  • Patent number: 11450421
    Abstract: Systems and methods are disclosed that provide smart alerts to users, e.g., alerts to users about diabetic states that are only provided when it makes sense to do so, e.g., when the system can predict or estimate that the user is not already cognitively aware of their current condition, e.g., particularly where the current condition is a diabetic state warranting attention. In this way, the alert or alarm is personalized and made particularly effective for that user. Such systems and methods still alert the user when action is necessary, e.g., a bolus or temporary basal rate change, or provide a response to a missed bolus or a need for correction, but do not alert when action is unnecessary, e.g., if the user is already estimated or predicted to be cognitively aware of the diabetic state warranting attention, or if corrective action was already taken.

  • Patent number: 11397622
    Abstract: Techniques are described for enabling users of a service provider to manage placement preferences used to launch virtualized computing resources into a fleet of dedicated physical servers. Users can use one or more service provider interfaces to provide input indicating various placement preferences associated with a fleet of physical servers dedicated for use by a user of the service provider. These placement preferences can be used to determine at which physical server virtualized computing resources—for example, virtual machine (VM) instances, containers, and the like—are launched in response to launch requests. Among other benefits, the ability to configure customized placement preferences enables users to better satisfy various performance, reliability, software licensing, and other considerations users may have with respect to how their resources are placed within physical server fleets.

  • Publication number: 20220191706
    Abstract: Disclosed are various embodiments for automated deployment of radio-based networks. In one embodiment, a request to provision a radio-based network for a customer by a provider according to a network plan is received via an application programming interface (API) of a cloud provider network. An arrangement of a plurality of cells for the customer is determined. Respective antennas and radio units for individual ones of the plurality of cells are preconfigured to implement the radio-based network before shipping the respective antennas and the radio units to the customer.

  • Publication number: 20220191303
    Abstract: Disclosed are various embodiments relating to an intersection of on-demand network slicing and content delivery. In one embodiment, in response to an application programming interface (API) request, a network slice is provisioned with a quality-of-service requirement in a radio-based network having a radio access network and an associated core network. Also in response to the API request, a transfer of content to a content delivery service at an edge location in the radio-based network is initiated in order to meet the quality-of-service requirement for the network slice.

  • Publication number: 20220191131
    Abstract: Disclosed are various embodiments that provide highly available data-processing network functions for radio-based networks. In one embodiment, a tunnel host consistently routes network traffic associated with a range of network addresses in a radio-based network to a first instance of a data-processing network function instead of a second instance of the data-processing network function. A problem with the first instance of the data-processing network function is then detected. Additional network traffic associated with the range of network addresses is redirected from the first instance of the data-processing network function to the second instance of the data-processing network function.

  • Publication number: 20220124066
    Abstract: Virtual networks may be launched in a provider network with an initial IP address space (e.g., an IPv4 CIDR block). Methods are described that allow additional IP address spaces to be added to a virtual network. A new IP address space for a virtual network may be specified via an API. The specified space may be checked to insure that it does not overlap with IP spaces that are associated with the virtual network. If there are no overlaps, the space is added to the network, for example by adding the space to the network's route tables.

  • Patent number: 11310733
    Abstract: Disclosed are various embodiments for on-demand application-driven network slicing. In one embodiment, it is determined that an application executed in a particular computing device has a quality-of-service requirement. The particular computing device is connected to a communications network. A request is sent that causes a network slice allocation service to reserve a network slice having the quality-of-service requirement in the communications network. Data to or from the application is transmitted using the network slice.

  • Patent number: 10735499
    Abstract: A control-plane component of a virtual network interface (VNI) multiplexing service assigns one or more VNIs as members of a first interface group. A first VNI of the interface group is attached to a first compute instance. Network traffic directed to a particular endpoint address associated with the first interface group is to be distributed among members of the first interface group by client-side components of the service. The control-plane component propagates membership metadata of the first interface group to the client-side components. In response to a detection of an unhealthy state of the first compute instance, the first VNI is attached to a different compute instance by the control-plane component.

  • Publication number: 20190356587
    Abstract: Methods and apparatus that allow clients to connect resource instances to virtual networks in provider network environments via private IP. Via private IP linking methods and apparatus, a client of a provider network can establish private IP communications between the client's resource instances on the provider network and the client's resource instances provisioned in the client's virtual network via links from the private IP address space of the virtual network to the private IP address space of the provider network. The provider network client resource instances remain part of the client's provider network implementation and may thus also communicate with other resource instances on the provider network and/or with entities on external networks via public IP while communicating with the virtual network resource instances via private IP.
