  • Patent number: 10162656
    Abstract: Techniques for optimizing guest operating system (OS) utilization cost in a processor based licensing model in a virtual datacenter are described. In one example embodiment, a virtual machine (VM) that has or is scheduled to have an instance of an operating system (OS) that requires a license is identified. Availability of a physical processor of a first host computing system that is licensed to execute the OS based on the computing resource requirements of the VM, the physical processor based license, author assigned affinity to physical processors in the first host computing system is determined. The VM is then migrated/placed to/on the physical processor of the first host computing system or migrated/placed to/on a physical processor of a second host computing system based on the outcome of the determination.

  • Patent number: 10162670
    Abstract: Composite virtual machine templates may be used in the deployment of virtual machines into virtualized computing environments. A composite virtual machine template may define a plurality of deployment attributes for use in a virtual machine deployment, and at least some of these deployment attributes may be determined through references to other virtual machine templates and included in the composite virtual machine template.

  • Patent number: 10157067
    Abstract: The present invention relates to the technical field of network communications, and discloses a system optimizing method and apparatus. The system optimizing method comprises: judging whether programs running in the system meet a preset optimization rule; displaying programs that meet the preset optimization rule in a first class of a program list and displaying programs that do not meet the preset optimization rule in a second class of the program list, wherein states of the programs in the first class are selected by default and states of the programs in the second class are not selected by default; and performing optimization processing for programs in the program list whose states are selected according to a triggered optimization instruction, wherein the optimization instruction includes the states of the programs in the program list.

  • Patent number: 10146592
    Abstract: The technology disclosed relates to managing resource allocation to task sequences in a stream processing framework. In particular, it relates to operating a computing grid that includes machine resources, with heterogeneous containers defined over whole machines and some containers including multiple machines. It also includes initially allocating multiple machines to a first container, initially allocating first set of stateful task sequences to the first container, running the first set of stateful task sequences as multiplexed units of work under control of a container-scheduler, where each unit of work for a first task sequence runs to completion on first machine resources in the first container, unless it overruns a time-out, before a next unit of work for a second task sequence runs multiplexed on the first machine resources. It further includes automatically modifying a number of machine resources and/or a number assigned task sequences to a container.

  • Patent number: 10095534
    Abstract: In response to detecting a change to a host hardware configuration, a hypervisor sends a notification of the change to a guest operating of a first virtual machine, the first virtual machine networked with one or more additional virtual machines. The hypervisor filters a networking packet from the guest operating system in view of the change to the host hardware configuration. In response to receiving from the guest operating system an indication that the change to the host hardware configuration has been recorded by the guest operating system, the hypervisor, disables filtering of one or more additional networking packets from the guest operating system.

  • Patent number: 10013275
    Abstract: Methods and systems for executing code referenced from a microservice registry are disclosed. For example, a microservice registry is stored in a memory. The microservice registry includes references to a plurality of microservices including a first microservice. An isolated guest executing on one or more processors receives a request to execute an executable code and determines that the executable code is unavailable in the first isolated guest. The isolated guest determines that, based on the microservice registry, the first microservice executes the executable code. The isolated guest forwards the first request to the first microservice and receives a result of the request from the first micro service.

  • Patent number: 10007554
    Abstract: Provided herein are systems, methods, and software for implementing information management applications. In an implementation, at least a portion of an information management application is embodied in program instructions that include various task modules and a scheduler module. In some implementations the program instructions are written in accordance with a single threaded programming language, such as JavaScript or any other suitable single threaded language. When executed, each task module returns control to the scheduler module upon completing. The scheduler module identifies to which of the plurality of task modules to grant control based at least in part on a relevance of each task module to a user interaction.

  • Patent number: 10002030
    Abstract: Methods for migrating a virtual machine instance between devices include scoring a received migration request against one or more rules in a rule database relating to one or more respective validation sets. Each validation set includes one or more validation subtasks. Each score is compared to a respective threshold to determine if a level of risk according to the respective rule merits performing validation. The migration request is validated by one or more validation sets that correspond to the scores that exceed the respective threshold.
