  • Patent number: 10635639
    Abstract: Facilitating deduplication of data in a computing system without managing access to reference count variables. A method embodiment commences upon detecting first data unit and calculating a first checksum value. At a later time, a second data unit is received and the system calculates a second checksum value. If the second checksum value is the same as the first checksum value, then the first data unit and the second data unit are the same data and need not be duplicated. In such cases, an entry in the metadata points to the location of the first data unit that is already stored. Additional metadata entries are made in the metadata to associate a Boolean usage state flag and a Boolean deletion state flag with the second checksum value. Periodically scans of the metadata are performed. When both Boolean flags are in a particular state, the deduplicated data is deleted.

  • Patent number: 10614055
    Abstract: Method for tree management of trees under multi-version concurrency control is described herein. Method starts by detecting change in a size of a cluster. The number of nodes in the cluster is counted to obtain the changed size of the cluster. The number of trees needed for the number of nodes in the cluster is determined. The number of trees may be based on the number of nodes in the cluster and predetermined system balancing coefficient. When the number of trees needed is greater than existing number of trees, existing number of trees is doubled as a single-step operation which includes modifying and scaling hash function used to derive each tree to generate new hash function and using new hash function to partition each tree instantly into two new trees. Scaling happens on demand without service disruption. Hash function scales automatically when number of trees increases. Other embodiments are described.

The UWM is a peer of other vertical gaming systems, and the gaming systems access the UWM via an API server and data egresses from the UWM through an ETL process from a database cluster. The immutable queues allow for data reconstruction using any desired data model. The ledger stores funds of many different types, including real money, points, play money, and others. Third parties can integrate with the UWM through an integration hub connected to the UWM.

  • Patent number: 10594570
    Abstract: A socket service may be used to implement client-defined function mappings (e.g., custom protocols) for sockets hosted by the socket service so that when a particular socket is opened for a particular client device, the socket operates according to a particular client-defined function mapping requested by the particular client device. To establish a particular client-defined function mapping, a socket manager may receive request from a user that specifies a particular endpoint (e.g., a client-registered function). When a client device requests a socket to be opened, the client device requests the particular client-defined function mapping to be associated with the socket. When the socket is opened, the endpoint is invoked. The particular client-defined function mapping may also specify one or more receive criteria for data received at the socket. If the one or more receive criteria is met, the endpoint is invoked by sending the data to the endpoint.
