  • Publication number: 20190394261
    Abstract: Embodiments relate to a software-defined networking (SDN) single-source enterprise workload manager. An aspect includes analyzing, by an enterprise server executing a workload compiler, a plurality of source code files of a workload during a workload compilation and build process to determine enterprise network connections between a plurality of subprograms of the workload as a plurality of compile-time information of the workload. The workload compiler generates a network flow graph as interactions between the subprograms of the workload in the enterprise network responsive to the compile-time information of the workload. The network flow graph is provided to an SDN controller to make network resource allocations for the workload based on the network flow graph. A workload manager of the enterprise server adjusts an allocation of compute resources based on a notification of a reallocation of network resources made by the SDN controller.

  • Patent number: 10372502
    Abstract: Apparatus, systems and methods aggregating electronic devices for sharing functionality to fulfill requested tasks, while also monitoring and controlling battery energy levels in these electronic devices to ensure sufficient battery power is available on the devices, individually or collectively, to fulfill a requested task. The electronic devices are positioned in proximity to a computing device for determining functionalites that may be shared amongst the various electronic devices to fulfill the requested task. These electronic devices are also provided in proximity to a charge distribution unit (CDU) for determining if each electronic device has enough battery power to complete all, or a portion, of the requested task. If any device needs charging, the CDU allocates and distributes battery power from one or more other device batteries and/or power outlet. The charging power is then transferred to the electronic device in need of charging to fulfill the requested task.

  • Patent number: 10182016
    Abstract: Congestion management for data traffic in a virtual domain identifies a congestion source and sends a message to the source to adjust data traffic rates. The source may be a virtual machine hosted by a physical server with one or more virtual servers incorporated. A congestion manager may identify the source and send the message to the source without affecting other data sources hosted by the physical server or the virtual servers. In some embodiments, information about the congestion source may be encapsulated in a packet payload readable only by the congestion source so only the congestion source receives the instruction to adjust the transmission rate.

  • Patent number: 10170908
    Abstract: Apparatus, systems and methods for managing and distributing electronic device battery power charge to electronic devices having batteries in need of charging. The electronic devices are positioned in proximity to a charge distribution unit (CDU) and a controller, which receive battery signal data including battery power level data transmitted from the electronic devices. Using the battery power level data the controller analyzes the battery signal data to determine an allocated amount of battery power charge required for charging each device battery to a desired battery charge. The CDU receives these allocated amounts and initiates transfer thereof from a power source in communication with the invention. Allocated amount(s) of battery power charge are transferred from the power source by sharing power source charging power amongst the electronic device batteries to ensure each electronic device has available battery power at a time when needed.
