  • Patent number: 11561878
    Abstract: Examples described relate to determining a future operation failure in a cloud system. In an example, a historical utilization of resources for performing an operation in a cloud system may be determined. A current utilization of resources in the cloud system may be determined. Based on the historical utilization of resources for performing the operation in the cloud system and the current utilization of resources in the cloud system, a determination may be made whether a future performance of the operation in the cloud system is likely to be a failure. In response to a determination that the future performance of the operation in the cloud system is likely to be a failure, an alert may be generated.

  • Patent number: 11561812
    Abstract: Described herein is a system and method for flow state save/restore of a virtual filtering platform. A first instance of a driver manages policy and flow state for ongoing flows between client device(s) and virtual machine(s). The virtual filtering platform is transitioned from the first instance of a driver to a second instance of the driver by serializing the policy and state for the ongoing flows on the first instance of the driver using a one pass algorithm. The serialized policy and state for the ongoing flows can be de-serialized with the ongoing flows re-established and/or reconciled on the second instance of the driver in accordance with the de-serialized policy and state for the plurality of ongoing flows. In some embodiments, a memory management technique can use a single operating system memory allocation call to allocate memory for the transition, with the technique managing utilization of the allocation memory.

  • Patent number: 11537421
    Abstract: Computer systems and methods are disclosed to implement a virtual machine monitor (VMM) that stores cryptographic keys for guest virtual machines (VMs) and securely executes cryptographic operations on the VMs' behalf using the stored cryptographic keys. The cryptographic keys are maintained in a key store that is accessible to the VMM but not accessible to the guest VMs. The cryptographic operations are executed in a manner that does not reveal the cryptographic keys to the guest VMs. In embodiments, the guest VMs may invoke the cryptographic operations via a device driver, a memory access interface, or some other mechanism. Advantageously, the guest VMs cannot obtain the cryptographic keys in their own memory space, so that the keys cannot be exfiltrated from the guest VMs. Embodiments of the VMM may be used to implement cryptographic operations such as request signing and verification, data encryption and decryption, and others.

  • Patent number: 11507396
    Abstract: Techniques perform storage management. In accordance with such techniques, in response to determining that there is an abnormal process in a process group of an application, and a first size of storage space occupied by the abnormal process exceeds a first threshold, an abnormal process is terminated. A second size of storage space occupied by other processes than the abnormal process in the process group after the abnormal process is terminated is determined. In response to the second size exceeding a second threshold, at least one process in the process group to reduce the second size is terminated, where the at least one process is different from the abnormal process.

  • Patent number: 11496436
    Abstract: The disclosure provides an approach for eliminating issues associated with the use of an L2 extension and ARP calls after migrating a virtual machine from one host to another host. The approach involves placing nodes within a network within their own subnetworks, each subnetwork having an IP address range of one address. Placing nodes into subnets of one avoids intra-subnet forwarding, eliminating the need for ARP calls and for L2 extensions.

  • Patent number: 11487591
    Abstract: Provided is a system for automatically generating a set of parameters that can be used to execute a user application on a cluster of compute instances on behalf of a user, where the set of parameters specifies the one or more container images that need to be executed as part of executing the user application. For example, the user may specify a set of container images that are part of the user application, and the system may automatically determine the parameters that define the computing environment in which the user application is to be executed, such as the resource allocation and networking configuration parameters, without the user having to provide such parameters to the system. These parameters can be packaged into the set of parameters (also referred to herein as a task definition), which can be used in future executions of the user application.

  • Patent number: 11487570
    Abstract: Described is a system (and method) that provides the ability to create an endpoint to allow cloud-based components to access services directly using network infrastructure of a cloud system. To provide such an ability, access connections from components of a production system to the cloud system may be monitored to derive a storage service and a datastore based on portions of a domain name. The derived storage service and datastore are then used to determine configuration settings required to automatically create a service endpoint. The service endpoint may then be deployed within the cloud system allowing the cloud-based component to access the storage service directly. Accordingly, the system provides the ability to automatically configure and deploy service endpoints by leveraging information derived from monitoring network access connections between a production environment and a cloud environment.

  • Patent number: 11487584
    Abstract: Apparatus and associated methods relate to constructing a resource and attribute tasking solution to complete a user's objective with resource and attribute characteristics defining the tasked objects, in response to receiving a task definition, and satisfying a task definition constraint. An object includes of a set of resource and attribute dimensions each of which have a set of possible values. A tasking solution is the union of all valid solution vectors in the dimension space. The solution identifies all valid values to present to a user or other agent to make further decisions on further constraining resource and attribute characteristics for a final materializable tasking. In an illustrative example, the objective may be mapping resource supply to task demand. The task demand may be, for example, delivering a database-as-a-service platform configured based on rules generated to satisfy task definition capacity constraints.

  • Patent number: 11474848
    Abstract: A hypervisor on a destination host receives a request to migrate a virtual machine (VM) from a source host to the destination host and determines a total amount of memory associated with the VM on the source host. The hypervisor on the destination host allocates one or more memory pages in a page table on the destination host to satisfy the total amount of memory associated with the VM on the source host, where the one or more memory pages are to be associated with the VM on the destination host. Responsive to determining that the one or more memory pages have been allocated on the destination host, the hypervisor on the destination host initiates migration of the VM from the source host to the destination host.
