  • Patent number: 11513859
    Abstract: Embodiments of the present disclosure may provide dynamic and fair assignment techniques for allocating resources on a demand basis. Assignment control may be separated into at least two components: a local component and a global component. Each component may have an active dialog with each other; the dialog may include two aspects: 1) a demand for computing resources, and 2) a total allowed number of computing resources. The global component may allocate resources from a pool of resources to different local components, and the local components in turn may assign their allocated resources to local competing requests. The allocation may also be throttled or limited at various levels.

  • Patent number: 11507408
    Abstract: Disclosed are various embodiments for a system that hardware locks a virtual machine to a host machine. The host machine can include a processor and a memory. A hypervisor can be stored in the memory that, when executed by the processor, causes the computing device to host one or more virtual machines. In addition, machine readable instructions stored in the memory that, when executed by the processor, cause the computing device to at least: receive a request to perform an operation on a virtual machine hosted by the hypervisor; evaluate the request to determine that the request complies with a policy; and in response to a determination that the request complies with the policy, cause the hypervisor to initiate the operation.

  • Patent number: 11494229
    Abstract: A method for detecting a traffic ramp-up rule violation includes receiving data element retrieval requests from an information retrieval system and determining a requests per second (RPS) for a key range. The method also includes determining a moving average of RPS for the key range. The method also includes determining a number of delta violations, each delta violation comprising a respective beginning instance in time when the RPS exceeded a delta RPS limit. For each delta violation, the method includes determining a maximum conforming load for the key range over and determining whether the RPS exceeded the maximum conforming load for the key range based on the beginning instance in time of the respective delta violation. When the RPS has exceeded the maximum conforming load, the method includes determining that the delta violation corresponds to a full-history violation indicative of a degradation of performance of the information retrieval system.

  • Patent number: 11416277
    Abstract: Methods, systems and computer readable medium for fast cluster upgrades. The disclosed techniques can be applied during an upgrade of a multi-node cluster when upgrading cluster software and/or hardware. Techniques applied include pausing a virtual machine (VM) at a first node, then communicating then-current states of the paused VM to a second node that executes a migrated clone of the paused VM. While the migrated cloned VM is running at the second node, changes to states of the cloned VM are tracked. When the upgrade of the first node has completed, then when migrating the cloned VM back to the first node, only the tracked state changes of the cloned VM are sent from the second node to the first node. The tracked state changes are used to update the states of the paused VM at the first node. The updated VM is resumed at the first node.

  • Patent number: 11403134
    Abstract: Example implementations relate to migration of a stateful application from a source computing environment to a destination virtualized computing environment by prioritizing migration of data of the application based on a priority map created based on data usage patterns. An instance of the application is installed within the destination environment. The priority map includes priorities for chunks of the data based on historical data access patterns. The data is migrated from a source volume of the source environment to a destination volume of the destination environment on a chunk-by-chunk basis by performing a background data migration process based on the priority map. Usage of the application concurrent with the data migration process is facilitated by abstracting a location of data being operated upon by the application by maintaining migration status for the chunks. The priority map is periodically updated based on observed data access patterns post application migration.

  • Patent number: 11403137
    Abstract: Tenant support is provided in a multi-tenant configuration in a data center by a Physical Function driver communicating a virtual User Priority to a virtual traffic class mapper to a Virtual Function driver. The Physical Function driver configures the Network Interface Controller to map virtual User Priorities to Physical User Priorities and to enforce the Virtual Function's limited access to Traffic Classes. Data Center Bridging features assigned to the physical network interface controller are hidden by virtualizing user priorities and traffic classes. A virtual Data Center Bridging configuration is enabled for a Virtual Function, to provide access to the user priorities and traffic classes that are not visible to the Virtual Function that the Virtual Function may need.

  • Patent number: 11403149
    Abstract: There is provided a method of operating a virtual network function manager for management of a virtual network function. A first request to manage a virtual network function is received (404). The request comprises an indication of whether to select an alternative virtual resource for allocation if a requested virtual resource is unavailable for allocation. A second request for a virtual resource associated with the first request to manage the virtual network function is transmitted (406). The requested virtual resource has one or more predefined characteristics. If a response is received that indicates the virtual resource having the one or more predefined characteristics is unavailable for allocation (408), an alternative virtual resource is selected for allocation (412). The alternative virtual resource has one or more alternative characteristics comprising at least one alternative characteristic that is different to a corresponding one of the predefined characteristics.

  • Patent number: 11392400
    Abstract: Described herein are systems, methods, and software to migrate virtual nodes of a data processing cluster. In one implementation, a management system monitors an executing data processing cluster on one or more first hosts to determine when the data processing cluster satisfies migration criteria. Once satisfied, the management system selects one or more second hosts to support the data processing cluster based on accommodation data associated with the hosts. After selection, the management system may initiate operations to migrate the data processing cluster from the one or more first hosts to the one or more second hosts.

  • Patent number: 11392422
    Abstract: The present application relates to executing a containerized application in a nested manner on two separate container orchestration services. For example, a user may submit a request to a container orchestration service to execute a containerized application, and in response, instead of identifying one of the existing compute instances belonging to the user and executing the containerized application on the identified compute instance, the container orchestration service may generate and submit a request to a serverless container management service that can not only acquire compute resources on behalf of the container orchestration service but also manage the compute resources such that the container orchestration service (or the original requesting user) does not need to manage scaling, monitoring, patching, and security of the compute resources.
