  • Patent number: 10375202
    Abstract: Techniques for database selection during site provisioning in distributed computing systems are disclosed herein. In one embodiment, a method can include receiving a user request for a site to be hosted on one or more nodes in the distributed computing system. In response to the received user request, one of the databases is selected by randomly selecting a set of databases from a list of available databases, determining a subset of databases each having a lower level of database load than the other databases from the set of databases, and randomly selecting one database from the subset of databases. The method further includes storing a configuration file for the site in the randomly selected one database to enable the site to be accessible, the configuration file containing data representing one or more of module loading control, security configuration, session state configuration, application language, or compilation setting of the site.

  • Patent number: 10261943
    Abstract: Data to be moved from a source system to a target system, for a set of tenants, is first identified. The data is enumerated by a first computing instance in the source system to obtain an enumeration list. Data is copied from the source system to the target system based on the enumeration list by a second computing instance. The data in the source and target systems is then enumerated by a third computing instance to determine whether any data is still to be moved and another enumeration list is generated. The data still to be moved is then moved based on the other enumeration list.

  • Publication number: 20180314548
    Abstract: Techniques for work item management in distributed computing systems are disclosed herein. In one embodiment, a method can include receiving a user request from a user to initiate a provisioning process for a site to be hosted in the distributed computing system. In response to the received user request from the user, a work item containing one or more tasks to be performed in the provisioning process can be generated. The generated work item can then be enqueued in a work item queue with a future time that is later than a current time at which the generated work item is enqueued. Subsequently, the enqueued work item can be dequeued from the work item queue at a time earlier than the future time of the enqueued task to trigger performance of the one or more tasks contained in the work item related to the provisioning process of the site.

  • Publication number: 20180309847
    Abstract: Techniques for asynchronous site provisioning in distributed computing systems are disclosed herein. In one embodiment, a method can include receiving a user request to initiate a provisioning process for a site. The user request can contain one or more specified features or functionalities for the site. The method also includes in response to the received user request from the user, performing provisioning of the site without provisioning for at least one of the specified features in the user request and providing the provisioned site for access by the user upon completion of performing provisioning of the site. The method further includes continuing provisioning the at least one of the specified features included in the user request while allowing the user to access the provided site without the at least one of the specified features via the computer network.

  • Patent number: 9722873
    Abstract: A computer system may provide zero-downtime, reversible, client-driven service migration to migrate a client from a current service to a new service. The computer system may configure the client to operate in a dual-write, old-read mode in which the client issues write requests to both the current service and the new service and issues read requests only to the current service. The computer system may configure the client to operate in a dual-write, new-read mode in which the client issues write requests to both the current service and the new service and issues read requests only to the new service.

  • Publication number: 20170099181
    Abstract: Users in a given organization are tagged with a data center identifier (or data location) that identifies a data center where the user's resources are located. A user request is detected, that indicates that the user wishes to access a resource that is tied to the user. The user is automatically navigated to the user's corresponding data center, where the user permissions are analyzed to selectively grant access to the requested resource.

  • Publication number: 20170039063
    Abstract: Various methods and systems for generating an idempotent workflow are described herein. In one example, a method includes detecting distributed code and identifying a boundary function in the distributed code. The method can also include separating the boundary function into a transition function, a non-idempotent function, and a reversion function. Additionally, the method can include transforming the non-idempotent function into an idempotent function by generating a flag corresponding to the non-idempotent function, wherein the flag indicates if the non-idempotent function has been executed. Furthermore, the method can include combining the transition function, the idempotent function, and the reversion function to form the idempotent workflow.

  • Patent number: 9313269
    Abstract: Architecture that maintains the user experience as close as possible to the user experience when dealing with the usual/regular forms and data provided in an office application when dealing with hybrid forms and hybrid data. Synchronization of the hybrid data to single-master and multi-masters systems is accomplished when the associated hybrid client goes offline, changes are made to the hybrid data, and then the client comes back online. For example, where the single-master system is a line-of-business (LOB) server system and the multi-master system is an officer server that employs collaboration capability, the architecture allows office users to access, manipulate, and share LOB entity information using collaborative means, while at the same time, ensuring data and business process consistency for the LOB entity in the LOB system.

  • Patent number: 8965751
    Abstract: Multi-lingual translation for third party content feed applications is provided in social network and similar environments in an independent manner from the content feed. A copy of a content feed may be distributed to consumers via content feed channels of a social network or similar service with language specific views. Translation is performed post-content feed based on tagged format of the content feed translating language dependent text into a selected (or detected) language for a user and leaving language independent text in its original form. Support for new languages may be added or existing languages removed independent of the content feed.
