Application number: 17/548,350

The disclosure herein describes enabling transactions from within an extended reality (XR) system using behavioral biometrics. A user using the XR system is detected and behavioral biometric data of the user is automatically collected. A user profile is identified based on the biometric data, wherein the user profile is associated with a subset of content and payment data. Access to the content is provided to the user via the XR system. A transaction request is received that is associated with the content. Based on the transaction request, behavioral biometric data of the user is automatically collected again. The association between the biometric data and the user profile is verified. Based on verifying that the second biometric token is associated with the user profile, a transaction is initiated based on the transaction request, whereby a transaction processing entity is configured to authenticate the user based on the biometric data and facilitate the transaction.

A data center rack assembly includes a rack, an electronic device, and an adjustable air duct. The rack includes a frame defining opposite first and second rack sides spaced apart in a longitudinal direction. The electronic device presents an intake side configured to receive air therethrough for passage into the electronic device. The electronic device is mounted to the frame such that the intake side is disposed intermediately between the rack sides and is spaced from the first rack side to define a longitudinal dimension therebetween. The duct includes relatively shiftable first and second duct sections that extend in the longitudinal direction to cooperatively present an adjustable longitudinal duct length, and a drive mechanism operably coupled to the first and second sections to control relative shifting of the sections in the longitudinal direction to thereby adjust the longitudinal duct length to correspond with the longitudinal dimension.

The disclosure herein describes managing software patches for software applications of computing devices. A release of a software patch associated with a software application of the computing devices is detected. The software patch is analyzed based on patch analysis rules, wherein the patch analysis rules include vulnerability rules configured to indicate whether the released software patch addresses known vulnerabilities. Based on the analysis resulting in approval for installation of the patch, a current test image of the software application is identified, and the patch is applied to the test image to form a patched image. Tests are performed on the patched image, include patch-specific tests. Based on the results of the tests indicating that the patched image passed at least a subset of the tests, the software patch is applied to application instances of the software application on the computing devices, whereby the patch is deployed to the computing devices.
