  • Patent number: 11954085
    Abstract: A computer implemented method performs data skipping in a hierarchically organized computing system. A group of processor units determines leaf node data sketches for data in leaf nodes in the hierarchically organized computing system. The leaf node data sketches summarize attributes of data in the leaf nodes. The group of processor units aggregates the leaf node data sketches at intermediate nodes in the hierarchically organized computing system to form aggregated data sketches at the intermediate nodes and retains data sketches received at the intermediate nodes from a group of child nodes to form retained data sketches. The retained data sketches are one of leaf node data sketches and the aggregated data sketches. The group of processor units searches the data using the retained data sketches and the data skipping within the hierarchically organized computing system in response to queries made to the intermediate nodes in the hierarchically organized computing system.

  • Patent number: 11874822
    Abstract: Techniques for multi-stream transactional event processing under ACID semantics in a distributed log-based append-only datastore are described. A transaction coordinator writes events that are part of a transaction to a transaction buffer, where the events can be made visible to clients involved in the transaction while other clients are not aware. Upon committing the transaction, an optimistic concurrency control based technique is utilized to attempt to obtain locks on all events involved in the transaction across one or multiple shards by one or multiple designated writer nodes. When all involved writer nodes indicate that they are able to commit their events, the transaction can be committed.

  • Patent number: 11243987
    Abstract: The disclosed embodiments provide a system for processing data. During operation, the system obtains a set of records from a set of inputs, with each record containing an entity key, a partition key, and one or more attribute-value pairs. Next, the system sorts and indexes the records by the entity key for each partitioned input. The system then processes a query of the records by matching entity key values to the sorted and indexed records for each input partition in the query. Next, the system merges the subset of records with the same entity key values into records, with each merged record containing an entity key field and a single field that includes a list of attribute-value pairs from the subset. Finally, the system outputs the merged records in response to the query.

  • Patent number: 11210327
    Abstract: A computing device includes a storage machine holding instructions executable by a logic machine to generate multi-string clusters, each containing alphanumeric strings of a dataset. Further multi-string clusters are generated via iterative performance of a combination operation in which a hierarchically-superior cluster is generated from a set of multi-string clusters. The combination operation includes, for candidate pairs of multi-string clusters, generating syntactic profiles describing an alphanumeric string from each multi-string cluster of the candidate pair. For each of the candidate pairs, a cost factor is determined for at least one of its syntactic profiles. Based on the cost factors determined for the syntactic profiles, one of the candidate pairs is selected. The multi-string clusters from the selected candidate pair are combined to generate the hierarchically-superior cluster including all of the alphanumeric strings from the selected candidate pair of multi-string clusters.

  • Patent number: 11175843
    Abstract: A linear tape file system (LTFS) maintains a series of indexes, and an incremental change dataset, that records incremental changes that have taken place in each new index over the previous one, as each new index of the series is created. Upon receiving a command to roll back the file system from a current generation to a target previous generation, a generation control module applies information in the incremental change dataset to the current index. In this way, the current index is restored, at least functionally, to the state it was in when the target generation was created, thereby effectuating the rollback of the file system to the target generation.

  • Patent number: 11120052
    Abstract: Techniques are described for clustering data at the point of ingestion for storage using scalable storage resources. To cluster data at the point of ingestion, a data ingestion and query service uses a multilevel hash tree (MLHT)-based index to map a hierarchy of attribute values associated with each data element onto a point of a MLHT (which itself conceptually maps onto a continuous range of values). The total range of the MLHT is divided into one or more data partitions, each of which is mapped to one or more physical storage resources. A mapping algorithm uses the hierarchy of attribute fields to calculate the position of each data element ingested and, consequently, a physical storage resource at which to store the data element.

  • Patent number: 11115057
    Abstract: The disclosed technology generally describes a data protection scheme that for “mid-size” objects directly writes divided object data fragments, and performs erasure coding to directly write object coding fragments, to distributed storage locations in a node cluster. A storage container such as a chunk allocated for mid-size objects is distributed among the storage cluster nodes. When a mid-size object (e.g., between 24 megabytes and 128 megabytes) is to be created, the object data is divided into object data fragments and encoded into object coding fragments, with the data object fragments and object coding fragments written/appended to the distributed storage locations, without needing a preliminary protection scheme.
