A recently granted patent (Publication Number: US11874799B1) discloses a content staging system that includes a non-transitory memory, random access memory, at least one processor, and circuitry with a reference resource. This reference resource consists of an execution plan and a job definition specification stored in the non-transitory memory, with the execution plan designed to guide the processor in performing operations such as receiving content, determining memory capacity thresholds, and auto-switching to a file system when content size exceeds memory capacity. Additionally, the system can transform content, encrypt it, include expiration timestamps, eliminate duplication of values, and sort the content based on predefined settings.

Furthermore, the patent describes a computer-implemented method and computer-readable media with similar functionalities as the content staging system. The method involves receiving content, referencing job definition specifications, determining memory capacity thresholds, and switching to a file system if needed. Similar to the system, the method can transform content, encrypt it, include expiration timestamps, eliminate duplication, and sort the content. The computer-readable media, on the other hand, stores the execution plan and job definition specifications, enabling the processor to carry out the operations outlined in the patent claims. Overall, the patent highlights a comprehensive approach to managing content processing efficiently, ensuring optimal memory usage and content organization through a systematic execution plan and job definition specifications.
