  • Patent number: 10042685
    Abstract: An extensible single point orchestration system receives service requests from applications. In dependence upon the service request a single third party provider service or multiple third party provider services is identified. When the single third party provider service is identified, the system dynamically adapts a core capability service, using a stored configuration entity, so as to set an appropriate message format and transmit a service call message to an external API of the identified single third party provider service. When multiple third party provider services are identified, the system dynamically adapts the core capability service, using another stored configuration entity, so as to set a respective appropriate message format for parallel data transmission of service call messages to each of the respective identified third party provider services and transmits the service call messages to respective external APIs of each of the third party provider services.

  • Patent number: 10015240
    Abstract: Methods and systems for interface data utilization are described. In one embodiment, a provider server may offer resources and an application server may offer functionality not provided by the resources of the provider server. A user request may be received through the source user interface. A determination may be made whether the user request contains a request to access a functionality that is not offered by the provider but is offered by an application that is communicatively coupled to the provider via a network. In response, an electronic communication may be established between the provider and the application via a network. A policy of the provider may be accessed from a first database, and interface definition data may be accessed from a second database different from the first database. Target interface data may be rendered based on the policy of the provider and the interface definition data.

  • Patent number: 9996484
    Abstract: A system that provides virtualized computing resources may include an enhanced PCIe endpoint device on which an emulation processor emulates PCIe compliant hardware in software. The endpoint device may include host interface circuitry that implements pointer registers and control and status registers for each of multiple transaction ring buffers instantiated in memory on the device. In response to receiving a transaction layer packet that includes a transaction, packet steering circuitry may push the transaction into one of the buffers, dependent on the transaction type, a routing identifier for an emulated device to which it is directed, its traffic class or other criteria. The transaction may be processed in software, emulating the hardware device. The host interface circuitry may generate response completion packets for configuration requests and non-posted transactions, and may return them according to PCIe ordering rules, regardless of the order in which they were processed on the endpoint device.

  • Patent number: 9965327
    Abstract: A telemetry module integrated with an application may include a data collection and analysis engine configured to perform data collection and analysis for reporting to a service associated with the application. The telemetry module may include additional components configured to dynamically scale the data collection and analysis performed by the data collection and analysis engine for a target device such that parameters of the data collection and analysis correspond to resources and capabilities of the target device. For example, a scaling profile manager may receive a profile for a device on which the application is being executed from the service, where the profile defines criteria for the scaling of the data collection and analysis. The scaling profile manager may then determine one or more resources and capabilities of the device, compare the determined resources and capabilities to the criteria, and scale the data collection and analysis based on the comparison.

  • Patent number: 9842011
    Abstract: A target application loads target application's user interface (UI) after an initial preoperational task is completed. A task for visualizing a progress status for the target application is delegated to a source application that is used for launching the target application in a new window. The source application creates a shared object and assigns a unique identifier (ID) to the shared object. The unique ID of the shared object is passed to the target application, when the target application is launched from the source application. The shared object is accessed by the target application during the performance of the initial preoperational task. The target application stores progress status of the initial preoperational task in the shared object. The source application monitors the progress status stored in the shared object and presents it continuously on source application's user interface.
