Analytical motion blur rasterization with compression
A rasterizer, based on time-dependent edge equations, computes analytical visibility in order to render accurate motion blur. An oracle-based compression algorithm for the time intervals lowers the frame buffer requirements.
Dark to light watermark without special materials
Methods and systems rasterize a document to produce a bitmap having first pixels of a first color as background uniformly located across a watermark region and second pixels of a second color located in a pattern forming foreground items within the watermark region. The rasterization causes the first pixels to deposit a first marking material (forming the first color) to a first height on the print media, and the rasterization causes the second pixels to deposit a second marking material (forming the second color) to a second height (different from the first height) on the print media.
Image forming managing job data
When, at a time of execution of processing of backup or restoration for job data, raster image data included in the job data is data generated using any state parameter other than a current state parameter, an image forming apparatus according to an embodiment of the present invention executes the processing of backup or restoration without including the raster image data as a target of the processing.. .

Disaster recovery of converged infrastructure platforms
A method, computer and system for the backup and recovery of a converged infrastructure computer system is provided. The method and system provides backup and recovery of the data and applications on the servers themselves, but further provides backup and recovery of the configuration and mapping information of the converged infrastructure computer system itself..
Storage device health status synchronization
One or more techniques and/or systems are provided for storage device health status synchronization. For example, a first health status registry is maintained for a first storage controller at a first storage site.
Survival site load balancing
One or more techniques and/or systems are provided for load balancing between storage controllers. For example, a first storage controller and a second storage controller may be configured at a first storage site according to a high availability configuration, and may be configured as disaster recovery partners for a third storage controller and a fourth storage controller at a second storage site.
