MULTI-TENANT AUTHORIZATION FRAMEWORK IN A DATA MANAGEMENT AND STORAGE CLUSTER

Rubrik, Inc., Palo Alto,...

1. In a data management and storage (DMS) cluster comprising peer DMS nodes and a distributed data store implemented across the peer DMS nodes, a method for authorizing actions by a user on a resource of a multi-tenant environment stored in the distributed data store, the method comprising:determining user authorizations associated with the user, the user authorizations defining privileges of the user on resources of the multi-tenant environment;
determining an organization associated with the user;
determining organization authorizations associated with the organization, the organization authorizations defining resources of the multi-tenant environment that belong to the organization;
determining whether the user authorizations and the organization authorizations indicate that a first action by the user on the resource is authorized;
responsive to determining that the first action by the user on the resource is authorized, executing the action on the resource, wherein the resource is a virtual machine, and executing the action on the resource includes capturing a first snapshot of the virtual machine;
storing the first snap shot in a section of the distributed data store associated with a particular DMS node among the peer DMS nodes;
assigning a second action to the particular DMS node among the peer DMS nodes, the second action including capturing a second snapshot of the virtual machine, and comparing the first and second snapshots; and
decomposing the captured snapshots into images; and
storing the images in a data structure in the distributed data store.

COMMAND CONTROL IN A MULTI-SERVO FEEDBACK CONTROL SYSTEM

UBTECH Robotics Corp., S...

1. A command control in a multi-servo feedback control system comprising a main controller and a plurality of servos electrically connected to the main controller, the command control comprising:sending, from the main controller, a first action command to the servos via serial data bus, acquiring preset delay time by the servos, performing actions by the servos according to the first action command, and sending feedback information by the servos to the main controller after the preset delay time, wherein the preset delay time of the plurality of servos are different from each other, the feedback information is configured to identify work status of the servos;
sending, from the main controller, a second action command, and determining, by the servos, whether the second action command is valid;
in response to the actions corresponding to the first action command being not performed by one of the servos, determining that the second action command is valid, performing, by said one of the servos, actions corresponding to the second action command, and sending the feedback information to the main controller after the preset delay time; and
in response to the actions corresponding to the first action command being performed by the servos, determining that the second action command is not valid, and masking the second action command, by the servos;
wherein the second action command is sent by the main controller, in response to the feedback information from any one of the servos are not fully received by the main controller within a preset time period after the first action command is sent.
