Adding generic computer parts and functions to a container does not elevate the claims to eligibility. Rather, we find that the steps of the claims, taken both individually and as an ordered combination, do not transform the nature of the claim into a patent-eligible application. See Affinity Labs of Tex., LLC v. DIRECTV, LLC, 838 F.3d 1253, 1259 (Fed. Cir. 2016) (citing Alice, 134 S. Ct. at 2358; Mayo, 132 S. Ct. at 1294) (“Limiting the field of use of the abstract idea to a particular existing technological environment does not render any claims any less abstract.”)
