Consumer cloud storage (CCS) services have become popular among users for storing and synchronizing files via apps installed on their devices. A single CCS, however, has intrinsic limitations on networking performance, service reliability, and data security. To overcome these limitations, we present UniDrive, a CCS app that synergizes multiple CCSs(More)
With wide application of virtualization technology, tenants are able to access isolated cloud services by renting the shared resources in datacenters. Unlike resources such as CPU and memory, datacenter network, which relies on traditional transport-layer protocols, suffers unfairness due to a lack of VM-level network isolation. In this paper, we propose(More)
BACKGROUND Surgical resection is shown to present the best chance of cure in the treatment of intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma (ICC). However, the appropriate length of the negative margin remains unclear. The aim of the present meta-analysis was to investigate whether a clear margin of 10 mm or more (≥10 mm) conferred any survival benefit over a margin of(More)
—In recent years, Dropbox, Google, and Microsoft have been competing in the market of consumer cloud storage (CCS) services. While once the key comparative metric, storage capacity per user has outgrown the needs of most users. Today, third-party applications based on CCS's RESTful Web APIs are becoming a primary way for users to utilize their expanded(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE Surgery carries the best hope for cure in the treatment of cholangiocarcinoma (CC), whereas surgical outcome is not fully satisfactory. Bio-molecular markers have been used to improve tumor staging and prognosis prediction. Mucin antigen MUC4 (MUC4) has been implicated as a marker for poor survival in various tumors. However,(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE Inflammation is deemed to play critical roles in tumor progression and metastasis, and an increased neutrophil-lymphocyte ratio (NLR) has been reported to correlate with poor survivals in various malignancies. However, association between NLR elevation and survival outcome in patients with colorectal liver metastasis (CRLM) remains(More)
It remains unclear whether hepatectomy for colorectal liver metastasis (CRLM) should be performed as anatomical resection (AR) or nonanatomical resection (NAR). The aim of this study is to compare the short- and long-term outcomes of AR and NAR for CRLM. PubMed, Web of Science, EMBASE and the Cochrane Library were systematically searched to identify(More)
