In one embodiment, a first agent generates a request to write to a cache line of a cache over a first ring of a computing platform. A second agent that receives the write request forwards it to a third agent over the first ring of the computing platform. In turn, a third agent (e.g., a home agent) receives data corresponding to the write request over a second, different ring of the computing platform and writes the data to the cache. Other embodiments are also disclosed." The patent application was filed on Sept. 25, 2010 (12/890,650).

*** International Business Machines Assigned Patent for Concurrent Upgrade of All Components in Storage Subsystems ALEXANDRIA, Va., June 19 -- International Business Machines, Armonk, N.Y., has been assigned a patent (8,468,517) developed by four co-inventors for "concurrent upgrade of all components in storage subsystems." The co-inventors are Haim Helman, Tel Aviv, Israel, Kariel Sandler, Tel Aviv, Israel, Shemer Schwartz, Tel Aviv, Israel, and Moshe Yanai, Waltham, Mass.

The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "A plurality of upgraded components associated with an upgraded storage subsystem replaces a plurality of existing components associated with an existing storage subsystem. Support for a verify I/O command is created. A target volume is created in the upgraded storage subsystem having a same volume identification as a source volume. For a command received on the at least one of the plurality of upgraded components, the verify I/O command is invoked on at least one of a comparable one of the plurality of existing components. If the command is verified, the command is driven. The at least one of the plurality of upgraded components disguises a true volume identification of the target volume from the at least one of the plurality of existing components." The patent application was filed on April 19, 2012 (13/451,346).

*** Microsoft Assigned Patent for Transformation of Sequential Access Control Lists Utilizing Certificates ALEXANDRIA, Va., June 19 -- Microsoft, Redmond, Wash., has been assigned a patent (8,468,579) developed by six co-inventors for a "transformation of sequential access control lists utilizing certificates." The co-inventors are Carl Melvin Ellison, Seattle, Paul J. Leach, Seattle, Butler Wright Lampson, Cambridge, Mass., Melissa W. Dunn, Woodinville, Wash., Ravindra Nath Pandya, Clyde Hill, Wash., and Charles William Kaufman, Sammamish, Wash.

The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "The subject disclosure pertains to systems and methods that facilitate managing access control utilizing certificates. The systems and methods described herein are directed to mapping an access policy as expressed in an access control list to a set of certificates. The set of certificates can be used to grant access to resources in the manner described by the ACL. The certificates can be distributed to entities for use in obtaining access to resources. Entities can present certificates to resources as evidence of their right to access the resources. The access logic of the sequential ACL can be transformed or mapped to a set of order independent certificates. In particular, each entry, position of the entry in the list and any preceding entries can be analyzed. The analysis can be used to generate order independent certificates that provide access in accordance with the access policy communicated in the ACL." The patent application was filed on June 15, 2007 (11/764,034).

*** BRIDGE Energy Group Assigned Patent ALEXANDRIA, Va., June 19 -- BRIDGE Energy Group, Marlborough, Mass., has been assigned a patent (8,468,272) developed by Sudhir K. Giroti, Wellesley, Mass., for an "enterprise smart grid and demand management platform and methods for application development and management." The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "A computer-implemented platform server and method is provided for energy management operations in a Smart Grid environment. The platform server includes an application module configured to operate any of a plurality of Smart Grid Applications. A consumer-side module is configured for bi-directional communication with a plurality of consumer-side intelligent appliances. An Operations Technology (OT) module is configured for communication with an electrical grid Energy Management System (EMS). A translation module is coupled to, and configured to translate data received from, the application, consumer-side, and OT modules, so that the platform is configured to selectively receive, translate, and transmit data from and among any of said application, consumer-side, and OT modules, to facilitate automated energy management operations in a Smart Grid environment."
