OpenVault, a leading source of revenue and data-driven network enhancement and actionable insights solutions for the broadband industry, announced that it was recently granted a patent for techniques that enable faster data retrieval and processing.
U.S. Patent No. 11,275,594, “Intelligent Data Storage and Processing Using FPGA Devices,” aims to eliminate the bottlenecks that increasingly occur as the amount of data flowing through systems exceeds the available processing power.
The patent describes a method in which an array of field-programmable gates (FPGAs) can be specifically configured to receive and perform pipelined processing on streaming data in such a way as to accelerate seek-and-fetch functionality.
While indexing data can speed up recovery, log information is often not indexed. Developing inverted indexes needed to correlate telemetry and logs to feed machine learning models is a difficult task for general-purpose processors. This technology allows a user to quickly deploy a custom FPGA-based processor designed to solve this problem on unstructured data on the fly.
