  • Patent number: 11108732
    Abstract: Virtual networks may be launched in a provider network with an initial IP address space (e.g., an IPv4 CIDR block). Methods are described that allow additional IP address spaces to be added to a virtual network. A new IP address space for a virtual network may be specified via an API. The specified space may be checked to insure that it does not overlap with IP spaces that are associated with the virtual network. If there are no overlaps, the space is added to the network, for example by adding the space to the network's route tables.

  • Publication number: 20200379818
    Abstract: Techniques are described for enabling users of a service provider to manage placement preferences used to launch virtualized computing resources into a fleet of dedicated physical servers. Users can use one or more service provider interfaces to provide input indicating various placement preferences associated with a fleet of physical servers dedicated for use by a user of the service provider. These placement preferences can be used to determine at which physical server virtualized computing resources—for example, virtual machine (VM) instances, containers, and the like—are launched in response to launch requests. Among other benefits, the ability to configure customized placement preferences enables users to better satisfy various performance, reliability, software licensing, and other considerations users may have with respect to how their resources are placed within physical server fleets.

  • Patent number: 10735499
    Abstract: A control-plane component of a virtual network interface (VNI) multiplexing service assigns one or more VNIs as members of a first interface group. A first VNI of the interface group is attached to a first compute instance. Network traffic directed to a particular endpoint address associated with the first interface group is to be distributed among members of the first interface group by client-side components of the service. The control-plane component propagates membership metadata of the first interface group to the client-side components. In response to a detection of an unhealthy state of the first compute instance, the first VNI is attached to a different compute instance by the control-plane component.

  • Publication number: 20190356587
    Abstract: Methods and apparatus that allow clients to connect resource instances to virtual networks in provider network environments via private IP. Via private IP linking methods and apparatus, a client of a provider network can establish private IP communications between the client's resource instances on the provider network and the client's resource instances provisioned in the client's virtual network via links from the private IP address space of the virtual network to the private IP address space of the provider network. The provider network client resource instances remain part of the client's provider network implementation and may thus also communicate with other resource instances on the provider network and/or with entities on external networks via public IP while communicating with the virtual network resource instances via private IP.
