  • Patent number: 11985032
    Abstract: A templating engine in a network management platform creates and stores named templates that describe a network state associating one or more IP address blocks and sub-blocks with one or more corresponding attributes of potential and actual network resources. Named templates comprise, for each IP address sub-block, a data object including a set of actions to be taken in response to provisioning requests based on metadata associated with a network resource identified by the request. Responsive to a provisioning request for access by a resource to the enterprise network, an executed template automatically assigns an IP address to that resource in one of the sub-blocks according to identified attributes of the resource. The executing template automatically notifies external systems of the IP address assignment of the enterprise network.

  • Patent number: 11979300
    Abstract: A file is created in a standardized format that defines a type of a containerized application and includes information for deployment of the containerized application. A single parser of the standardized format is thus enabled to deploy different types of containerized applications. The standardized file format includes an application definition. The application definition includes a service, a port list, a container list, a volume mount list, an access mode list, a resource usage list, or any suitable combination thereof. A client device presents a user interface that allows a user to select a containerized application to execute. An application server parses an application template file for the selected containerized application and, based on the information in the application template file, causes one or more servers (e.g., one or more Kubernetes cluster nodes) to execute the containerized application.

  • Patent number: 11954216
    Abstract: Systems and methods are described herein for detecting the inadvertent modification to or deletion of data in a data store and taking automated action to prevent the deletion of data from becoming permanent. The described techniques may also be utilized to detect anomalous changes to a policy or affecting storage of data and taking automated action to mitigate the effects of those changes. In one example, events generated as a result of requests to perform operations on data objects in a data storage service may be obtained, where at least some of the events indicate a failure to fulfill respective requests. Data from the events may be input into a model to detect an anomaly indicative of inadvertent modification of data. As a result of detection of the anomaly, a set of operations may be initiated or performed to prevent the inadvertent modification of data from becoming permanent.

  • Patent number: 11765251
    Abstract: A system for effectively addressing the fast-producer and slow-consumer problem for persistent hybrid cloud caches. In particular, the system and associated methods ensure the integrity of data stored by persistent caches by utilizing a plurality of journals, including a user journal and a cloud journal. The user journal records operations conducted by users of the system in records. Before the records are transferred to a cloud storage system, the records are transferred to the cloud journal, which may he configured to he larger than the user journal. Once a record is transferred from the user journal to the cloud journal, the record may be released from the user journal, thereby increasing capacity of the user journal for subsequent operations to be recorded. Each record may then be transferred to the cloud storage system from the cloud journal, which may then cause each record to be released from the cloud journal.
