  • Publication number: 20170371835
    Abstract: A method of managing remote direct memory access (RDMA) to a virtual computing instance includes suspending locally initiated RDMA operations of the virtual computing instance executing on a first host prior to a migration of the virtual computing instance to a second host. The first host includes a first hypervisor and the second host includes a second hypervisor. The method further includes requesting a peer to suspend remotely initiated RDMA operations that target the virtual computing instance through a first channel, establishing after the migration, a second channel between the peer and the second hypervisor that supports execution of the virtual computing instance on the second host, configuring a virtual object of the second hypervisor on the second host to use the second channel for the locally initiated RDMA operations, and requesting the peer to resume the remotely initiated RDMA operations using the second channel.

  • Patent number: 9476082
    Abstract: Yeast strains capable of increased prenyl phosphate production are provided, enabling increased terpenoid molecule production. Heterologous yeast strains with high prenyl phosphate availability are prepared using one or both of two different strategies for increasing the availability of prenyl phosphates for terpenoid production. First, by co-expressing multiple mevalonate pathway gene analogs, a novel heterologous combination of genes results, some of which increases the inherent availability of prenyl phosphates in yeast. Second, by expressing the non-endogenous enzyme ATP citrate lysase (ACL), a buildup of high cytosolic concentration of acetyl-CoA is produced in the cytosol of S. cerevisiae.
