such that a length of the damper is increased.
