11740 results about "File system" patented technology

In computing, a file system or filesystem (often abbreviated to fs), controls how data is stored and retrieved. Without a file system, information placed in a storage medium would be one large body of data with no way to tell where one piece of information stops and the next begins. By separating the data into pieces and giving each piece a name, the information is easily isolated and identified. Taking its name from the way paper-based information systems are named, each group of data is called a "file". The structure and logic rules used to manage the groups of information and their names is called a "file system".

Client installation and execution system for streamed applications

A client installation and execution system for streamed applications requires the user or administrator to obtain a subscription to the streamed application program from a subscription server before installation of the streamed application program begins. The client then obtains an encrypted access token for the streamed application program from a license server upon acknowledgment of a valid license, receives an installation information block from the server, and installs the proper icons, aliases, and description onto the client that give the user the proper look and feel of the original application program. A file spoofer is installed on the client that redirects file accesses from the client's local file system to the streaming server's file system. A registry spoofer is provided on the client for intercepting all registry calls on the client and redirecting calls that manipulate certain registries to an alternate path specified in a registry database on the client. An application page cache is also provided on the client that is managed by a cache manager that requests application pages of the streamed application program from the server. During execution of the streamed application program, page requests are generated and the cache manager requests any application pages from the server that are not resident in the application page cache and places the requested application pages in the application page cache.

Clustered file management for network resources

Methods for operating a network as a clustered file system is disclosed. The methods involve client load rebalancing, distributed Input and Output (I/O) and resource load rebalancing. Client load rebalancing refers to the ability of a client enabled with processes in accordance with the current invention to remap a path through a plurality of nodes to a resource. Distributed I/O refers to the methods on the network which provide concurrent input/output through a plurality of nodes to resources. Resource rebalancing includes remapping of pathways between nodes, e.g. servers, and resources, e.g. volumes/file systems. The network includes client nodes, server nodes and resources. Each of the resources couples to at least two of the server nodes. The method for operating comprising the acts of: redirecting an I/O request for a resource from a first server node coupled to the resource to a second server node coupled to the resource; and splitting the I/O request at the second server node into an access portion and a data transfer portion and passing the access portion to a corresponding administrative server node for the resource, and completing at the second server nodes subsequent to receipt of an access grant from the corresponding administrative server node a data transfer for the resource. In an alternate embodiment of the invention the methods may additionally include the acts of: detecting a change in an availability of the server nodes; and rebalancing the network by applying a load balancing function to the network to re-assign each of the available resources to a corresponding available administrative server node responsive to the detecting act.

File server system using connection-oriented protocol and sharing data sets among data movers

A first data mover computer services data access requests from a network client, and a second data mover computer is coupled to the first data mover computer for servicing data access requests from the first data mover computer. The first data mover computer uses a connection-oriented protocol to obtain client context information and to respond to a session setup request from the client by authenticating the client. Then the first data mover computer responds to a file system connection request from the client by forwarding the client context information and the file system connection request to the second data mover computer. Then the first data mover computer maintains a connection between the first data mover computer and the second data mover computer when the client accesses the file system and the first data mover computer passes file access requests from the client to the second data mover computer and returns responses to the file access requests from the second data mover computer to the client. In a preferred embodiment, the connection-oriented protocol is the Common Internet File System (CIFS) Protocol, and multiple clients share a Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) connection between the first data mover computer and the second data mover computer by allocation of virtual channels within the shared TCP connection and multiplexing of data packets of the virtual channels over the shared TCP connection.

Intelligent network streaming and execution system for conventionally coded applications

An intelligent network streaming and execution system for conventionally coded applications provides a system that partitions an application program into page segments by observing the manner in which the application program is conventionally installed. A minimal portion of the application program is installed on a client system and the user launches the application in the same ways that applications on other client file systems are started. An application program server streams the page segments to the client as the application program executes on the client and the client stores the page segments in a cache. Page segments are requested by the client from the application server whenever a page fault occurs from the cache for the application program. The client prefetches page segments from the application server or the application server pushes additional page segments to the client based on the pattern of page segment requests for that particular application. The user subscribes and unsubscribes to application programs, whenever the user accesses an application program a securely encrypted access token is obtained from a license server if the user has a valid subscription to the application program. The application server begins streaming the requested page segments to the client when it receives a valid access token from the client. The client performs server load balancing across a plurality of application servers. If the client observes a non-response or slow response condition from an application server or license server, it switches to another application or license server.
