  • Patent number: 10169000
    Abstract: A mechanism for provisioning composite application using secure parameter access is disclosed. A method of one embodiment of the disclosure includes receiving a request for a configuration parameter from a first component of a composite Web application residing on a first virtual machine (VM). The requested configuration parameter can be related to a second component of the composite Web application residing on a second VM. The role of the first component of the composite Web application is identified and a determination is made as to whether the first component has access to the requested configuration parameter based on the role of the first component. If the first component has access, then the requested configuration parameter is provided to the first component.

  • Patent number: 10148621
    Abstract: A processing device receives an unauthenticated provisioning request from a hardware resource. Responsive to determining that the hardware resource satisfies one or more provisioning criteria, the processing device forwards the provisioning request to a server residing behind a firewall, receives provisioning data from the server, removes sensitive information from the provisioning data to create modified provisioning data, and forwards the modified provisioning data to the hardware resource.

  • Patent number: 10127084
    Abstract: A processing device performs a statistical analysis of a plurality of previously provisioned composite applications, a composite application of the plurality of previously provisioned composite applications comprising a plurality of nodes, the plurality of nodes each having a final provisioned state for an application component of the composite application. The processing device predicts an intermediate provisioned state to be used for a node of a future composite application based on the statistical analysis. Prior to receiving a request to provision a new composite application comprising a node having a final provisioned state that is compatible with the determined intermediate provisioned state, the processing device provisions software on a resource to cause the resource to have the intermediate provisioned state.

  • Patent number: 9329947
    Abstract: A computing device executing a virtualization manager detects that a virtual machine running on a host has been paused. While the virtual machine is paused, no processor cycles are assigned to the virtual machine. The computing device determines whether a condition that caused the virtual machine to be paused has been resolved. If the condition has been resolved, the computing device causes the virtual machine to be resumed. Resuming the virtual machine includes assigning processor cycles to the virtual machine and performing a last input/output operation that was attempted prior to the virtual machine being paused.

  • Patent number: 9292557
    Abstract: A host controller maintains a hierarchy of labels representing distinct virtual machine parameters, allows a user to specify labels for virtual machines hosted by one or more servers coupled to the host controller, and stores the specified labels in association with respective virtual machines in a database that reflects relationships between the labels according to the hierarchy. The host controller then facilitates management of the virtual machines using the labels.

  • Patent number: 9104757
    Abstract: A method and system for providing up-to-date monitoring results in a virtual machine environment are described. In one embodiment, a control server executes a query pertaining to one or more objects in a virtual machine system, and provides a result of the query to a client for presentation to a user in a graphical user interface (GUI). The control server then periodically re-executes the query to obtain up-to-date information for the objects in the virtual machine system. Upon each re-execution of the query, the control server compares a new result of the query with a previous result of the query to determine whether the up-to-date information for the objects in the virtual machine system has changed. If so, the control server provides the new result of the query to the client. If not, the control server refrains from providing the new result of the query to the client.

  • Patent number: 8996506
    Abstract: A method and system for providing up-to-date monitoring results in a virtual machine environment are described. In one embodiment, a host controller receives a new query pertaining to at least one object in a virtual machine system from a client, and determines whether the new query is similar to any queries previously received from other clients. If the new query is similar to any of the previously received queries, the host controller provides data pertaining to a result of a last execution of the similar query to the client. If the new query is not similar to any of the previously received queries, the host controller executes the new query and provides a result of an execution of the new query to the client.
