  • Patent number: 11003494
    Abstract: Method and device for scheduling of dataflow components Embodiments relate to a method for scheduling dataflow components (6), executed by a scheduling device (4), comprising repeating the following steps for successive increasing input message rates (1/?): —applying (S1) an ingress message flow (F1) at an ingress message rate (1/?) to a distributed dataflow comprising at least one dataflow component (6) executed by respective processing devices (5), —determining (S2) a total latency (?t) of at least one of dataflow component (6), and —determining (S3) a serving rate (?) associated with said ingress message rate (1/?) for said at least one dataflow component (6), in function of said ingress message rate (1/?) and said total latency (?t), until the scheduling device (4) is unable to determine a serving rate (?) associated with the ingress message rate (1/?), thereby determining a maximum serving rate for said at least one dataflow component (6).

  • Patent number: 9479542
    Abstract: An apparatus (CEG) for interconnecting a user agent to a cluster of servers, the apparatus comprising a first protocol agent configured to exchange first messages with said user agent according to a SIP protocol, wherein said apparatus has the role of a User Agent Server; a second protocol agent configured to exchange second messages with a selected server from among said cluster of servers according to the SIP protocol, wherein said apparatus has the role of a User Agent Client; interconnection means for relaying messages from among said first messages and said second messages between said first protocol agent and said second protocol agent; wherein said second protocol agent is further configured to terminate elasticity control messages received from said cluster of servers.

  • Patent number: 8856544
    Abstract: The present invention provides improved security in a virtual machine. By extending the capabilities of modern secure processors, privacy of computation is provided from both the owner of the equipment and other users executing on the processor, which is an advantageous feature for rentable, secure computers. In addition to the hardware extensions required to secure a virtualizable computer, an infrastructure for the deployment of such processors is also provided. Furthermore, a signaling flow to establish the various relationships between the owner, user and manufacturer of the equipment is disclosed.

  • Publication number: 20090313135
    Abstract: Method for performing transactions on multimedia streams being produced over a chain of contributing producers in a ICT network environment, wherein for every transaction from one party to another party a target multimedia stream is generated with a number of contributing streams, wherein for every intended transaction of a target multimedia stream digital transaction data for said transaction is generated and associated with the target multimedia stream, wherein the digital transaction data of every transaction is managed centrally in the ICT network environment so that the chain of contributing producers can be traced.
