  • Patent number: 11005963
    Abstract: Connectivity between data centers in a hybrid cloud system is optimized by pre-loading a wide area network (WAN) optimization appliance in a first data center with data to initialize at least one WAN optimization of application. The first data center is managed by a first organization and a second data center managed by a second organization, the first organization being a tenant in the second data center. The described technique includes receiving application packets having the application data generated by an application executing in the first data center at the WAN optimization appliance from a first gateway in the first data center, and performing the at least one WAN optimization on the application packets using the pre-loaded data to initialize the at least one WAN optimization.

  • Patent number: 10735452
    Abstract: A method of transferring a virtual machine between a virtualized computing system and a cloud computing system includes determining that a virtual machine is to be transferred from a virtualized computing system to a cloud computing system and determining a connection between a first resource in the virtualized computing system and a second resource in the cloud computing system. Files that enable implementation of the virtual machine at the virtualized computing system and identified, as are file portions of the files for transfer from the virtualized computing system to the cloud computing system. At least one compliance check is executed on each of the file portions using at least one compliance checker. Each of the file portions that fails a compliance check is blocked from being maintained in the cloud computing system.

  • Patent number: 10375153
    Abstract: A cloud computing system retrieves routing entries associated with a particular tenant of the cloud computing system and a subset of a routing table of the entire cloud computing system. The routing entries are loaded into a networking switch, which is configured to route network packets using the loaded subset of routing entries, using a general-purpose processor rather than a costly dedicated ASIC.

  • Patent number: 10375170
    Abstract: Techniques for upgrading virtual appliances in a hybrid cloud computing system are provided. In one embodiment, virtual appliances are upgraded by deploying the upgraded appliances in both a data center and a cloud, configuring the upgraded appliances to have the same IP addresses as original appliances, and disconnecting the original appliances from networks to which they are connected and connecting the upgraded appliances to those networks via the same ports previously used by the original appliances. In another embodiment, upgraded appliances are deployed in the data center and the cloud, but configured with new IP addresses that are different from those of the original appliances, and connections are switched from those of the original appliances to new connections with the new IP addresses. Embodiments disclosed herein permit virtual appliances to be upgraded or replaced with relatively little downtime so as to help minimize disruptions to existing traffic flows.

  • Patent number: 9553887
    Abstract: One or more examples provide a method of transferring a virtual machine between a virtualized computing system and a cloud computing system that includes: establishing connection between a first resource in the virtualized computing system and a second resource in the cloud computing system to transfer files that implement the virtual machine from the first resource to the second resource; accessing, for transmission over the connection, data blocks on a storage device in the virtualized computing system that include the files; executing at least one compliance check on each of the data blocks using at least one compliance checker; and preventing each of the data blocks that fails a compliance check from being maintained in the cloud computing system.
