  • Patent number: 11113186
    Abstract: This disclosure describes techniques for testing and publishing of resource handlers in a cloud environment. For example, a code-development interface may be utilized to generate initial code for the building of resource handlers. The initial code may be verified and the resource handlers may be built and deployed to a test platform. One or more execution tests may be run on the resource handlers in the test platform to determine if the resource handlers execute successfully. The resource type associated with the resource handlers may be published to a registry service and the resource type may be made available for provisioning.

  • Patent number: 11032213
    Abstract: This disclosure describes techniques for centralizing the management of computing resources that are provisioned across multiple service provider networks by infrastructure modeling services. A service provider network may host or provide a centralized management service that supports an open source framework that provides users, or developers, with a unified development interface to manage computing resources that are provisioned in different service provider networks. The unified development interface of the host service provider network may provide users with a meta schema or language format to create infrastructure schemas for modeling, provisioning, and operating computing resources across service provider networks that are managed by different service providers.

  • Publication number: 20210114106
    Abstract: Additive manufacturing includes successively forming a plurality of layers on a support. Depositing a layer from the plurality of layers includes dispensing first particles, selectively dispensing second particles in selected regions corresponding to a surface of the object, and fusing at least a portion of the layer. The layer has the first particles throughout and the second particles in the selected regions. Alternatively or in addition, forming the plurality of layers includes depositing multiple groups of layers. Depositing a group of layers includes, for each layer in the group of layers dispensing a feed material to provide the layer, and after dispensing the feed material and before dispensing a subsequent layer fusing a selected portion of the layer. After all layers in the group of layers are dispensed, a volume of the group of layers that extends through all the layers in the group of layers is fused.

  • Publication number: 20190294477
    Abstract: A resource management system of a computing resource service provider performs adoptions of virtual resource instances, such as virtual machine instances and virtual data store instances that were not instantiated as members of a logical container, into logical containers that are used to manage members of the logical containers as a group. Adopting such “candidate” resources that were not generated from programmable infrastructure templates allows the resources to be managed in accordance with an infrastructure-as-code framework, alongside resources that are generated from such templates. A template for launching infrastructure instances may be modified to include an adopted resource definition describing the configuration of the adopted resource, so that management operations can be performed on the adopted resource together with the other members of the container.

  • Patent number: 10384265
    Abstract: A method of additive manufacturing include delivering at least one layer by either depositing a uniform layer of powder on a support and then removing a portion of the layer with a roller with a surface having spatially controlled electrostatic charge, or by depositing powder onto the surface of the roller and moving the roller relative to a support such that the spatially controllable electrostatic charge on the surface of the roller causes transfer of a corresponding portion of the powder from the roller onto the support or an underlying layer.
