  • Patent number: 10257201
    Abstract: The present disclosure provides new methods and systems for managing access to service accounts by user accounts. For example, a user account and a service account may be created. The user account may be granted a first permission to access the service account. The first permission may provide a user with a capability to access the service account by at least one of accessing the service account through the user account and directly accessing the service account. A first credential may be issued to the service account. A user account status event regarding a change to the first permission may automatically be detected. It may be determined that the first permission provided access to the service account A second credential may be issued to the service account. The second credential may invalidate the first credential and may prevent the user from directly accessing the service account.

  • Patent number: 10230786
    Abstract: Implementations provide for a source to image framework for a Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) system in a distributed cluster system that can apply modifications to source code. A method of the disclosure includes invoking source-to-image (STI) methodology to execute an instance of an application image. The application image is associated with source code and an application framework of an application. A modification to the source code utilized in the instance is received and identified via the application framework utilized in the instance. The identified modification to the source code is applied during runtime of the instance in a container via the application framework.

  • Patent number: 9880826
    Abstract: A mechanism for automatic installing and scaling of application resources in a multi-tenant Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) environment in a cloud computing system is disclosed. A method includes creating, by a processing device of an Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) platform, an image package corresponding to a node host on a multi-tenant Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) system. The image package comprises an image file including a script file having a plurality of software updates and run time configuration files. The image package is stored in a storage memory of the IaaS platform and is accessible by a virtual machine (VM) instance. The method also includes retrieving, from the storage memory, the script file from the image package and causing a boot process of the VM instance to download the script file into the PaaS system.

  • Publication number: 20160147529
    Abstract: Aspects of the disclosure provide for source code management for a multi-tenant Platform-as-Service (PaaS) system. A method of the disclosure includes creating, by a processing device of a platform-as-a-service (PaaS) system, a first container to host a first source code management repository for an application; receiving, at the first container, source code associated with the application; creating, by the processing device, a second container to provide deployment functionality for the application, the second container comprising resource-constrained processing space of a node of the PaaS system to execute functionality of the application; and deploying, by the processing device, the source code on the PaaS system using the second container. Aspects of the disclosure may be implemented using high-availability (HA) clusters by replicating the SCM container(s). Aspects of the disclosure may provide users with cost-effective, scaled, and secure PaaS services using reduced infrastructure.

  • Publication number: 20150295824
    Abstract: Implementations of a routing tier for highly-available applications on a multi-tenant Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) system are disclosed. A method of the disclosure includes receiving, from a broker of a multi-tenant PaaS system, information related to a load balancer gear of an application running on the multi-tenant PaaS system. The information includes endpoint information indicating a location of the load balancer gear, and cartridge information identifying one or more cartridges implemented on the load balancer gear. The method further includes updating a routing table in view of the endpoint information and the cartridge information, and causing traffic to be routed to the load balancer gear in view of the updated routing table. The load balancer gear directs traffic to one or more other gears of the application.
