  • Patent number: 9251272
    Abstract: A method and apparatus for reconfiguring hardware structures to pipeline the execution of multiple special purpose hardware implemented functions, without saving intermediate results to memory, is provided. Pipelining functions in a program is typically performed by a first function saving its results (the “intermediate results”) to memory, and a second function subsequently accessing the memory to use the intermediate results as input. Saving and accessing intermediate results stored in memory incurs a heavy performance penalty, requires more power, consumes more memory bandwidth, and increases the memory footprint. Due to the ability to redirect the input and output of the hardware structures, intermediate results are passed directly from one special purpose hardware implemented function to another without storing the intermediate results in memory.

  • Patent number: 9043371
    Abstract: A server system having memory and one or more processors running a trusted internal process receives, from an untrusted external process of one or more external processes, a request to interact with a data item. In response to the request, the server system interacts with the first data item and stores a marker indicative of the interaction with the data item. After storing the marker, the server system identifies a plurality of markers corresponding to a plurality of data items and retrieves information corresponding to the plurality of markers. The retrieved information enables a determination, for each data item in the plurality of data items, as to whether an operation corresponding to the data item is to be executed. When a determination has been made that an operation corresponding to the data item is to be executed, the server system deletes the markers in conjunction with execution of the operation.

  • Publication number: 20150074069
    Abstract: A database language is extended to define constraints on a data model (e.g., entity-relationship model) rather than the concrete database. The constraints can be declarative (e.g., constraints that are defined using expressions of the database language) or programmatic (e.g., constraints that are defined as a stored procedure implemented in a domain specific language). By storing the constraints at a higher level than the database level, the constraints can be performed without changing the persistency of the database. Also disclosed are techniques for handling of constraints on partially loaded entities.
