  • Patent number: 11411814
    Abstract: A method of managing a configuration of a computer network system includes creating of an instance of a server by a user through an interface of a public cloud service. A management process detects the existence of the instance by regularly polling the cloud service for infrastructure data and analyzing the infrastructure data to determine that the newly created instance exists. The method also includes testing parameters of the server indicated in the infrastructure data, which parameters are fully determined by the request, against predefined one or more infrastructure policies, whereby the parameters are available and testable against the policies during the generating, but are tested after the request is enacted to create the instance without creating policy enforcement encumbrance on the user when the user creates the new instance of the server.

  • Patent number: 11400001
    Abstract: A mattress support includes a first section and a second section configured to be coupled to the first section. Each of the first section and the second section includes a base plate configured to be positioned on a box frame of a bed. A top plate is pivotable relative to the base plate. A bladder structure is positioned between the base plate and the top plate and inflatable to adjust a height of the top plate.

  • Patent number: 10756968
    Abstract: A management process monitors a cloud, such as a hybrid cloud, for utilization policy compliance rather than burdening requesting users. A hybrid cloud system requests an action directly of a cloud interface process that processes the request using a management process or externally, such as directly through a cloud service. Users complying with utilization policies are able directly to implement actions or resource allocations without the burden of policy enforcement processes intervening at a time an action is requested.

  • Publication number: 20080010073
    Abstract: The invention provides a system for facilitating communication between two or more sites, where the system comprises an information utility operable to enable communication between a first site and a second site, and a user registration system coupled to the information utility, the user registration system operable to enable the first and second sites to identify users without sharing user information.

  • Publication number: 20050072237
    Abstract: A pipeline inspection pig for locating crack-like defects (10) in pipeline walls (8) comprises at least one transmit transducer (T) for transmitting ultrasound energy into the pipeline wall (8), and at least one associated receive transducer (R) located adjacent the transmit transducer (T), the arrangement being such that, for a given defect (10) in the pipeline wall (8), ultrasound energy within the pipeline wall (8) is incident on the defect (10), part of said energy being reflected by the defect (10) back to the receive transducer (8) in the form of a first data stream, and the remainder of said energy passing through the defect (10) to be attenuated thereby and thence returned to the receive transducer (R) in the form of a second data stream, interpretation of the first and second data streams enabling the location of the defect (10) to be determined.
