  • Patent number: 11487893
    Abstract: Embodiments of the present disclosure provide techniques for defining database roles to allow sharing of the objects within a database in a more granular fashion. A set of database roles is created within a database container of a provider account, each database role comprising a separate object from any of a plurality of objects within the database container. A set of grants to a particular subset of the plurality of data objects of the database container is assigned to each of the set of database roles. A share object to which each of the set of database roles has been granted is mounted within a consumer account, thereby generating an imported database container having an imported copy of each of the set of database roles within the consumer account. Certain imported copies of the set of database roles are granted to account level roles of the consumer account.

  • Patent number: 11354093
    Abstract: Methodology to reduce the running time of any string sorting algorithm is described. In one methodology, a prefix of each string from the input unsorted string array is converted to an integer and placed in an array. The array of integers is sorted using the given sorting algorithm. In subsequent methodology, the characters of the string prefix are placed in a record structure and stored in an array of character records. The array of character records is sorted using the given sorting algorithm. The input unsorted array of strings is then sorted using either the sorted array of integers or character records as a reference. Both methodologies showed performance improvements when running in sequential mode only. Therefore, parallel data sort methodology (PDS) was introduced allowing sorting algorithms to sort data in parallel, and its implementation made the two methodologies execute much faster in parallel mode.

  • Patent number: 11354271
    Abstract: A Multi-Threaded Indexed (“MTI”) file system may use a first set of threads, processes, or executable instances to index desired file attributes in a database while simultaneously but independently executing file operations with a second set of threads, processes, or executable instances. In response to receiving a file operation, the second set of threads, processes, or executable instance may query the database to directly identify files that are indirectly implicated by the file operation with a wildcard, regular expression, and/or other expression that indirectly identifies the files based on different file attributes, paths, name expressions, or combinations thereof. The second set of threads, processes, or executable instances are therefore able to identify the files implicated by the file operation based solely on the indexed file attributes already entered in the database without the need to load and scan the metadata of files in directories targeted by the file operation.

  • Patent number: 11321007
    Abstract: Storing data volumes in virtual and physical address spaces such that the data units are contiguous in virtual address space but fragmented in physical address space. The mapping between virtual and physical address space is managed by a storage controller that is configured to implement deletes reversibly with a so-called soft delete, the soft delete being reversible up to a later permanent or hard delete. A soft delete triggers a compaction in which the data units of the to-be-deleted volume are gathered together in physical address space. During the time between compaction and hard delete (or restore), the soft deleted volume is thus stored in a space efficient manner. Moreover, the subsequent hard delete can be performed more quickly than if the soft deleted volume were still fragmented across physical address space freeing up space quicker.

    Abstract: Mechanisms are provided for performing a data replication operation to replicate data from a first data processing system to a second data processing system. The mechanisms store a compression ratio history in association with data to be replicated. The compression ratio history stores one or more compression ratios for one or more previously executed data replication operations. The mechanisms determine whether a data compression operation should be applied to the data for a current data replication operation based on the compression ratio(s) in the compression ratio history. In response to determining that data compression should be applied to the data, the data compression operation is performed and the compressed data is replicated to the second data processing system. In response to determining that data compression should not be applied, the data is replicated without compression.

  • Patent number: 11210220
    Abstract: A data manager may include a data opaque interface configured to provide, to an arbitrarily selected page-oriented access method, interface access to page data storage that includes latch-free access to the page data storage. In another aspect, a swap operation may be initiated, of a portion of a first page in cache layer storage to a location in secondary storage, based on initiating a prepending of a partial swap delta record to a page state associated with the first page, the partial swap delta record including a main memory address indicating a storage location of a flush delta record that indicates a location in secondary storage of a missing part of the first page. In another aspect, a page manager may initiate a flush operation of a first page in cache layer storage to a location in secondary storage, based on atomic operations with flush delta records.

  • Patent number: 11201737
    Abstract: Disclosed herein are systems and methods for generating tokens using SMPC compute engines. In one aspect, a method may hash, by a node, a data input with a salt value. The method may split, by the node, the hashed data input into a plurality of secret shares, wherein each respective secret share of the plurality of secret shares is assigned to a respective SMPC compute engine of a plurality of SMPC compute engines. The respective SMPC compute engines may be configured to collectively hash the respective secret share with a secret salt value, unknown to the plurality of SMPC compute engines. The respective SMPC compute engine may further receive a plurality of hashed secret shares from remaining SMPC compute engines of the plurality of SMPC compute engines, and generate a token, wherein the token is a combination of the hashed respective secret share and the plurality of hashed secret shares.

  • Patent number: 11196757
    Abstract: A database protection system (DPS) is augmented to enable efficient handling of security-violating database client connections. To this end, when the DPS determines to suspend a suspect database client connection several actions are taken. The DPS drops the request and sends a database protocol-specific message to the database server; upon receiving an acknowledgment, the DPS closes the associated transport layer connection mechanism The DPS then initiates an interaction with the client, preferably an exchange of periodic messages (e.g., keep-alive messages) configured to maintain the client in a suspended state. While in this state, the client does not detect any problem with the application or the connection and thus does not try to reconnect to the database server. The DPS then performs an additional assessment/investigation of the violation even as the connection remains open, but suspended. Further action is then taken depending on the results of this evaluation.

  • Patent number: 11188563
    Abstract: A global and local row count limit associated with a limit query are received by a stop operator of a first execution node among a set of execution nodes that are assigned to process the limit query. Local distributed row count data is generated based on a local row count corresponding to a number of rows output by the first execution node in processing the query. Based on determining the local row count satisfies the local limit, the first execution node buffers rows produced in processing the query. The local distributed row count data is updated based on remote distributed row count data received from a second execution node. A stopping condition is detected based on determining the global limit is satisfied based on updated local distributed row count data and query processing by the first execution node based on detecting the stopping condition.
