U.S. Patents Awarded to Inventors in Michigan (Jan. 30)

(Targeted News Service Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Targeted News Service Targeted News Service ALEXANDRIA, Va., Jan. 30 -- The following federal patents were awarded to inventors in Michigan.

*** International Business Machines Assigned Patent for Provisioning Storage-optimized Virtual Machines Within a Virtual Desktop Environment ALEXANDRIA, Va., Jan. 30 -- International Business Machines, Armonk, N.Y., has been assigned a patent (8,365,167) developed by four co-inventors for "provisioning storage-optimized virtual machines within a virtual desktop environment." The co-inventors are Kirk A. Beaty, Goldens Bridge, N.Y., Andrzej Kochut, Elmsford, N.Y., Daniel Salinas, Farmington Hills, Mich., and Charles Otto Schulz, Ridgefield, Conn.



The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "A computer implemented method, a computer program product, and data processing system clone virtual machines in a virtual desktop environment. A request to clone a new virtual machine is intercepted, wherein the request was initially sent to a virtual management server. Responsive to intercepting the request, the new virtual machine is cloned from a snapshot of a master virtual machine. A delta file is created for the new virtual machine, wherein the delta file includes a base disk reference and a copied delta file. The new virtual machine is configured to read a base disk image from a snapshot of the master virtual machine. The new virtual machine is configured to write data to the copied delta file in the delta file." The patent application was filed on April 15, 2008 (12/103,606). The full-text of the patent can be found at http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser Sect1=PTO2&Sect2=HITOFF&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsearch-bool.html&r=1&f=G&l=50&co1=AND&d=PTXT&s1=8,365,167&OS=8,365,167&RS=8,365,167 Written by Satyaban Rath; edited by Hemanta Panigrahi.

*** Verizon Business Network Services Assigned Patent ALEXANDRIA, Va., Jan. 30 -- Verizon Business Network Services, Basking Ridge, N.J., has been assigned a patent (8,364,800) developed by four co-inventors for an "automated message handling system and process." The co-inventors are Richard S. Bice, Severna Park, Md., Jon P. Brusseau, Clinton Township, Mich., Richard L. Lacourse, Laurel, Md., and Herbert T. Raffaele, Springfield, Va.

The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "The present invention relates to a system and process for resolving messages from application components to back-end systems. The system comprises a standardized message definition which uses a tagged field format through which application components communicate to a message handler. The message handler applies rules that define actions to be taken and recipients of information based on the contents of the message. The rules may be pre-defined by a customer associated with an application component generating a message, based on common rules applied to components generally, or based upon service rules associated with the service provider, such as level of service subscriptions or other characteristics, or based on a combination of any or all of the above bases. By utilizing published message formats, the present invention provides a platform independent framework for exposing application hosting back-end systems to customer applications." The patent application was filed on Feb. 4, 2008 (12/025,609). The full-text of the patent can be found at http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser Sect1=PTO1&Sect2=HITOFF&d=PALL&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsrchnum.htm&r=1&f=G&l=50&s1=83,64,800.PN.&OS=PN/83,64,800&RS=PN/83,64,800 Written by Amal Ahmed; edited by Jaya Anand.

*** University of Michigan Assigned Patent ALEXANDRIA, Va., Jan. 30 -- The University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, Mich., has been assigned a patent (8,365,110) developed by four co-inventors for an "automatic error diagnosis and correction for RTL designs." The co-inventors are Kai-Hui Chang, Andover, Mass., Ilya Wagner, Bloomfield, Mich., Igor Markov, Ann Arbor, Mich., and Valeria Bertacco, Ann Arbor, Mich.

The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "A computer executable tool facilitates integrated circuit design and debugging by working directly at the Register Transfer Level, where most design activities take place. The tool determines when an integrated circuit design produces incorrect output responses for a given set of input vectors. The tool accesses the expected responses and returns the signal paths in the integrated circuit that are responsible for the errors along with suggested changes for fixing the errors. The tool may operate at the RTL, which is above the gate-level abstraction which means that the design errors will be much more readily understood to the designer, and may improve scalability and efficiency." The patent application was filed on May 27, 2008 (12/127,523). The full-text of the patent can be found at http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser Sect1=PTO2&Sect2=HITOFF&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsearch-bool.html&r=1&f=G&l=50&co1=AND&d=PTXT&s1=8,365,110&OS=8,365,110&RS=8,365,110 Written by Satyaban Rath; edited by Hemanta Panigrahi.

*** Hewlett-Packard Development Assigned Patent for Processing Client Requests for Common Services According to One or More Canonical Forms ALEXANDRIA, Va., Jan. 30 -- Hewlett-Packard Development, Houston, has been assigned a patent (8,364,788) developed by four co-inventors for "processing client requests for common services according to one or more canonical forms." The co-inventors are Ivan Lomelli, Boynton Beach, Fla., Sanjay P. Lobo, Allen, Texas, Steven D. Witkop, Clinton Township, Mich., and Alexander Orlov, Caringbah, Australia.

The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "In certain embodiments, a method for processing client requests for common services according to one or more canonical forms includes receiving from a computer system associated with a particular client a request to provide a common service and converting at least a portion of the request according to a canonical form. The method further includes accessing configuration data for the particular client specifying one or more processes for providing the common service to the particular client, and executing, based on the configuration data for the particular client, the one or more processes to communicate with a vendor-specific solution for providing the common service. At least a portion of a response from the vendor-specific solution is converted into the canonical form. Based on the configuration data for the particular client and the response from the vendor-specific solution, an output for providing the common service to the particular client is determined. The output is transmitted to the computer system associated with the particular client." The patent application was filed on March 13, 2008 (12/047,855). The full-text of the patent can be found at http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser Sect1=PTO1&Sect2=HITOFF&d=PALL&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsrchnum.htm&r=1&f=G&l=50&s1=83,64,788.PN.&OS=PN/83,64,788&RS=PN/83,64,788 Written by Amal Ahmed; edited by Jaya Anand.

The transformed integer value for each condition state in binary form is at least two bit errors removed from any transformed integer value for an identified incompatible condition state in binary form." The patent application was filed on Jan. 3, 2007 (11/619,203). The full-text of the patent can be found at http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser Sect1=PTO1&Sect2=HITOFF&d=PALL&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsrchnum.htm&r=1&f=G&l=50&s1=8,365,037.PN.&OS=PN/8,365,037&RS=PN/8,365,037 Written by Kusum Sangma; edited by Anand Kumar.
