  • Patent number: 11888858
    Abstract: Various aspects of methods, systems, and use cases for verification and attestation of operations in an edge computing environment are described, based on use of a trust calculus and established definitions of trustworthiness properties. In an example, an edge computing verification node is configured to: obtain a trust representation, corresponding to an edge computing feature, that is defined with a trust calculus and provided in a data definition language; receive, from an edge computing node, compute results and attestation evidence from the edge computing feature; attempt validation of the attestation evidence based on attestation properties defined by the trust representation; and communicate an indication of trustworthiness for the compute results, based on the validation of the attestation evidence. In further examples, the trust representation and validation is used in a named function network (NFN), for dynamic composition and execution of a function.

    Abstract: Technologies for dynamic accelerator selection include a compute sled. The compute sled includes a network interface controller to communicate with a remote accelerator of an accelerator sled over a network, where the network interface controller includes a local accelerator and a compute engine. The compute engine is to obtain network telemetry data indicative of a level of bandwidth saturation of the network. The compute engine is also to determine whether to accelerate a function managed by the compute sled. The compute engine is further to determine, in response to a determination to accelerate the function, whether to offload the function to the remote accelerator of the accelerator sled based on the telemetry data. Also the compute engine is to assign, in response a determination not to offload the function to the remote accelerator, the function to the local accelerator of the network interface controller.

  • Patent number: 11880287
    Abstract: Embodiments described herein are generally directed to intelligent management of microservices failover. In an example, responsive to an uncorrectable hardware error associated with a processing resource of a platform on which a task of a service is being performed by a primary microservice, a failover trigger is received by a failover service. A secondary microservice is identified by the failover service that is operating in lockstep mode with the primary microservice. The secondary microservice is caused by the failover service to takeover performance of the task in non-lockstep mode based on failover metadata persisted by the primary microservice. The primary microservice is caused by the failover service to be taken offline.
