  • Patent number: 10372504
    Abstract: This patent document describes systems and methods for tracking the usage of a service provided by a distributed computing platform and for the enforcement of a global quota against such usage. In one embodiment, Servers in the platform are organized in a hierarchical manner. At the lowest tier resides a set of globally distributed servers, any one of which may receive and respond to client device requests. Multiple tiers of aggregation servers sit above the above the delivery tier. The first tier of aggregation servers receive usage measurements from the delivery tier. The second and higher tiers aggregate the usage measurements from lower tiers until a world level tier combines all usage measurements for a given service. Preferably, usage information is passed between servers in synchronization events. The systems and methods described herein are scalable, low latency, fault-tolerant, and incur relatively low computing overhead.

  • Patent number: 10334026
    Abstract: In response to receiving a request from a user to initiate a new resource pool, a determination of a purpose of the new resource pool is made. The system may receive the purpose of the resource pool from the user and thereafter access user data regarding types of resource pools owned by the user and other users and the allocation of resources therein. The system identifies suggested resource pools and/or resource pool allocations to present to the user at the time the user initiates the new resource pool. The systems may receive a selected resource pool from the user, and begin initiate the new resource pool. Determining the purpose of the new resource pool, and allocations therefor at the time the resource pool is initiated, improves processing since the processors open the desired resource pool and allocate resources at the time of initiating the new resource pool.

  • Patent number: 10250687
    Abstract: In a vehicle remote operation system, when acquiring remote operation request information from a user of a vehicle 100, a server 210 in a command administration center 200 transmits access request information, requesting an access to the center 200 as a predetermined connection destination, to a command acquisition ECU 110a mounted on the vehicle 100. When acquiring the access request information transmitted from the center 200, the ECU 110a accesses to the center 200 as the predetermined connection destination connected to a network 400. Thus, the command information server 212 in the center 200 provides command information, corresponding to a remote operation command corresponding to a remote operation requested by the user of the vehicle 100, to the ECU 110a via the network 400. The ECU 110a then supplies the command information to the corresponding vehicle ECU 110 for allowing the vehicle 100 to operate as requested by the user.

  • Patent number: 10218589
    Abstract: Described techniques enable the tracking and reporting of resource utilization at multiple levels of granularity, the highest of which involves tracking resource usage by a particular object in aggregate. When aggregate usage for the particular object is within certain parameters, actual resource usage is not reported at the lower level of granularity, but is replaced by placeholder values. When aggregate usage for the particular object exceeds a threshold, the particular object is considered to be a “hot spot.” Resource usage for the particular object can then be reported (and tracked, if not already) at the lower level of granularity until the particular object is no longer a “hot spot.” The efficiency of the tracking may be further enhanced by leveraging a bifurcated counting mechanism in which a full count is updated only at selected sample times, with intermediate counters used to store changes in between sample times.

  • Patent number: 10187347
    Abstract: A novel architecture for a data sharing system (DSS) is disclosed and seeks to ensure the privacy and security of users' personal information. In this type of network, a user's personally identifiable information is stored and transmitted in an encrypted form, with few exceptions. The only key with which that encrypted data can be decrypted, and thus viewed, remains in the sole possession of the user and the user's friends/contacts within the system. This arrangement ensures that a user's personally identifiable information cannot be examined by anyone other than the user or his friends/contacts. This arrangement also makes it more difficult for the web site or service hosting the DSS to exploit its users' personally identifiable information. Such a system facilitates the encryption, storage, exchange and decryption of personal, confidential and/or proprietary data.
