  • Patent number: 11973693
    Abstract: A computer-implemented method for distributing packets for asymmetrical traffic by a network interface card (NIC). The computer-implemented method includes obtaining information of an incoming packet incoming from a source endpoint behind a stateful service and accessing a destination endpoint using a network address translation (NAT) service, hashing the information to calculate queue identification for the packet to direct the packet to the queue associated therewith, executing a NAT on an outgoing packet associated with the incoming packet to allow for retrieval of the queue identification from a header of the outgoing packet, sending the outgoing packet to the destination endpoint, which is responsive with a return packet, stamping the queue identification to the return packet upon the return packet being transmitted back from the destination endpoint and the queue identification being retrieved and instantiating an RSS override operation to redirect the return packet to the queue on the response.

  • Patent number: 11824940
    Abstract: This disclosure describes, in part, methods and techniques for providing network applications. For instance, remote system(s) may generate a link that provides access to a network application. After generating the link, the remote system(s) may provide the link to a device of a source, such as a user, a developer, or a third-party service. The source may then use the device to share the link with a user. For example, the source may use the device to send a message that includes the link, post the link on a website, or share the link using a social media platform. The user may then use a device to view and select the link. Based on selecting the link, the remote system(s) may perform one or more actions. For example, the remote system(s) may create a session for the network application and provide the device with data to connect to the session.
