  • Patent number: 11349724
    Abstract: An approach for a software defined networking manager to perform a predictive analysis of proposed modifications to a software defined network (SDN) is presented. A method comprises receiving entity logical associations that are captured in a set of rules implemented in a SDN. Once a proposed modification to the entity logical associations is received, without implementing the proposed modification and without modifying the set of rules, impacted entity associations, from the entity logical associations, are identified. Upon receiving input indicating that the proposed modification is to be accepted, an updated set of rules for the SDN is generated by updating the set of rules based on the proposed modification, and the updated set of rules is implemented in the SDN.

  • Publication number: 20210314219
    Abstract: Some embodiments provide a method for distributing a group definition for a group of machines. The method receives the group definition, which includes (i) a span of the group that specifies a set of sites at which the group is to be used and (ii) a set of criteria for machines to be included in the group. The set of criteria includes at least a location criteria specifying one or more sites. The method distributes the group definition to each site in the set of sites. At each site in the set of sites, a local network control system of the site determines a set of machines in the group based on the set of criteria. Only machines in the one or more sites specified by the location criteria are determined to be in the group.

  • Publication number: 20210314227
    Abstract: Some embodiments provide a method for distributing a service rule that is to be enforced across a first set of sites and that is defined by reference to a group identifier that identifies a group of machines. The method distributes the service rule to each site in the first set of sites. The method identifies at least one site in the first set of sites that is not in a second set of sites that has already received a definition of the group. The method distributes the group definition to each identified site in the first set of sites that has not already received the definition of the group.

  • Publication number: 20200364001
    Abstract: In one example, workload attributes associated with workloads running in a virtualized computing environment may be retrieved. A distance analysis may be performed using the retrieved workload attributes to generate a distance matrix that identifies a distance between each workload and each other workload. Further, a cluster analysis may be performed on the workloads based on the distance matrix to generate clusters, where each cluster may include identical workloads. Furthermore, the identical workloads in each cluster may be associated with at least one security policy to provide security services in the virtualized computing environment.

  • Publication number: 20200244702
    Abstract: This disclosure presents processes and systems that translate policies defined for virtual objects, such as virtual servers, applications, and databases, of a distributed computing system into identity information of services provided by virtual objects to computing devices located outside the distributed computing system. Processes and systems form object graphs of computing device identity information, virtual objects, and virtual object identify information. Processes and systems translate polices for controlling network between the computing devices and the virtual objects into identity information of the computing devices and the virtual objects. The identify information of the virtual objects and the computing devices is used to create rules for controlling network traffic between the virtual objects and the computing devices.
