  • Publication number: 20190222988
    Abstract: According to an example, a system may include an instance controller to manage service instances deployed on an infrastructure that facilitates data segregation and performance level compliance. The instance controller deploys a service instance of the service instances in a container and terminates the service instances in response to determining the service suite instance is idle based on the notification. Additionally, the system may deploy a component from the service instance from outside the container.

  • Patent number: 10346443
    Abstract: In some examples, information of a service instance provisioned or modified by a first system distinct from a management system is received, where the provisioning or modification of the service instance by the first system is initially unknown to the management system. As part of a binding phase, a model of the service instance is inferred. The management system manages a lifecycle of the service instance using the model and the policy.

  • Patent number: 10296952
    Abstract: In some examples, a marketplace system receives information from multiple service providers as part of onboarding of the multiple service providers with the marketplace system. Responsive to the onboarding, a cloud service created by the respective service provider is synchronized with the marketplace system. A marketplace catalog is linked with catalogs of the service providers, the linking including aggregating content of the catalogs into the marketplace catalog. Responsive to a request from a requester received through a portal of the marketplace system, at least one cloud service is identified using the marketplace catalog based on at least one search criterion of the request.
