  • Patent number: 10924411
    Abstract: Systems and methods are described to enable the load-balanced use of globalized network addresses, addressable throughout a network to access a network-accessible service. A set of global access points are provided, which advertise availability of the globalized network addresses. On receiving a request to access a network-accessible service, a global access point can select an endpoint for the service from among a number of data centers, based on a desired distribution of traffic among the data centers. The access point then forwards the traffic to the selected endpoint. In one embodiment, the access point applies network address translation to enable the traffic to be routed to the endpoint without terminating a connection at the endpoint. The access point may use a variety of techniques to ensure resiliency of the network and knowledge of available endpoints.

  • Patent number: 10880218
    Abstract: Systems and methods are described to enable the load-balanced use of globalized network addresses, addressable throughout a network to access a network-accessible service. A set of global access points are provided, which advertise availability of the globalized network addresses. Globalized network addresses can be divided among different pools, and each service can be associated with addresses of more than one pool. To increase resiliency, access points can advertise different pools of addresses to different neighboring devices, creating different pathways to reach the access point. If an error occurs on a neighboring network, a client can try to access the service via an address of a different pool, which can be expected to be routed through a different neighboring network, thus enabling the client to reach the access point.

  • Publication number: 20200401444
    Abstract: Techniques are disclosed for reducing the latency between the completion of a producer task and the launch of a consumer task dependent on the producer task. Such latency exists when the information needed to launch the consumer task is unavailable when the producer task completes. Thus, various techniques are disclosed, where a task management unit initiates the retrieval of the information needed to launch the consumer task from memory in parallel with the producer task being launched. Because the retrieval of such information is initiated in parallel with the launch of the producer task, the information is often available when the producer task completes, thus allowing for the consumer task to be launched without delay. The disclosed techniques, therefore, enable the latency between completing the producer task and launching the consumer task to be reduced.
