Trending terms in the identified entries are determined based on the local frequencies and the global frequencies. Identified entries are compared to each other, with a score based on differing terms in compared entries and whether the differing terms are trending terms is generated. If a score is less than a threshold value, a combined entry is generated from the compared entries.

  • Patent number: 9367557
    Abstract: Techniques for improving data compression of a storage system are described herein. According to one embodiment, a first sequence of data is partitioned into a plurality of data chunks in a first sequence order according to a predetermined chunking algorithm. The similarity of the data chunks is determined based on data patterns of the data chunks. The data chunks are reorganized into a second sequence order based on the similarity of the data chunks, the second sequence order being different from the first sequence order. The reorganized data chunks are compressed in the second sequence order into a second sequence of data, such that similar data chunks are stored and compressed together within the second sequence of data.

  • Patent number: 9325750
    Abstract: Systems and methods are provided for viewing a contact network feed in a business directory environment. A system searches, based on a user specified search, a business directory to determine contacts, identifies network feeds associated with the contacts, and outputs the network feeds. For example, the system outputs network feeds from data center managers identified by the business directory. The system filters, based on a user specified filter, the network feeds to determine filtered network feeds, and outputs the filtered network feeds to a display device. For example, the system outputs the network feeds from data center managers that mention a specific product. The system can enable communication with a contact using contact information from the business directory. The system can subscribe a user to the network feed of a contact, wherein the user receives updates for the network feed of the contact via a feed to a display device.
