  • Patent number: 10498648
    Abstract: A method for processing packet data in a service provider environment includes, by a network-enabled data processing device within a server computer of the service provider environment, receive packet data including header information and payload information. The packet header information can be separated from the payload information. The separated header information can be forwarded to a processor of the server computer for processing, without forwarding at least a portion of the payload information. Transforming instructions and at least one address of one or more storage locations can be received from the processor, based at least in part on the header information. The payload information can be transformed based on the transforming instructions. The transformed payload information can be stored in the one or more storage locations based on the at least one address.

  • Patent number: 10404613
    Abstract: Computing resource services have computing resources allocated among regions and data zones, where regions can be completely separate deployments of an infrastructure to provide the highest degree of independence. The more regions that are utilized by a customer, the higher the level of fault tolerance may exist. Current networks consist of heavily distributed infrastructures or mainly centralized infrastructures, both of which can cause complete control plane failures when even a subset of a data zone or region loses network connectivity. The placement of control plane and data plane resources provides for optimal availability and durability during infrastructure failures.

  • Patent number: 10382195
    Abstract: Generally described, physical computing devices in a virtual network can be configured to host a number of virtual machine instances. The physical computing devices can be operably coupled with offload devices. In accordance with an aspect of the present disclosure, a security component can be incorporated into an offload device. The security component can be a physical device including a microprocessor and storage. The security component can include a set of instructions configured to validate an operational configuration of the offload device or the physical computing device to establish that they are configured in accordance with a secure or trusted configuration. In one example, a first security component on the offload device can validate the operational computing environment on the offload device and a second security component on the physical computing device can validate the operational computing environment on the physical computing device.

  • Patent number: 10259483
    Abstract: A stroller including a pair of wheels and a cross bar extending therebetween. A pedal is coupled to the cross bar, and is transitional relative thereto between locked and unlocked configurations. A pair of braking pins is operatively coupled to the pedal. Each braking pin is transitional relative to a corresponding wheel between locked and unlocked configurations. Each braking pin is engaged with the corresponding wheel when the braking pin is in the locked configuration, and each braking pin is disengaged with the corresponding wheel when in the unlocked configuration. The braking pins are coupled to the pedal such that movement of the pedal from the unlocked configuration to the locked configuration causes the braking pins to transition to their respective locked configurations, and movement of the pedal from the locked configuration to the unlocked configuration causes the braking pins to transition to their respective unlocked configurations.

  • Publication number: 20190075939
    Abstract: An adaptable child carrier system includes a harness having a pair of shoulder straps extendable over the wearer's shoulders and a lower panel extendable over a portion of the wearer's back. A primary support is selectively attachable to the harness. A pair of connecting straps extend between the primary support and the shoulder straps. The child carrier system is selectively transitionable between a first and second wearing modes without re-orientation, removal, reversal or modification of the harness part. In the first wearing mode, the primary support is attached to the pair of shoulder straps such that the lower panel and the primary support are separated from each other so as to reside on opposed sides of the wearer's torso when worn by the wearer. In the second wearing mode, the primary support is attached to the lower panel to define a cavity to receive the child for carrying the child adjacent the wearer's back.

  • Publication number: 20180289205
    Abstract: Systems, methods and cartridges for carbonating or otherwise dissolving gas in a precursor liquid, such as water, to form a beverage. A gas source can be provided in a cartridge which is used to generate gas that is dissolved into the precursor liquid. A beverage medium, such as a powdered drink mix or liquid syrup, may be provided in the same, or a separate cartridge as the gas source and mixed with the precursor liquid to form a beverage. The use of one or more cartridges for the gas source and/or beverage medium may make for an easy to use and mess-free system for making sparkling beverages, e.g., in the consumer's home.
