  • Publication number: 20030233370
    Abstract: Data is stored persistently. At least two different items of the data are stored in two different non-conflicting regions or two different physical clusters. A relationship is maintained between the two different items of data. The relationship enables a process to reach any one of the data items from the other data item. Consistency of the relationship is maintained notwithstanding updates of either or both of the items.

  • Publication number: 20140280398
    Abstract: Among other things, nodes that host database management processes that are part of a distributed data storage system are enabled to form and participate in transport layer features of a communication medium to which the nodes have access. The transport layer features provide as many as trillions of communication channels between pairs of the database management processes, for database management processes that are hosted on fewer than thirty thousand nodes.

  • Publication number: 20140279942
    Abstract: Among other things, a machine-based method is described. The method comprises recording object classes of an object model, producing an object representation for data of two or more data sources based on a mapping of data formats of the data sources to the object classes of the object model, and producing mapped data from the data sources. The mapped data is available in objects of the object classes and is comparable in the object representation. At least two of the data sources have different data formats.

  • Patent number: 9830348
    Abstract: A database is maintained that stores data persistently. Tasks are accepted from task sources. At least some of the tasks have competing requirements for use of regions of the database. Each of the regions includes data that is all either locked or not locked for writing at a given time. Each of the regions is associated with an available processor. For each of the tasks, jobs are defined each of which requires write access to regions that are to be accessed by no more than one of the processors. Jobs are distributed for concurrent execution by the associated processors.

  • Patent number: 9652287
    Abstract: Among other things, requests are received for tasks to be performed in a database. The tasks include tasks that will cause changes in data of the database and other tasks that must be executed on data in the database that is consistent time-wise. At least some of the data that will be changed by the change-causing tasks comprises data that must remain time-wise consistent for the other tasks. The other tasks are executed in the database while the change-causing tasks are also being executed in the database, without requiring a replication or reconfiguration of the database.

  • Publication number: 20150302032
    Abstract: Among other things, there are two or more data sets. Each of the data sets contains data that can be interpreted as records each having data values for data fields. Each of the data sets contains at least some data that is related to data in at least one of the other data sets. The data in different data sets is organized or expressed possibly differently. Each of the data sets is susceptible to a definition of a key for the records of the data set. The data sets are characterized by repetitions of at least one of (a) records, (b) portions of keys, or (c) instances of values for data fields. Information about at least one of the repetitions is provided to a user.
