  • Patent number: 11570048
    Abstract: A system is presented for provisioning resources on a target cloud platform based on a platform-independent specification of a data center. The system identifies data center entities represented within the platform-independent declarative specification and generates data structures and metadata representations of the data center entities. The system then generates instructions for provisioning services or deploying applications for creating one or more services on the target cloud platform based on the data structures and metadata representations of the data center entities according to the declarative specification. The system sends the generated instructions for execution on the target cloud computing platform, where the target cloud computing platform executes the instructions to generate the data center. The system provides users with access to the computing resources of the data center created by the cloud computing platform.

  • Patent number: 11569615
    Abstract: A cable connector includes a case, a fastener and an unlocking member. At least one side of the case has a texture area with a guide surface which is a smooth surface. The fastener is attached on the case and extended with a flexible arm. Part of the flexible arm is attached to the guide surface. The unlocking member includes a handle and a pushing block connected to the handle. The pushing block is sandwiched between the case and the flexible arm. When the unlocking member is pulled, the pushing block moves along the guide surface to separate the flexible arm from the case. When the unlocking member is released, the pushing block is pressed by the flexible arm to slide and return along the guide surface. The pushing block may return to original position without elasticity of a spring to simplify the structure and save the costs.

  • Patent number: 11565644
    Abstract: A passenger restraint system of a vehicle includes a passenger restraint article with an interface, and a locking device that secures the interface. In some embodiments, the vehicle includes a vertical channel that enables the locking device to travel up and down. The locking device may include a camera that enables the locking device to align with the interface, and once aligned, the locking device secures the interface. In additional or alternative embodiments, the locking device includes two C-bars and a biasing element that urges the locking device into an open position. When the passenger sits or leans against the opened C-bars, the force caused by the interface on the C-bars overcomes the force applied by the biasing element, urging the C-bars into a closed position. The locking device is then secured by engaging a locking bar that pushes against a surface of the C-bars.
