  • Patent number: 11132243
    Abstract: A query referencing a function associated with a remote software component is received by a network-based data warehouse system. Temporary security credentials corresponding to a role at a cloud computing service platform are obtained. The role has permission to send calls to a web endpoint corresponding to the remote software component. A request comprising input data and electronically signed using the temporary security credentials is sent to a web Application Programming Interface (API) management system of the cloud computing service platform. The request, when received by the web API management system, causes the web API management system to invoke external functionality provided by the remote software component at the web endpoint with respect to the input data. A response comprising a result of invoking the external functionality is received from the web API management system, and the result data is processed according to the query.

  • Patent number: 11099915
    Abstract: An event-driven compute service generates a checkpoint package based on an initialized state of a function. The checkpoint package may be generated through proactive or reactive checkpointing. The checkpoint package includes function code and checkpoint data for an initialized state of the registered function. The event-driven compute service registers the checkpoint package. In response to a determination that an event matches a defined event to trigger the registered checkpoint package, the registered checkpoint package launches in a container. A checkpoint framework causes the container to launch the registered function from the initialized state according to the checkpoint data of the registered checkpoint package. The container terminates the registered function upon completion of one or more tasks.

  • Patent number: 11093302
    Abstract: Techniques are described for enabling customers of a service provider network to modify and extend the functionality of application programming interfaces (APIs) provided to customers by various services of the provider network. Services of a service provider network provide interfaces that enable customers and other users to define custom API actions representing functionality to be performed by the services upon receipt of corresponding API requests. In this manner, the functionality exposed by provider network services to customers via APIs becomes extensible and customizable to fit customers' particular use cases and without the provider network needing to contemplate and explicitly implement all possible customer-specific API action variations.

  • Patent number: 11093843
    Abstract: Embodiments of the present invention are directed to techniques for optimizing an execution mode used to process a request. A self-training storage system can determine one or more proposed execution modes based on a real-time evaluation of various factors, including a history of execution modes used to process historical requests. This history can serve as training data for a machine learning model that can predict an execution mode based on one or more request parameters. This predicted execution mode can be taken as one of a number of proposed execution modes that can be combined using a weightage system to automatically classify an ultimate execution mode used to process the request. Associated weights for combining proposed execution modes can be determined by training a machine learning model using a training set constructed based on a survey of user satisfaction with a determined execution mode.
