The abstract of the patent (10684799) published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: A plurality of computing devices are communicatively coupled to each other via a network, and each of the plurality of computing devices is operably coupled to one or more of a plurality of storage devices. A plurality of failure resilient address spaces are distributed across the plurality of storage devices such that each of the plurality of failure resilient address spaces spans a plurality of the storage devices. Each computing device is operable to maintain a two-level registry that records changes in the memory. When data is read from memory, recent changes to the data may be applied according to one or more corresponding registry blocks. Thus, the two-level registry enables the plurality of computing devices to postpone and/or consolidate writes to memory - e.g., non-volatile flash drives.
