  • Patent number: 12026132
    Abstract: A data management system (DMS) may facilitate the storage tiering of snapshots on cloud environments. For example, the DMS may transmit snapshot signaling to a first cloud environment that instructs the first cloud environment to capture a first snapshot of a computing object and to store the first snapshot in a first type of cloud storage at the first cloud environment. The DMS may determine that the first snapshot has been stored in the first type of cloud storage for a duration of time that satisfies an archival threshold. Based on the archival threshold being satisfied, the DMS may transmit archival signaling that instructs the first cloud environment to store the first snapshot to a second type of cloud storage. The second type of cloud storage may be associated with a longer access latency than the first type of cloud storage.

  • Patent number: 12010353
    Abstract: A better compromise between encoding complexity and achievable rate distortion ratio, and/or to achieve a better rate distortion ratio is achieved by using multitree sub-divisioning not only in order to subdivide a continuous area, namely the sample array, into leaf regions, but using the intermediate regions also to share coding parameters among the corresponding collocated leaf blocks. By this measure, coding procedures performed in tiles—leaf regions—locally, may be associated with coding parameters individually without having to, however, explicitly transmit the whole coding parameters for each leaf region separately. Rather, similarities may effectively exploited by using the multitree subdivision.

  • Patent number: 11914649
    Abstract: Disclosed is an encoding system and associated methods for generating a graph-integrated tree-based representation of data that provides for direct lateral traversals of nodes in a each layer of the tree-based representation. The encoding system organizes data from a dataset to a tree-based representation with multiple layers and multiple nodes in each layer. The encoding system detects the nodes in each layer, and defines a graph structure that links the nodes in each layer for direct lateral access. The encoding system searches the tree-based representation in response to a query for a particular subset of the data by performing a single downward traversal to a particular layer with individual nodes that satisfy part of the query, and by laterally traversing the nodes in the particular layer using the graph structure to directly access a second node in the particular layer from a first node in the particular layer.

  • Patent number: 11816083
    Abstract: A method of maintaining an index of time-series data records held in a data store comprises identifying one or more time-series data records not currently indexed in a binary tree structure and corresponding with a time range, and creating a new leaf node. Start-time and end-time fields of the new leaf node are populated with values encompassing the time range corresponding with identified time-series data records. The binary tree structure is updated such that the new leaf node is added as a first or second child node of a parent node representing a time range encompassing the values of the start-time and end-time fields of the new leaf node. Existence of the new leaf node in the binary tree structure is thereby indicative of existence of the one or more identified time-series data records in the data store.

  • Patent number: 11416487
    Abstract: Techniques are described herein that are capable of selecting checkpoints of a database job. For instance, at compile time, temporal indicators associated with the query plans of the database job are determined. Each temporal indicator indicates first and second subsets of stages of the respective query plan. Values of attributes of each stage in at least each first subset are predicted using a machine learning technique. At the compile time, candidate stage(s) for each query plan are identified based on the respective candidate stage being a child of stage(s) in the corresponding second subset or not being a child of another stage in the respective query plan. The candidate stage(s) for each query plan are selectively chosen as respective checkpoint(s) based on whether the values of the attributes of each stage in at least the first subset of the stages of the respective query plan satisfy one or more criteria.

  • Patent number: 11347553
    Abstract: The described technology is generally directed towards distributing data fragments and coding fragments of a protection group among storage entities (e.g., nodes or disks) based on affinity levels (e.g., maintained in an affinity matrix) that represent dependency relationships between the storage entities with respect to storing protection groups. The technology operates to distribute a protection group's components such that the affinity level between any pair of storage entities is approximately the same as any other pair. In the event of a storage entity failure, as a result of the affinity-based distribution of the protection group components needed for data recovery, a larger number of the other storage entities can be involved in the data recovery (relative to the number likely involved without affinity-based distribution). This tends to assure a better load balance and faster data recovery.

    Abstract: Techniques for non-power-of-two partitioning of a data set as well as generation and selection of partition schemes for the data set. In an embodiment, one or more iterations of a partition scheme is for a non-power-of-two number of partitions. Extended hash partitioning may be used to partition a data set into a non-power-of-two number of partitions by determining the partition identifier of each tuple of the data set using the extended hash partitioning algorithm. In an embodiment, multiple partition schemes are generated for multiple data sets, based on properties of the data sets and/or availability of computing resources for the partition operation or the subsequent operation to the partition operation. The generated partition schemes may use non-power-of-two partitioning for one or more iterations of a generated partition scheme. The most optimal partition scheme may be selected from the generated partition schemes based on optimization policies.

  • Patent number: 11068299
    Abstract: A technique for managing metadata in a data storage system includes receiving a set of data to be stored in a file system of the data storage system and calculating values of metadata blocks that the file system will use to organize the set of data in the file system. The technique aggregates values of the metadata blocks and sends them in a single, atomic transaction to a persistent cache. The transaction either succeeds, in which case the persistent cache stores the values of all of the metadata blocks, or it fails, in which case the persistent cache stores none of the values of the metadata blocks. Over time, the persistent cache flushes the values of the metadata blocks to a set of non-volatile storage devices that back the metadata blocks in the data storage system.
