  • Patent number: 11900102
    Abstract: Systems and methods for data storage device firmware updates in a composable infrastructure are described. Recomposition of a system in a composable infrastructure may include downloading a firmware update to a data storage device, activating the firmware update in the data storage device, and receiving a reset command at the data storage device. The reset command may include a step to flush a virtual-to-physical (V2P) mapping table from a volatile memory in the data storage device to non-volatile memory devices in the data storage device. Responsive to a flag that is set and the received reset command, the data storage device may forgo the step of flushing the V2P mapping table.

  • Patent number: 11880569
    Abstract: A clock mode configuration circuit for a memory device. A memory system includes any number of memory devices serially connected to each other, where each memory device receives a clock signal. The clock signal can be provided either in parallel to all the memory devices or serially from memory device to memory device through a common clock input. The clock mode configuration circuit in each memory device is set to a parallel mode for receiving the parallel clock signal, and to a serial mode for receiving a source synchronous clock signal from a prior memory device. Depending on the set operating mode, the data input circuits will be configured for the corresponding data signal format, and the corresponding clock input circuits will be either enabled or disabled. The parallel mode and the serial mode is set by sensing a voltage level of a reference voltage provided to each memory device.

  • Patent number: 11868793
    Abstract: Systems and methods are taught for providing customers of a cloud computing service to control when updates affect the services provided to the customers. Because multiple customers share the cloud's infrastructure, each customer may have conflicting preferences for when an update and associated downtime occurs. Preventing and resolving conflicts between the preferences of multiple customers while providing them with input for scheduling a planned update may reduce the inconvenience posed by updates. Additionally, the schedule for the update may be transmitted to customers so that they can prepare for the downtime of services associated with the update.

  • Patent number: 11468362
    Abstract: We describe a computing machine, called an ex-machine, that uses self-modification and randomness to enhance the computation. The name ex-machine is derived from the latin extra machinam because its can evolve as it computes so that its complexity increases without an upper bound. In an embodiment, an ex-machine program can compute languages that a Turing or standard machine cannot compute. In an embodiment, the ex-machine has three types of instructions: standard instructions, meta instructions and random instructions. In an embodiment, the meta instruction self-modify the machine as it is executing so that new instructions are added. In an embodiment, the standard instructions are expressed in the C programming language or VHDL dataflow language. Random instructions take random measurements from a random source. In an embodiment, the random source produces quantum events which are measured. In an embodiment, an ex-machine receives a computer program as input, containing only standard instructions.

  • Patent number: 11307787
    Abstract: Technologies for generating manifest data for a sled include a sled to generate manifest data indicative of one or more characteristics of the sled (e.g., hardware resources, firmware resources, a configuration of the sled, or a health of sled components). The sled is also to associate an identifier with the manifest data. The identifier uniquely identifies the sled from other sleds. Additionally, the sled is to send the manifest data and the associated identifier to a server. The sled may also detect a change in the hardware resources, firmware resources, the configuration, or component health of the sled. The sled may also generate an update of the manifest data based on the detected change, where the update specifies the detected change in the hardware resources, firmware resources, the configuration, or component health of the sled. The sled may also send the update of the manifest data to the server.

  • Patent number: 11303664
    Abstract: In one embodiment, a device in a network captures domain name system (DNS) response data from a DNS response sent by a DNS service to a client in the network. The device captures session data for an encrypted session of the client. The device makes a determination that the encrypted session is malicious by using the captured DNS response data and the captured session data as input to a machine learning-based or rule-based classifier. The device performs a mediation action in response to the determination that the encrypted session is malicious.

  • Patent number: 11288176
    Abstract: The present disclosure involves systems, software, and computer implemented methods for executing integration scenario regression tests in customer landscapes. One example method includes identifying a request to create a test case for an integration scenario for a cloud platform customer. The test case is created for the scenario, including enabling the test case to run in an isolated customer environment specific to the customer. An update to the cloud platform is identified. The update is provisionally applied to the cloud platform for the customer. The test case is executed in the isolated customer environment, to test the scenario for the customer. A determination is made as to whether execution of the test case succeeded. In response to determining successful test case execution, the update to the cloud platform is finalized for the customer. In response to determining unsuccessful test case execution, the update is rolled back for the customer.
