  • Patent number: 10693967
    Abstract: Embodiments of the present invention relate to a data connection establishment method, a server, and a mobile terminal. After receiving a connection request sent by a first client, a server determines whether a connection to a second client belonging to a same local area network with the first client has already been established; if yes, the server returns, to the first client, a reply message used to instruct the first client to establish a connection to the second client; and disconnects from the first client after the connection between the first client and the second client is established.

  • Patent number: 10686677
    Abstract: Methods and apparatus for flexible capacity pool reservations for network-accessible resources are disclosed. A system includes a plurality of resources of a provider network, and a resource manager. The resource manager receives a reservation modification request from a client that has an existing reservation for an original resource capacity and an original reservation duration. The modification request specifies a desired resource capacity. The reservation manager identifies resources to provide the desired capacity, and determines pricing components for the requested modification based on the difference between the desires resource capacity and the original capacity and on the remaining portion of the duration of the existing reservation. The resource manager modifies the reservation as requested and notifies the client regarding the pricing components.

  • Patent number: 10666514
    Abstract: A peer policy object named with a policy enforcement metric context identifier is created at a first policy enforcement point (PEP) platform of a group of peered PEP platforms. The peer policy object uniquely identifies a registered service policy to be enforced during runtime as a shared runtime policy enforcement activity by the group of peered PEP platforms within a peered policy enforcement deployment. The peer policy object named with the policy enforcement metric context identifier is deployed to at least one other peered PEP platform within the peered policy enforcement deployment to initiate the shared runtime policy enforcement activity by the group of peered PEP platforms. At least one runtime policy enforcement metric associated with runtime enforcement of the registered service policy is shared with the at least one other peered PEP platform during runtime using the policy enforcement metric context identifier.

  • Patent number: 10663314
    Abstract: Aspects of the disclosure relate to processing remotely captured sensor data. A computing platform having at least one processor, a communication interface, and memory may receive, via the communication interface, from a user computing device, sensor data captured by the user computing device using one or more sensors built into the user computing device. Subsequently, the computing platform may analyze the sensor data received from the user computing device by executing one or more data processing modules. Then, the computing platform may generate trip record data based on analyzing the sensor data received from the user computing device and may store the trip record data in a trip record database. In addition, the computing platform may generate user record data based on analyzing the sensor data received from the user computing device and may store the user record data in a user record database.

  • Patent number: 10659317
    Abstract: Techniques for dynamically adapting cloud applications are described. A current value of a Key Performance Indicator (KPI) of an executing cloud service instance of a cloud application is detected. A determination is made as to whether the current value of the KPI is unacceptable (e.g., either it is outside of an acceptable range or is within an adaptation region). If the current value of the KPI is unacceptable, a first application programming interface (API) is invoked to request a cloud service instance monitor to adapt the cloud service instance to operate within an acceptable KPI range. If the cloud service instance monitor was unsuccessful, the unacceptable KPI is escalated to the cloud service monitor for the type of the cloud service instance. If the cloud service monitor is unsuccessful, the unacceptable KPI is escalated to the application monitor.

  • Patent number: 10637918
    Abstract: A high availability and load balanced content delivery system and method. A cloud computing content delivery system is provided including multiple content delivery servers (CDSs) configured to deliver content to multiple client devices. The client devices are configured to maintain a source list identifying the multiple CDSs and a primary CDS. The client devices send requests (e.g., yum requests) to the CDS for the mirror list. The client device then uses the mirror list and sends content requests to a first entry on the mirror list. Each CDS is configured to update the mirror list by applying a load balancing algorithm and provide the mirror list to a client device in the event that one or more CDSs are unavailable.
