Robert C. Abrams has filed for patents to protect the following inventions. This listing includes patent applications that are pending as well as patents that have already been granted by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).
Abstract: A computer-implemented method for monitoring server stability based on a stability time specification of a server includes specifying a stability time for the server, wherein the stability time is defined as a time between a starting state of the server and a stability point of the server. The server activity is monitored by an availability manager to determine an availability status of the server. Responsive to the server activity progressing to the stability point within the stability time, an embodiment determines that the server is stable. Responsive to the server activity failing to progress to the stability point within the stability time, an embodiment determines that the server is unreliable.

Abstract: Method, system, apparatus, and computer program and computer program product provide on-demand, scalable computational resources to application providers over a distributed network and system. Resources are made available based on demand for applications. Application providers are charged fees based on the amount of resources utilized to satisfy the needs of the application. In providing compute resources, method and apparatus is capable of rapidly activating a plurality of instances of the applications as demand increases and to halt instances as demand drops. Application providers are charged based on metered amount of computational resources utilized in processing their applications. Application providers access the network to distribute applications onto network to utilize distributed compute resources for processing of the applications. Application providers are further capable of monitoring, updating and replacing distributed applications.
