  • Patent number: 10061688
    Abstract: A method and system for automatically enforcing a hybrid branching strategy include receiving a changeset designated for a branch. In response to receiving the changeset, the system may automatically determine whether a merge conflict associated with the changeset exists between the branch and an associated protected branch, and the system may automatically determine whether the changeset is up to date. Upon determining that no merge conflict exists, the system automatically initiates execution of a continuous integration testing pipeline. The continuous integration testing pipeline includes a series of tests applied to the changeset. If the changeset passes the series of tests, the system automatically merges the changeset with the associated protected branch.

  • Patent number: 9977612
    Abstract: A data storage system is disclosed that utilizes garbage collection and logs for managing system data. In one embodiment, system data stored in a non-volatile memory is updated based on the character of changes to data stored in a data storage system (e.g., changes caused by host system activity). For example, when changes to stored data are scattered (e.g., changes are made to random memory locations), it may be beneficial to generate and accumulate more logs reflecting changes to the system data. As another example, when changes to stored data are substantially consolidated (e.g., changes are made to consecutive memory locations), it may be beneficial to update system data stored in the non-volatile memory more frequently. Reduction in write amplification, increase in efficiency, and reduction in start-up and initialization time can be attained. Reconstruction time of system data can also be reduced.

  • Patent number: 9886490
    Abstract: Approaches for a persistent data store that may be used to service data queries originating from data warehousing applications, operational reporting applications, or data archiving and data feed applications. At periodic intervals, data may be extracted from one or more disparate data sources. The extracted data may be stored in the persistent data store in a tabular format. A backward delta data set is generated. The backward delta data set identifies what additions, deletions, and modifications need to be made to the data stored in the persistent data store to return the data to a most recent version. Backward delta data sets are stored and maintained in accordance with a policy that instructs two or more backward delta data sets, associated with a continuous interval of time, be combined into a single backward delta data set after the expiration of a specified amount of time.

  • Patent number: 9832260
    Abstract: Technology is disclosed for a data migration process for a storage server that preserves storage efficiency information. The storage server receives an indication of a group of two or more files and selects among the two or more files a reference file and one or more selected files. The storage server initiates a first migration operation to copy or move the reference file from a source storage server to a destination storage server. The storage server initiates one or more additional migration operations to copy or move the selected files from the source storage server to the destination storage server. At least one of the additional migration operations include a step of transmitting to the destination storage server data blocks of the selected files that are not shared between the reference file and the selected files, but avoid transmitting to the destination storage server the blocks shared with the reference file.
