  • Patent number: 10001983
    Abstract: Methods are disclosed for dynamic node allocation for a server system that can automatically heal on failure—minimizing the need for static configuration—dynamically adjusting server resources to match load, and minimize end user wait times. The disclosed methods dynamically allocate nodes to increase capacity for a platform that accepts data queries. Additionally disclosed is a system for rolling version update deployment: workers maintain org lists of org-task-queues that they service; org-affinities between the workers and the org-task-queues require the workers to have access to local copies of immutable data sets to service org-tasks from the org-task-queues of the orgs that they service. A leader running on a worker implements a healing and balancing service that maintains worker redundancy, manages the workers' org-affinities to accumulate orgs on their respective org-lists. The leader implements messaging to the workers to update to a new software version and monitors completion of updates.

  • Patent number: 9778919
    Abstract: A software module is presented that enables a user to efficiently switch between interacting with a content object in a first context and a second context. Information from the first context is used when switching to the second context and vice versa, thereby decreasing the overhead associated with switching contexts. In one embodiment, the content object is an HTML file, the first context is the file as it appears in a web browser, and the second context is the file in editable format. In one embodiment, when the web browser is directed to a “context-switch URL,” a modified web server extracts information from the context-switch URL and switches the context from the first context to the second. In one embodiment, a person initiates a context-switch by pushing a button on the web browser. This causes a context-switch URL to be generated and directs the web browser to the context-switch URL.

  • Patent number: 9706013
    Abstract: Embodiments of the invention provide for dynamically generating an interface including conditional content based on runtime variables related to the device on which the content will be presented. Embodiments provide for creating and using runtime variables for showing or hiding data, depending on the type of device that the interface is accessed from. In other words, embodiments allow a designer of the interface to define conditional sections within the interface and the conditions, i.e., values of the runtime variables, upon which those section should be included or excluded from the interface. Based on the definition of these sections and the runtime values of variables associated with those sections, e.g., variables representing a device type, application type, mode, etc. of a client device on which the content will be presented, embodiments can provide an interface tailored to be presented on that type of device.
