  • Patent number: 11954512
    Abstract: A control system (10) includes, for each type of Virtual Network Function (VNF), a VNF compatibility condition indicating a condition of allocation of resources by which the VNF corresponding to the type is allowed to coexist with other VNFs in an identical computer, and resource usage information indicating resources in use by the VNF in the computer and unused resources. The control system (10) includes a VNF deploy control unit (14) referencing, in a case of receiving an instruction to additionally install a VNF, the type of the VNF to be additionally installed, the VNF compatibility condition, and the resource usage information to determine, from among the unused resources, resources allocated to the VNF to be additionally installed, and a resource allocation processing unit allocating the determined resources to the VNF to be additionally installed.

  • Patent number: 11941425
    Abstract: The disclosed technology teaches tuning containers in pods, in a high availability environment that runs two or more pods to implement a service, while the containers are running, including instrumenting a tunable container to communicate application metrics to a tuning engine that runs in a pod and maintains current configuration state information for the container. The tuning engine accesses the application metrics and a rule that specifies tuning of resource configuration for the container. The rule combines variables in the metrics to determine whether an update should be applied to the container. The tuning engine determines a new resource configuration for the tunable container and updates the configuration state information for the container according to the new configuration. An update manager detects updating of the configuration state information and performs a rolling update of instances of the tunable container in the pods that implement the service.

  • Patent number: 11907747
    Abstract: A method for deploying product applications within virtual machines onto on-premises and public cloud infrastructures. Specifically, the disclosed method proposes a migration scheme of virtual machine images (configured at least with product applications and guest operating systems) from an on-premises infrastructure to a public cloud infrastructure. Further, the migration scheme considers two workflows—a normal workflow contingent on the public cloud infrastructure having up-to-date support for the guest operating systems; and an exception workflow contingent on the public cloud infrastructure lacking up-to-date support for the guest operating systems.

  • Patent number: 11880702
    Abstract: Hot restart of a hypervisor by replacing a running first hypervisor by a second hypervisor with minimally perceptible downtime to guest partitions. A first hypervisor is executed on a computing system. The first hypervisor is configured to create one or more guest partitions. During the hot restart, a service partition is generated and initialized with a second hypervisor. At least a portion of runtime state of the first hypervisor is migrated and synchronized to the second hypervisor using inverse hypercalls. After the synchronization, the second hypervisor is devirtualized from the service partition to replace the first hypervisor. Devirtualizing includes transferring control of hardware resources from the first hypervisor to the second hypervisor, using the previously migrated and synchronized runtime state.

  • Patent number: 11861394
    Abstract: Methods and systems are disclosed for automated semantic tagging that include detecting a particular thread executed by a processor and identifying a root process of the particular thread. An object-process link may be by linking an object that executed code that called the particular thread to the root process. A thread list of thread definitions of the object may be identified. A particular thread definition that corresponds to the particular thread can be mapped. Resource types to be consumed upon executing an instance of the thread instantiated from the particular thread definition can be identified and the corresponding values of the resource types can be determined. A process specification can be generated that encapsulates the thread definition, resource types and values so as to reproduce a state of the root process at a point in which the particular thread executed.

  • Patent number: 11853787
    Abstract: Systems, apparatuses and methods may provide for technology that dynamically tunes platform features based on virtual machine runtime requirements. In one example, a first virtual machine and a second virtual machine of a cloud server platform may each be associated with one or more logical cores. The first virtual machine may have a first configuration to efficiently support a first feature setting arrangement on the associated logical cores. The second virtual machine may have a different second configuration to efficiently support a different second feature setting arrangement on the different associated logical cores. Feature settings that are specific to an application associated with a virtual machine may be determined based on application runtime requirements. Such determined feature settings may be stored as a bit mask in control fields of a virtual machine control and enforced on the logical cores associated with a given virtual machine.
