Parallel Machines Ltd., Tel Aviv, Israel, has been assigned a patent (9,547,553) developed by Khermosh, Lior, Givataim, Israel, Braverman, Avner, Tel-Aviv, Israel, Shalvi, Ofir, Raanana, Israel, Bar-Or, Ofer, Ramat Gan, Israel, and Zuckerman, Gal, Holon, Israel, for a "data resiliency in a shared memory pool."

The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "Various systems to achieve data resiliency in a shared memory pool are presented. Multiple memory modules are associated with multiple data interfaces, one or multiple erasure-coding interfaces are communicatively connected with the multiple data interfaces, and multiple compute elements are communicatively connected with one or multiple erasure-coding interfaces. Data sets are erasure-coded, and the resulting fragments are stored in random access memory modules distributed throughout the system. Storage in RAM allows real-time fetching of fragments using random-access read cycles and streaming of fragments using random-access write cycles, in which read operations include reconstruction of data sets from fetched data fragments, and write operations allow conversion of data sets into fragments which are then streamed and distributively stored. Distributed memory creates data resiliency to reconstruct original data sets in cases such as data corruption, failure of a memory module, failure of a data interface, or failure of a compute element."

The patent application was filed on March 8, 2015 (14/641,401).
