Method and device for preventing interruption of on-demand service in internet protocol television system


A method and device for preventing interruption of an on-demand service in an internet protocol television (iptv) system, wherein the method includes: when detecting that a media storage and distribution unit has an ethernet interface faulted, floating ip address of the faulted ethernet interface over a normal ethernet interface; selecting all working-state service data regions occupying the faulted ethernet interface, and switching media code streams corresponding thereto to the normal ethernet interface for transmission. When there is an ethernet interface faulted, the present document can smoothly switch a service from the ethernet interface to another ethernet interface, thus continuously performing an on-demand service without interruption.

System and abstracting sata and/or sas storage media devices via a full duplex queued command interface to increase performance, lower host overhead, and simplify scaling storage media devices and systems


A simplified host accesses sata and sas storage media devices by abstracting the sata and sas protocols with one full duplex protocol that supports full command queuing to each storage media device, whether sata or sas, where the abstraction protocol is performance-centric and supports common high-level read and write access to a pool of storage media devices, each of which may have a sata or sas interface. The abstraction protocol is link-agnostic and may be carried via a multiplicity of direct attach or networked interfaces, including but not limited to pcie, ethernet (e.g., 1 gbe, 10 gbe, 40 gbe, or 100 gbe), infiniband, thunderbolt, firewire, usb, and/or custom interfaces..
